Mardi Gras World
What fun Emma and I had at Mardi Gras World. We got to see how the floats for the parades were made, try on costumes, eat king cake and best of all (for Emma at least) get more beads!! :)

My favorite picture from our trip!
Emma loved this mask we bought at the French market. She earned quite a few smiles and complements as she sported it for several walks (and even to dinner one night).

We had a great time at the zoo in New Orleans!
The white tigers and white alligator were cool; but it was even cooler to pet the turtles, rat, hedgehog, chinchilla, and huge tortoise! We also didn't mind the nice warm sunshine either!!

Alex is off to the dance
in a dress made by Grandma Sandy!


Happy Valentine'S day!!!
Emma loves face paint and was thrilled to received some for Valentine's day. :)

Emma also decided (in true Fancy Nancy fashion) to make parfaits for our after dinner treat. Yummy!!! She is a great cook!

Just a few things we love about Emma's new school
The friendly climbable cow as you enter the building is fun for Emma and the fact that there is coffee for parents behind the cow is a nice touch for mama. :)

The front desk is covered with this cool work of art. Emma loves to find and have me find things in it with her.

We like that there are lots of kid sized things

We like the cool art work found both inside and out!

And we think it is very cool that they have steps up to a platform for the kids to see in the kitchen.

Ariel Calling
Last night Emma received an enchanted call from Ariel wishing her a good night. She loved it!! :)
Taking a break in between painting for a little storybook reading.
King Bidgood's in the Bathtub is one of our favorites!


Danke Oma Inge!
Meine Brille sind echt kool!!!

After 6 straight days of a fever over 101° and 2 different rounds of meds, Emma's fever finally broke! Today was also the first day she felt up to playing (guitar hero of course!) and eating (Indian of course!) We are glad to have our silly, happy girl back!!

Update 3
So, since Emma has a strep infection we have to wait until March 19th for a new surgery date. Keeping our fingers crossed we will be healthy next time around!
