Stella went with pink for Valentine's Day (but I don't think the polish will last that long).

Snow Ball

For months, Luke and two of his friends (along with Bridget, who lent a hand) have been planning a dance: The First Annual Snow Ball. It went down tonight and appeared to be a success.

Moveable Parts

Jack has had a lot to assemble since Christmas. He started out at the kitchen table, but had to take his work elsewhere.

We Finally Got Snow

Jack used some of the white to make a little friend with a mohawk.
