Mardi Gras

The Barneses didn't want Mardi Gras to be missed in Dallas, so we created our own NOLA feel last Tuesday! Our mini Mardi Gras celebration included Jambalaya, Strawberry Abita, Beads, King Cake, live feed from Bourbon Street on the TV, Zydeco music and Tarot Cards! Laissez les bon temps roulet!

Making Jambalaya for the first time!

It turned out pretty yummy if I may say so myself :)

King Cake!

Emily came over to celebrate with us! And I think we have turned her into a fan of Strawberry Abita!

And Em brought her tarot cards! I drew the card that symbolizes pregnancy :)

Chad was learning the ropes of our new camera, so we never got a picture of him - but he had a pretty good time, all the same. He was pretty happy and thanked me for "embracing his culture" and we can't wait to do it again next year with our little man!

Check out Lauren's post about their New Orleans trip and see Carlyle dancing to a street band:
