Sassy Spa Parties and Mardi Gras Parades

Week 37: The kids had a great week of preparing for Valentine's Day and Mardi Gras! We worked hard making a mailbox for MV to take to school for her Valentine's Party and writing Valentine's cards for all of our friends. We are getting a little tired of glitter and hearts! MV had a field trip to the Children's Museum on Friday...she was so excited because she was able to ride the bus again. I guess I am the mean mom that doesn't let her child ride the bus to school so she can only look forward to field trips!

Ed and I had a date night on Friday night! The kids went to Parent's Night Out at our church (which they thought was a party for them) while we went to dinner at LeCreole! I can honestly say that I had the best meal I have EVER eaten! We splurged and had a crab cake appetizer that was to die for and white chocolate bread pudding (YUM)! Next time we have visitors, we will be sure to take you there! It was so delicious!

Saturday was a crazy day! MV had another basketball game - and she did great! She is amazing at blocking and running the ball down the court! Then, it was off to the Sassy Spa for a birthday party! It was such a cute party idea - the girls had their hair and make up done and then had manicures and pedicures!
MV with the birthday girl!


Pedicures (and lots of talk about Justin Bieber)

After a day of pampering, the girls had a fashion show and were treated to cupcakes!

We took the kids to their first Mardi Gras parade. It was the Krew of Orion parade and it was so much fun...except that it was cold!

Waiting for the parade to start

We loved dancing with the marching bands!

The kids are pros at getting beads!

Everyone wanted to throw beads to the cute kids dancing in the street!

We only made it through part of the parade - Ed was cold (he gave up his jacket to MV) and the kids were tired!

And on Sunday, we had an afternoon of Superheros...

and exhausted kids!
