Here are a few photos from a local Mardi Gras Parade. HERCULES. Since we are going to be in Disney World on Mardi Gras day we are getting our parades in now. We will be at another local parade tonight….Stay tuned for AMBROSIA pictures.
Another awesome night tonight!!
My 4th grader is so excited that she gets to bring in her solar system project to school tomorrow. She worked really hard on this and refused help insisting that she had to do it on her own. It is shiny and sparkly just like her…lol Look at that smile
Even our dog enjoyed visiting the other planets
This is just the beginning to many school projects to come.
We have been having our share of dreary weather, but this weekend was BEAUTIFUL!!
Here are a couple of shots I took while spending the afternoon outdoors along the bayou.
We need more days like this! :)
Gracie woke to find her face was painted and Riley had a paintbrush and a grin.
In Southeast Louisiana, we never see snow. Our elf decided to give us a little snow cheer. The smiles on the kids’ faces were priceless.
Our elf rules!
Oue elf, RIley, brought some teacher gifts and a Secret Santa gift, getting us ready for our day of school and work Christmas Parties! He even wrote a little message “Have fun at your paties” Isn’t he the most thoughtful ever?
As it gets closer to the school holiday break, the kids are anxious for some time off and just a little too wild. My little ones have not been behaving well lately and the bickering was over the top a couple of days ago. Riley decided to go back to the North Pole and not return for a day, but left the message “Be Good” behind. The kids were hurt and it affected them more than I thought. They missed their elf’s little escapades. Gracie wrote an apology letter to the elf in hopes of getting him back.
Riley returned this morning with a little letter of his own, letting the kids know how much it hurt him to be kept away from his family, but he was under orders. He also let them know that he has to report to Santa and he can NOT LIE so he has to report everything he sees.
Growing up in Cajun Land, I was surrounded by the copious natural beauty. This was taken just a few miles from where I lived as a child. Enjoy
Riley tried to stop Goofy from overdoing it, but it seems that Goofy didn’t quite understand.
