Mardi Gras 2008

I will share more later. But I had to get the carnival started! Aiyeeeeeeeee!

The King Cake is out, albeit a little disheveled. When the kids get home, we'll make our first cut. I wonder who will get the baby this year. The teenager got it last year, I think. He took all my beads to school today so I'm a little bare. Oy.

We're just warming up. I have had our Mardi Gras XM station tuned in and mom and I have been doing our dancing off an on.

This is guaranteed to get ya movin'!

This one too!

This is one of my favorite Mardi Gras songs . . . but the video is a tad boring. (I'm still looking for a goodie to share!) But, if you're ever in New Orleans, Mardi Gras World is a must. This is where most of the Mardi Gras floats are made. It's an amazing place.

I've never had any King cake nor heard any actual Mardi Gras music...I'm sure it is something you can "get down" too though!

Oh Rosa! I am SOOO jealous of that king cake? I'd love some, thank you!
I actually have a King Cake arriving tomorrow from New Orleans as a surprise for my dad's birthday! (Although I do think it is taboo to eat it after Mardi Gras.) haha!
How smart of you to have video! I should have thought of that!
It all brings me back! Thanks for stopping by!

I've had King Cake, but I've never been to New Orleans. The cake was yummy.
