Mardi Gras

Our friends, Amy and Brian, invited us to their Mardi Gras Ball....our first experience. We had a great time but left at 11:30 for obvious reasons, ie notice my belly! This Mardi Gras thing is a huge deal in South Alabama! I never realized the month of February was a big ole party for those on the coastline. When you grow up in middle Mississippi you have no idea on how much you are missing out! Amy is part of the Periouettes (sp?) and they put on a show at 9pm. There was a queen and everything. Amy was part of the "Fire" dance group (there were many) and she did a great job! Our friend, Ashley (a fellow Perrouette,) danced to "Should've put a Ring on It" by Beyonce! So cute! After the show, the eating and drinking begins...I mean continues and then its a big dance party for everyone! So fun!

Jackson Baby Shower

Todd and I were given a shower in Jackson by our friends and family. So many people came that are close to us, and we felt so special! Even my friend, Cambre, and her baby, Neely, came from so far away to surprise me (Kansas City!) Thanks Lindsay and Madoyn for hosting it for us and all your preparation and time! We had a BLAST and thanks for all the great gifts....Anna Todd is a lucky little girl!
