from the mouth of a 3 year old . . .

little miss (to shrimp): "since when did you become the mother?" (repeating exactly as i asked her 2 days ago!)

little shrimp: "8 weeks ago!"

me: "there's only 1 mother girls . . . "

little shrimp: "no . . . actually there are a lot of mothers. dylan's mother . . . your mother . . . daddy's mother . . . "

*********

me (to shrimp): "that sure is a big bite in your mouth."

little shrimp: "daddy . . . why don't you have a big bite in your mouth?"

daddy: "because it is easier to eat when you take small bites. you should try it sometime!"

little shrimp: "i know daddy . . . but i don't know how to cut!"

good music . . . good times . . .

a lot of people think mardi gras is a crazy . . . don't bring your family . . . girls showing their youknowwhats . . . kind of time. well . . . guess what? it's not at all. there is something for everyone at mardi gras. if you want the kind of time that i just described . . . yeah you can find that on bourbon street. but if you want to do things that are good, clean, fun . . . you can find that too!

this was the 3rd year for family gras . . . and it is always so much fun! seriously . . . it doesn't get much better than a weekend full of free concerts!

gavin degraw . . . sarah bareilles . . . zac brown band . . . sheena easton . . . cowboy mouth . . . jesse mc.cartney . . . better than ezra . . .

all in 2 days . . . and it didn't cost a thing!

little man had a great weekend too . . .
he finally got to eat some real food!

now we are looking forward to next weekend . . . the big weekend of mardi gras!

maybe someday . . .

i will learn that it's a lot easier to buy valentine's . . .
for 53 children . . .
but probably not any time soon . . . because it really is a lot more fun to make them!

hopefully those 53 children will really appreciate their melted heart crayons . . . i did have my oven on for 9 hours today! yes . . . i really did . . . 9 full hours! i will admit to my mistake of only buying 1 silicon heart mold with only 12 hearts . . . at least i did learn something today!

little rascals . . . and a storybook ending . . .

sunday was an absolutely perfect day! the weather was great and we spent the entire day just having fun. we took the little ones to the little rascals parade and then headed to storyland for some more fun. of course after we were finished at storyland . . . the girls were quite ready to go home. so we went to audubon park and played and played and played some more . . . and that is why there are not any photos from the park!

piggies are lovely . . .

especially first time ever piggies!
