Mardi Gras

We had our annual Mardi Gras celebration at Church last night - this is a fun tradition that the Man started 4 years ago (wow - has it been 4 years)...

...about 100 people braved the cold to come and enjoy some food and fellowship and some fun ??entertainment??

...There were magic card tricks...

...amazing that he always knew the card...

...there were hilarious skits - this one is the Bear Skit - you've seen it here before as we did it once for Cub Scouts...

...there were funny monologues by Lars and Ole...

...I dressed as Snow White and gave a Southern rendition on Rindercella - I'll see if I can get a picture from someone - if so I'll upload it later...

    There was also other stuff, jam and my favourite - golden syrup! We used to have pancakes quite often, but always on pancake day!

    I was very amused to discover that all of my French friends buy their pancakes in packets from the supermarket - then they warm them up in the fancy crepe pans!

  3. Wouldn't be Lutheran without Ole and Lars!

  4. You all have such fun. What a great Mardi Gras ! MOM

  5. Looks like fun! I was in an elevator at a local hospital yesterday and a doctor got on wearing tons of Mardi Gras beads. It made me giggle.

  7. looks like a lot of fun! i've never celebrated mardi gras...

  8. What fun! My daughter was supposed to go to a friends church that does this but we got hammered snow and most everything was
