During Mardi Gras/Valentine's this year, we planned a quick day trip to Anacoco to see our most favorite Aunt Hezzy! Sadie and Rylie were off of school, so they got to come, too!
Ever the creative hostess, Heather had a little Valentine's craft up her sleeve...
The children listened very intently to the instructions..
..while Hezzy showed them exactly what they were going to do!
Painting their little hands..
Quick break for a cute pic!
...and wah-lah!! Handprint Valentine's! So simple, so cute!!
Here's Callie, working on hers:
"Ahhhh, this tickles!!!!!"
Rylie and her perfect little craft!
To celebrate Mardi Gras this year, I made these Award-Winning Pecan Praline King Cake Cookies!! An LC Alum and friend of mine won a bake-off with this recipe...before putting the recipe in her new cookbook! Of course, we had to try them!
And they were perfection. It was actually pretty easy and each one was like a feast, a mini-king cake all for yourself! Like I said.. perfection. ;))
Happy Mardi Gras, y'all!!
