It's Carnival!

I must say I am bubbly!! overfilled with excitement! My husband and I are located too close to New Orleans!! I have been here a little over a month and the feeling of carnival is driving me crazy! I have my masks,king cake,and some dixieland music too. I think today I am ditching the laundry and household chores to go see some parades. Carnival lasts until Fat Tuesday 2-21-12,so for the next week and a half I shall be posting pictures of the locals and the excitements. This is my first Mardi Gras,as to why I am so filled with joy. If you listen to this how could you not get jiggly..did I really say jiggly? that's what my granddaughter does when she hears it:)
And of course she wanted to try on grandma's mask.

I would like to share a link in case anyone feels the urge to come on down.

Have fun with it, Amy! I've only been to New Orleans in the summer when I was a kid with my grandparents. It must be a wonderland at Mardi Gras. Grab some of those necklaces for your little one to play with in a year or so! So cute!
