Mardi Gras!

Today is Fat Tuesday! Fat Tuesday marks the end of Mardi Gras and is a day for eating rich foods Here is the Wikipedia description
The terms "Mardi Gras" (pronounced /ˈmɑrdi grɑː/, "Mardi Gras season", and "Carnival season",[1][2][3][4][5][6] in English, refer to events of the Carnival celebrations, beginning on or after the Epiphany and ending on the day before Ash Wednesday. Mardi Gras is French for "Fat Tuesday" (in ethnic English tradition, Shrove Tuesday), referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season, which started on Ash Wednesday
We can think of some yummy, rich, fatty foods we would like to have like stinky goodness and temptations!

Why, that sounds like permission to get into dad's ice cream to us! Doesn't it to you? *shares*

Thank you so much for your kind words last week over our loss of Maxx. They are very much appreciated and are working magic toward healing our hearts.

You all look so adorable. Wasn't Mardi Gras at Scouts fun? Mom and I are super pooped, but it was worth it. Allie, you were a vision in your costume. You should have been one of the Queens. I am sending you my heart and dozens of smooches. Love, Mau
