The Blizzard of 2015

Last year, the twins had their first experience with snow.  Well, this year they got to experience a full on blizzard (at least by Louisiana standards).  The first day was mostly ice, but by day three we had an accumulation of a couple of inches!!!!!!  We enjoyed the snow by building snowmen, making snow angels, having snowball fights, making a sled out of plastic drawer (because why would someone in Louisiana have an actual sled?), making snow ice cream, and watching lots of Netflix.  The snow is melting now and I think we were all happy to get back to our regular schedule.  It was fun while it lasted.

Snow Ice Cream - Please ignore the pile of coats and shoes in the background


Even Sam enjoyed this weather!

Mardi Gras 2015

We ran the full gamut of Mardi Gras this year.  Aside from Drew and I going to Washington Mardi Gras, we did Shreveport Mardi Gras, New Orleans Mardi Gras and we even went to a parade in Henderson.  We had a blast at all of them.  The twins were so cute waving their hands screaming "throw me something mister!"  Next year I think we need to find a traditional Mardi Gras with chickens!!

Happy Valentine's Day!!

I thought we would make it an annual is last year's.

Our Little Ballerina

Emily has been asking to take ballet classes for months.  So I finally broke down and enrolled her in ballet class.  She was so excited on the first day, but also a little nervous.  As we were walking in, she asked Elson "Will you hold my hand and walk me in?"  It was a precious twin moment.  She quickly got over her nerves and loves it.

It should be noted that Elson also tried karate this day, but said he didn't need to go back.  He says he wants to try soccer next.

Alexandria Zoo

The twins had a day off of school last week so we decided go on an adventure to the Alexandria Zoo.  From my online research I discovered they had a new lion and a train.  However, upon arrival we were informed that the train would not be running that day.....poor Elson was pretty bummed.  Once we got over the disappointment of the train not running, we got down to business exploring the zoo.  We had a great time and had the entire zoo to ourselves.  The new lion was apparently VERY new to zoo life and I'm pretty sure he thought we were his lunch.  He kept attacking the glass standing between us and when he would calm down for a few seconds he just stare at the twins licking his lips.  It was a quite the adventure!!

Elson kept asking for the map of the zoo so he could tell us how to get to the lion

The train that wasn't running :(
