Fat Tuesday Celebration

We've been having a family Mardi Gras celebration probably for as long as we've lived in this house. Maybe longer than that. My memory fails me. Often.

Here's a couple of pictures of Charlie enjoying the festivities:



And not all the way after. It eventually got worse. Bakeries must use a whole lot of food coloring to get this kind of icing. Tasty, but boy, does it stain! All he wanted to do was use a fork to get all the icing off. He did eventually eat the cookie, but the topping was the most exciting part.

We actually did more than just eat! Here is a bit of what was on the menu: crab cakes, pizza bread, lava cake, chips and dip, king cake, black bean tortilla soup, cheese sticks...yeah, we went for the theme.

Then we played L-R-C. It's a great game because everyone's in it until the very end and little boys ages three and up and participate without it being too difficult. We had a lot of fun, even if Uncle Nate did go home with all the winnings.
