Today is Fat Tuesday and is one of our favorite family holidays. We usually decorate our house and celebrate with a big party and crawfish boil, but have failed to do so this year. Once we're really settled here in Colorado, we'll introduce the locals to what the party is all about!
Carter and I spent yesterday making some fun treats for us to eat tonight during our little Mardi Gras party here at the house. I've convinced the family to give up soft drinks for Lent (starting tomorrow), so we're going to have plenty of cokes and 7 Up tonight, too!
A few photos of Carter's preparations.....
