Happy Mardi Gras!


Help us celebrate Mardi Gras!


The mom grabbed a handful of her Mardi Gras beads for us to explore.
They seem innocent enough.


Why don't you put all of them out and see how tangled I can get them?
{{Sigh}}  It's snowing out there . . .


I'm only going near them if you bribe me with treats.








 So grab a Hurricane to drink


And cut a slice of King Cake

Maybe you'll be the one that finds the baby!*


Laissez les Bon Temps Roules!
(Let the Good Times Roll!)
Although we think maybe it should be changed to 
Let the Wild Times Roll!



*  Although there are various meanings to finding the baby, like it's good luck, usually the person who finds it hosts next year's festivities, or at least brings the King Cake.

Happy Mardi Gras! Your blog looks so festive, too. Beads are one of Precious' favorite toys. She would run off with at least half of them! MOL!

Have a great Tuesday!

Passing out treats instead of beads sounds like a good plan to me!

Oui Oui, We think you would have looked terrific in that last mask. We wanted to do a Mardi Gras post cause Mom has some exceptional beads, but she couldn't get her act together, as usual. Well, maybe next year! Hope you didn't eat too many beignets on Fat Tuesday. Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
