Friday Pictures - The Day Full of Calories and the Color Red

First, I want to express my thoughts and prayers to those who are affected by the tragedy at Northern Illinois University. I can't believe that almost a year later, another tragedy has hit a college that is so much like Virginia Tech. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about what happened at Virginia Tech, and now we have another college campus tragedy with fatalities. I'm at a loss for words...


Anyway, here are some pictures from yesterday...

The balloons (I realize my windows need some treatments...I have a pattern, Edie and I need to make it to the fabric store...)
The Krispy Kreme donuts (we put them in here to keep them fresher overnight)
The cards for the teachers (they have microwave popcorn attached...see illustration here) and treats Ray bought them.
Breakfast of champions...Krispy Kreme donuts and chocolate covered marshmellows.
Audrey is obviously ready for school.

Mmmmm donuts. They look wonderful, as did the chocolate covered marshmallows. Very good job mamma! Audrey looks so stinking cute in her striped tights. I want some!!

My heart goes out to all of those in Illinois as well, such a sad day.

I can't believe what happened at NIU. Three of my close girlfriends went there, so I'm pretty familiar with the place. Unbelievable.

Also, when I read your Valentine's entry from yesterday I didn't have the chance to comment, but it was the sweetest entry! I love all of the neat things you did with the girls to celebrate the day.

That looks like a great V Day! I'm so glad that I'm not the only mommy who occasionally feed her kids junk for breakfast.

Your kids are adorable.

What a cutie! Those donuts look SOOOOO good! I gave up sugar for Lent, which is always a bummer because Heart Day is right after Lent starts . . . you have no idea how much I want to eat one of those Krispie Kremes! Looks like you had an awesome day :-)
