Fat Tuesday - Happy Mardi Gras

Mardi Gras....Carnivale....Fat Tuesday....whatever you call it...it's all fun! 

 Fat Tuesday refers to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten Season which starts Ash Wednesday.  We will be studying the religous aspect of Mardi Gras today along with some Mardi Gras fun teachings...taking a quick break today from all things Suess...

Here is how our morning is going......


Kids woke up to this...

Found all the beads....

Girls are ready!

Recognize her?

Sammie...

Will you be doing anything for Mardi Gras today?

yes... we were planning on a party when the kids come home form school but I don't know if I can get to the store today since 2 of my kids are now down with the flu.

but i already bought the ingredients for a KING CAKE that i am about to mix up right now. google it if you are not familiar w/it. Its really cool. i looked up all the religious significance stuff about the holiday and we are going to go over it tonight.

in the past we always had donuts too.

Hi Melissa!
Great post! Love all the festive decorations! In the past we haven't done too much with Mardi Gras, but I want to! I will be posting about our Lenten plans sometime today! Thanks for linking up to NOBH again!

Hi Melissa,

First I wanted to say thank you. I received my button pin in the mail today and it is beautiful! We also had a great day celebrating Fat Tuesday. We made masks and had a fun dinner. I even found a Kings Cake at a local bakery and that was our after dinner treat! Very fun. I love all your decorations. They are amazing. The kids sure look like they are have a great time. I love the masks!
