100 days party

Marianna's class had a "100 days of school" party.  She had to count 100 things (we did beans) and bring them to school then they had a party.  A good excuse to do lots of counting and math I think!
 The 100 days snacktime (above) with her friend Andrew (the only other American in the class) and Darian, from India.  Below, her class and the first grade class together.  They must've joined forces for the party.  Fun!  Marianna loves her class, teacher, and school.  I am thankful.  The kindgergarten is comprised of 2 girls from Korea, on girl from Sweden, one boy from India, Africa, Austrailia, and one from somewhere I can't remember...along with the two Americans.  Very international!

Now that's what I call a gingerbread house:)

Some undiscerning folks may call this a gingerbread tent, or yurt of sorts. But to those of us in the know, it is a refined gingerbread cabin, and one with lots of bling at that. Thanks to Daniel, we made our first one this Christmas, and it was all from scratch, baby. Tasty too.
All right, it won't get any beauty awards, but hey, we had three happy customers!

Yes, my kids ate over their limit of sugar making and demolishing this thing.  But I guess that's a good reason you only do it once a year. 

Happy New Year!
