MV with the birthday girl!
Monday, February 6, 2012
We sat back and watched the movie filming for a little bit and then it was on to people watch! There are some crazy people walking down Bourbon Street, especially during Mardi Gras season! We called it an early night after beignets at Cafe Du Monde...we had breakfast reservations at Court of Two Sisters!
What a yummy jazz brunch and fun with friends. We all enjoyed the eggs benedict and then I tried to branch out and try some dishes that I normally wouldn't try - turtle soup was one and it was delicious! I will be having that again!
It was such a wonderful girl's weekend, I can't wait to get together with the girls again soon!
When I got home, we had to hurry up and get ready for a Super Bowl Party! The Howells and the Harpoles came over to celebrate and watch the game! The kids had fun running around, riding bikes and playing the yard! They were so worn out by the time the game was over that John Bay couldn't even make it to the bed before falling asleep! What a fun week of celebrating. I am exhausted and I think the kids were too!
(Ed didn't have time to take pictures while he was alone with the kids, so no documentation on how they looked while I was gone...)

I tried upload an amazing video of MV riding the pony, Celey at the barn, but of course I couldn't do it...but I will email it to anyone that wants to see! She did so great riding! Ed took her to her lesson and she was really showing off for her daddy! She trotted a few laps around the arena and then walked a lap and then repeated! She loved riding that pony. While they were at riding lessons, I took the night off and went to a painting party with some ladies from our church. Here is a picture of my masterpiece!What a great time I had painting! It was so much fun, I can't wait to do it again.
Mimi and Balba came over for a visit. We were so excited to see them on Friday night. MV had her first basketball game on Saturday morning - bright and early.
She is also amazing at blocking. When I asked her who taught her, she said no one, that is just what she thought she needed to do. The poor other little girl couldn't even get the ball when MV was blocking! (I am such a proud mom.)
