Yum Fun!!

There's nothing I can think of that beats deep fried dough covered with powdered sugar...known in these parts as beignets.  Yum!!  Share them with family...and it's perfect!

Before Darren, Deanna and the kids left yesterday, we met at Coffee Call to pigout on enjoy some beignets. We had a great time and, as you will see, things got quite messy! I'm pretty sure everyone in that restaurant was pretty happy when we left :) It all started with a little dab of sugar on their noses...of course, it wouldn't end there.

Look how hard Wesleigh is concentrating on Madelyn's face. She has her tongue out which must help her think :) family pics (211 of 39) family pics (220 of 39) family pics (228 of 39)

Before we got there, I was reminding Wesleigh what beignets are. She said, "Oh, yeah, I lika that!" And boy does she! family pics (251 of 33)

Gracie never actually ate the donut...she just licked the sugar! family pics (200 of 39)

And my favorites of the day, taken by my sweet Sister in law:

These two were inseperable. If Madelyn was around, Wesleigh was right by her. So sweet! 400550_10150506109099275_646374274_8800031_240647249_n 401035_10150506109249275_646374274_8800033_1643160352_n

When I lived in Galveston Texas we had beignets too but there were in squares and they puffed up big when fried. Super yummy. I'm glad you had a great time for Christmas.
