Happy Mardi Gras 2010

On Tuesday 2/16/10, we were the lucky recipients of a traveling Mardi Gras party! In preparation for Lent, our good friends the Volpes brought their family tradition to our home. There were beads and dancing and making of masks, plus they made an authentic, home made King Cake!!

Here we are in our beads. First, Gianna:

then Isaac:

and Maryam:

lastly, Xia looking overwhelmed by all of the festivities...

The beautiful King Cake:

Masks (made with Maryam's guidance - trace hands on construction paper - tape and string) and costumes up next. First Maryam:

then Xia-one-eye:

and Isaac:

If you're still reading, enjoy the dancing videos... (the music is more of Daddy's unique finds):

The evening closed with some Isa bouncing on a balloon. Happy Mardi Gras everyone!!
