More Mardi Gras

Since Stella didn't get to attend the first parade with us, we decided to "catch" (pun intended) another one on Friday night.  Grandpa Crane and Grandma Tonie were in town, so I sneaked off for a quiet dinner with them, Watts stayed with our favorite babysitter, and Mawmaw, Pawpaw, Pam, the girls, and Damon set off for the Southdowns Parade...
Looks like they had a little time to kill before the parade rolled...





Love the wad of gum in her mouth.  I never let them have gum so that is a special Mawmaw treat...
How cute is this little pixie?  Love her!





Apparently the lights at night are big and bright at a Mardi Gras parade...



Beads in the air!
Wow.  This poor woman...

Pam is the perfect parade companion because she has almost as much energy as the kids...



Cille is completely overwhelmed in this one...
Showing off her loot...


These two...my prayer for Stella is that one day her connection with her heavenly father is as strong as her connection with her earthly one...

Must have gotten chilly...


Stella is asleep; Cille is playing possum...


See what I mean?
Cille Beck: ALWAYS the last one to fall asleep...


The girls had a blast and were completely exhausted and limp when Damon carried them into the house that night.
