We had lots of fun and food today for Fat Tuesday! We usually do a little more for Mardi Gras and spread it out over a week, but it was early this year and I had Valentines stuff to do last week! :) We got out all our beads and stuff that our cousins have caught for us at parades and had a ball playing with everything! laissez les bons temps rouler!
|mini king cakes for breakfast!|
|My Momma got them these bags, and we store all their stuff in them, so fun to get it all out every year!|
|Jambalaya, cajun black eyed peas, corn (it is Iowa afterall!), and toast!|
|king cake bars!|
Now the boys are off the bed to read "The Amazing Adventure of The Mardi Gras Bead Dog" along with Merritt's nightly fave, "The Bourbon Street Band is Back." So festive!
