It's Mardi Gras Time!

Around here, that's just another excuse for a big party.  You wouldn't catch us anywhere close to New Orleans right now!  Sweet, innocent Lily and Rita are in New Orleans now with some friends.  Lordy, I am sure they are seeing things that will blow their minds!  I gave them strict instructions that their shirts were to stay down at all times!  Their eyes got so big when I said it and they just giggled...just wait!  I told them to send me pics and to make it back alive :)  I gave them their first tiny glimpse of a Mardi Gras parade last weekend at our local parade.  Bryce's band was marching so the girls and I brought Lily and Rita.  They were so cute and loved catching the beads.

That's as Mardi Gras as it gets at our house.  I had 4 extra boys spend the night last night and will have 3 extra tonight.  These breaks wear me out!!

Gracie looks like she enjoyed her first Mardi Gras celebration. Eat some King Cake for me and enjoy your day with all your kids and the extra kiddos too.
