It is no longer Week 9. In my defense, though, I did take these pictures during Week 9 and just couldn't get them up until now. So.
Over the weekend we had a family Mardi Gras party! (No, not on Tuesday; but then we aren't Catholic or celebrating Lent, either, so maybe that doesn't matter after all). It was lots and lots of fun--and why wouldn't it be when we had fantastic cream-cheese filled King Cake and a platter-ful of steaming hot Beignets!? Thanks to everyone that came to party with us (and brought food!)!
