Hello Monday




Can I first just tell you that here in NE Louisiana we would likely pay money to see sunshine.  It rained the entire weekend and is still raining and  is going to rain most of the next two weeks.  Constant rain just does not set well with me, I need sunshine! And, on top of the rain, it's cold!  And, did I mention that I cannot wait for spring?


It is Mardi Gras here in Louisiana and the assisted living facility where my Dad lives had a big celebration last week.  I went over and enjoyed the "par-tee" with him.



And, these two little darlings had a good time last weekend at a Mardi Gras parade held at the mall.  It looks as though they caught plenty of beads to enjoy in the months ahead.  This is one of the first years in a very long time that I have not even had a piece of King Cake.   Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday and then Ash Wednesday.  



Andi Kate celebrated her 3rd birthday yesterday but her party was on Saturday.  She has been looking forward to her birthday for 2-3 months.  I've never seen one so young get so excited anticipating her big day.  She enjoyed every minute of the celebration and we all enjoyed sharing it with her.


Now, do you know what this picture does to this Momma's heart?  Yep, it makes it smile really BIG!  Brandon took the girls to a Father/daughter banquet this past Friday night at their church.  I just love that they have these opportunities.  Such sweet memories!



The past month has found us playing Mexican Train (a domino game) twice.  It is such fun and not a lot of skill is needed but you might need to make some "smart moves" once in a while.  It's a great game to share with friends.  We play a few rounds, then enjoy some dessert, and then play a few more rounds.  There is  a whole lot of laughing done for sure!



Tommy and I had heard so much about the Longmire series that we decided to start watching it a couple of weeks ago.  We are thoroughly enjoying it and have finished season 1.  We only have 5 more seasons (with 10 shows in each season) to go.  Every character is perfectly cast for their part and it can get quite intense.  A really good series and especially when there's just nothing on TV.

  3. I just love family time with dominoes and other games! Those are memory making times.

    I think I'm the only person who doesn't like Longmire. My husband loves it though...there's just something about it that's not for me.

    Hope you have a fabulous Valentine's week. :)

  10. I thoroughly understand your need and desire for sunshine. The weather here has been better than what you have, but I need sunshine more than clouds.

    I hope your weatherman changes his forecast real soon!

  12. Oh you and me both with the cold weather!! But I bet you'll get spring and sunshine in Louisiana before we do in Michigan!! I'd forgotten about that train domino game. It's fun to play. And thanks for the Netflix recommendation. We are looking for another series to start. xo Deborah
