Patrick brought home some feathered Mardi Gras masks for us on a recent trip to New Orleans and we've been having loads of silly fun with 'em. Lizzie was born in Mobile, Alabama which is also the birthplace of Mardi Gras on this continent. She attended many a parade as a wee thing and one of these days we've gotta take her back to experience the festivities. When we first moved to Alabama, I did a short stint working as an Mardi Gras float artist which you can read all about here. Happy Fat Tuesday y'all!
