Mardi Gras Party

We just finished our Mardi Gras celebrations and are heading to bed.

The kids and I decorated the dining room with streamers and balloons, and each one of them made a carnival mask for our party.

Father B stopped by and shared some very. good. wine with us. The kids each chose a favorite appetizer food for "dinner" -- we had little hot dogs, chicken wings, and nachos. I added some spinach dip and Hawaiian bread and some cut up peppers to the mix to try and balance things out a little.

While The Younger Girl made dessert (warm chocolate chips cookies and vanilla ice cream) ...

... The Older Girl and The Boy watched some of the Olympics (and played with legos) ...
