Fat & Happy on Fat Tuesday!

We had a great time this past weekend at Galveston Mardi Gras. I was a bit worried about more raucous crowds than usual. In the past, there's been a $20 fee per person to get onto the Strand, but this year there was no entry fee at all. Fortunately, the day time provided a festive atmosphere for all. Little K especially liked dangling Mardi Gras beads for the second story of a building and then tossing them to her "friends" on the streets below. Boy, can this kid tease!
Monday proved to be a lot of fun for Little K at nursery school. Since her primary teacher is an LSU grad, Mardi Gras was in full swing. Each child picked out two necklaces and made a Mardi Gras mask. At some point during the day, Little K's class visited the other class rooms to shake their beads and shout "Happy Mardi Gras!" Too fun.
This morning, Little K was not about to head to school without a photo of her adorned mask. Let the good times roll! We now have so many Mardi Gras beads that I'm stepping all over them. I think I'll take some to our Mardi Gras party tonight at the church. It'll be relatively tame but celebratory. Happy Fat Tuesday to all!
Until the next nap time...
