Skipped Mardi Gras in New Orleans this year because there were just too many exciting events in Texas for our babies over the next few days. Today happened to be their 100th day of school & silly hair day! So we had all the kids and grandbabies here for a Mardi Gras dinner of jambalaya and a king cake from Gambino’s.
Besides we have some plans in the works for parading in the future!
Not sure how or why we have waited so long to go check out this beautiful park in Fredericksburg, TX, but today seemed like a perfect day with beautiful weather for our family to get out and do some exploring! Bitty and I also really enjoyed searching for heart shaped cactus.
Remember when we were late teens/early 20’s and our parents were so lame for staying home on a Saturday night? Fast forward two decades on a Saturday night and my husband and I are putting together a thousand piece 80’s themed puzzle and our grandkids will be spending the night tomorrow night. Not even forty yet, but I prefer this phase of our life.
What else should I have made for breakfast on what would have been my Maw-Maw’s 90th birthday? Her homemade biscuits of course! Our little ladies were ecstatic to be able to eat the same drop biscuits their great grandmother always made and are ready to learn how to bake this recipe too! I simply love how much they love to be in the kitchen with me, especially when it comes to learning family recipes.
Still can’t believe Maw-Maw would have turned 90 today. So thankful for the many birthdays I did get to share with her.
Today was a day full of intentions. Some things were checked off of a list and well a few weren’t. Most importantly we made sure to spend time with our children and get out of the house and have some fun with them. Bitty sat completely still through an entire movie this afternoon with a huge smile just about the entire time. Not sure if it was an indicator that”Sing” was an incredibly good movie or our baby is growing up. Can hardly believe she’ll turn five this month.
This evening I started a yoga challenge and the girls happily joined in. A constant reminder that little eyes miss nothing!
