Fat Tuesday Fun

It is that time again in New Orleans...Mardi Gras.  I have the fondest memories of  New Orleans.  I  attended Tulane University to earn my Masters degree and I never wanted to leave.  I made sweet friends and fell in love with a city.  I lived on Valance and Magazine street and I remember as the parades went by, it was me screaming as loud as the children, "throw me somethin Mister".  It was hoot checking out all the treasure we caught.
Every year I try to do a little something on Fat Tuesday for my kiddos.  Last year we ate King cake and wore funny glasses and draped ourselves in beads.  This year Nate is home so it will be even more fun.
We have a science fair to attend this evening and then... "L'aissez  Les Bon Temps Rouler",   Let  The Good Times Roll!
Are you doing anything for Fat Tuesday in your neck of the woods...Would love for you to share.
