Molly and I hosted a Mardi Gras playdate today. I was given a boxed king cake mix, and finally had a reason to make it. After the baking was complete, I resolved to leaving the bread making to my mom. Kneading dough is a mess! But, the king cake turned out well.
Molly wanted to wear all of the sparkly necklaces before her friends came over. She wore at least one bead all day, and cried when they had to come off for nap time and her bath. She made sure that Daddy and I were appropriately adorned too.
In addition to playing Mardi Gras music, and eating king cake, we had a mask-making craft for all the kids. I intended to take pictures during the craft, but I had to attend to my own crafter. I was lucky to get Molly to hold her mask like Daddy's glasses for a quick pic.
On a side note, as I was preparing pizza for dinner tonight, Chad asked Molly if she liked pizza, and she quickly responded, "I love pizza!" It was so funny to hear her say that. She is doing very well with her words and sentences.
