Here is Luz on Mardi Gras day with her favorite Nyx catch, a second line, Saints-themed umbrella:
And with Uncle Richmond...he is in costume, dressed as someone from a zombie t.v. show or movie (which I am too out of touch with to recognize, ugh):
I know, I am still posting Mardi Gras pictures! And there are more, yes, plenty... Papa-T rode in a parade this year so there is so much to share. Unfortunately, I was out of town for most of last week for work (and managed to fit in a quick stop in Downtown Disney World, which was really cool, incidentally) and then I ran 26.2 miles yesterday (and, consequently, can barely walk today). At any rate, as is usually the case, things are way too busy around here. So, I am taking deep breaths, slowing down as much as possible (and with my current physical limitations it is rather possible), and remembering to enjoy a few quiet minutes with the kids at the end of the day (even if those minutes involve being climbed on and shouted at - so goes the life of a mama).
