Fat Tuesday, Hats, Caps, and Feathers, Oh My!

Tuesday, March 8th
For Fat Tuesday / Mardi Gras we had a yummy meal of New Orleans inspired foods.  We had Chicken Gumbo and Multi-colored pasta with crab meat. 

At dinner we talked about the significance of Fat Tuesday and the events leading up to Lent. 
After dinner we took Grandpa Don to the library for story time.  Tonight's theme was Hats and Caps!  We read "Caps for Sale," which is a very fun story, as well as looking at picture books with hats from around the world.  After stories, we made newspaper hats and decorated them.
And played with the straws...
