We celebrated pre-Fat Tuesday Sunday night at our house with this gorgeous, glittery king cake from Sucre in New Orleans. Check out their website--the macaroons are de-vine!! And, they ship.
Then we continued our celebration tonight with our annual Mardi Gras Parade/ pancake supper which was followed by a variety show. Both of my daughters performed in the show. My middle daughter tapped her way through a selection from Hairspray with a friend, and my oldest (gulp) performed a guitar SOLO--her first public performance. And, oh my, there were over 200 people there!!
I know that you are dying to see Sallie tap dance, but I am sad to report that the video will not export from my phone to my computer. Yes, you read that correctly. I am a parent who does not own a proper video camera. Please don't report me to DHS.
What I can show you is a rather crappy, sideways video of a stunning debut performance by my daughter Anne who is singing Ingrid Michelson's Take Me the Way I Am (this video totally doesn't do her justice--she sounded great!).
Happy Fat Tuesday everyone! Laissez les bon temps roulez!!
AND . . . Happy Chinese New Year! I've got dragons on my brain today . . . sketching dragons.
