Mardi Gras Cake

Happy Fat Tuesday!

To celebrate, my little helpers and I made this fun and festive tricolored Mardi Gras Cake for dessert!
My kiddos were so excited to bake a Mardi Gras Cake this year!
Missouri doesn't really celebrate Mardi Gras here but we still had our cake and red beans a rice for dinner to celebrate then we made masks to wear!
I remember going to Mardi Gras parades in Florida and Alabama when I was younger but I never really got into them until I had kids and moved to Louisiana. Every single city celebrated Mardi Gras for weeks there with not just parades but parties, balls, luncheons, and all out events. 
Since we were in Louisiana for almost six years, we got to be pretty Mardi Gras crazy and we sure to miss the celebration!
What is Mardi Gras?
Mardi Gras (/ˈmɑːrdi ˌɡrɑː/), or Fat Tuesday, refers to events of the Carnival celebration, beginning on or after the Christian feasts of the Epiphany (Three Kings Day) and culminating on the day before Ash Wednesday (known as Shrove Tuesday). {From Wikipedia}

Green Eggs and Ham Quiche | Dr Seuss Day

Happy Birthday to our favorite children's book author, Dr Seuss!

My family and I spent the last two weeks attending Dr Seuss events at our local libraries. We made crafts, red stories, ate treats, watched movies, and played games in honor of Dr Seuss. At home to celebrate I made this tasty Green Eggs and Ham Quiche for dinner and it was the perfect way to end a fun filled week!
Movie night at our library was "The Grinch"
Seuss Science Day at the Discovery Center children's museum in Springfield.
Red Fish, Blue Fish craft.
My two book lovin' cuties!
Can they get any cuter?!
Ava's school celebrated with a Dr Seuss week. She missed some days because of snow but got to wear green and have green eggs and ham for lunch on Fun Friday! 
We joined her for school lunch and had a blast!
Another day, another Dr Seuss party!

"Say!
I like green eggs and ham!
I do! I like them, Sam-I-am!
And I would eat them in a boat!
And I would eat them with a goat...
And I will eat them in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
They are so good so good you see!" 
- Dr Seuss
