My swap box is here!!!!!!

Iara was my swap partner and I'm just going to say, SHE IS FABULOUS!!!!!! Even the box itself was awesome! My daughter Laney especially loved the tomato pic. She was so excited I had to hold her back.

She even had her own mini package with "the coolest pencils ever", she kept hugging them.

This is most of my swap package, I got 2 pair of earrings and the best slippers EVER!!! Not to mention the fabric and other goodies, I have fabric dreams for the fabric already.

My absolute FAVORITE item in the package is the drool bib for Brutus. Yes, this is him in his "Drool tu Brutus?" bib, yes, with drool dripping from his jowels. He actually loves the bib.

Iara, a thousand thank yous! My husband was so impressed, he was almost as excited as Laney and I.

Mardi Gras...Koeneman style

Ok, no matter where we are I always make a mardi gras dinner with a King's Cake. Over the years the menu varies, but it's always New Orleans inspired. My kids also love explaining to their friends what Mardi Gras is and also about the king's cake. This year I made jambalaya , Paula Dean style.

And my giant King's Cake!!
