Mardi Gras was so much fun this year! Mommy and Daddy were invited to go to the Krewe of Centaur’s Ball with some friends. We got to get all dressed up in a formal gown and tuxedo. We had a “fireman themed” table and we had so much fun with friends!
We took yall to the Krewe of Highland Parade. This is a fun parade to go to since it is on a Sunday, during the day and much more family oriented. They even throw lots of fun things like stuffed animals and moon pies! Will caught one of those! We went with our Sunday school class friends and it was a blast! Yall loved playing with the other kids before the parade and catching the fun stuff (although the loud noises were not Hayley’s favorite, so we had ear phones for back up).
And one of yalls favorite things we did was make “King Cake Bubble Up.” It is basically a king cake casserole. Hayley you couldn’t wait for it to get out of the oven for a taste!
Love yall to the moon pie and back 😉
Happy 2017! Its going to be an amazing year! So many fun trips and events planned! Its going to be a great one!
We (just mommy and daddy) took a ski trip with Aunt CaitCait and Uncle Josh.
We went to Silverthorne, CO and skied in Copper Mountain. It has been a LONG time since I have skied (junior high to be exact) so I was nervous. Josh had never skied, CaitCait hasn’t skied in about how long I was lacking, and Daddy, well….h’s just good at everything so he was a pro. It was a little rocky at first, but I am happy to report that I didn’t even fall on my first time down the mountain. Cant say that about all of the other times. Ha! I am not a very adventurous skier so I was perfectly happy just taking it easy on the bunny slopes!
The house we rented was so nice! had a beautiful view and we even had a little fox friend come and visit us!
One of the most fun things we did was dog sledding! We loaded up on a sled and about 10 Huskies pulled us all over. Its was so much fun!
We also got to take a horse and carriage ride through the snow and that was so fun! it took is to a lodge where we had hot coco and listened to a band play.
Even though I wasn’t very good at skiing (and I slowed your dad down a lot…bless him for sticking with me), I got altitude sickness while we were there it it was pretty rough. I was nauseous a lot and had migraines (my first time to ever have one). I even almost passed out on the ski lift. Luckily I made it to the top of the mountain and a hippie let me drink out of his water bottle, Ha! But all and all it was fun! I would love to take yall back one day when yall get older.
We missed yall!
