MARDI GRAS 2012

As you can see we all had a great time..I've decided to do a tribute to the Italians as our next Kitchen is on March 15..Ides of March..
Will fix home made pizzas, have non alcoholic beer and working on getting some non alcoholic wine too. Jamie is busy picking out the decorations for it..We usually have them toward the end of the month but this one is the 15th so will cut my resting time down. Pictures to come.
Queen Bonnie and King Eddie...you can't tell by the expressions, but they were happy to be crowned..ha




























My buddy Joe..and the lady in the red sweater just got her hair done and she looked lovely.






Louis and Elanor..who really did enjoy it..we had some left overs and Louis called his son and daughter in law to come down and have some..Which I took as a great compliment. I love it when the families come down and join in with the festivities.


























Family members joining in..really does put a smile on everyone's face.

Great photos! I love their smiles (when they are smiling) -- clearly having a good time! An Italian theme for the Ides of March is a great idea -- who doesn't enjoy pizza?

I said something to them once about not smiling..they said they were smiling on the inside, it was easier..ha

I love you for volunteering your time down there. I think if everyone volunteered in a cause bigger than themselves the world would be a better place.

Love the expressions, hahaha. I'm finally poking back around in the blogosphere ... thankgoddess that you are one of the steady ones. Seems like lots of folks in blogland have gone on sabbatical too ... like I thought I was the only one allowed to be such a slackass or something. Good to read you again.

Everybody's dream is to know at least one "YDG".

'Tis a pity the family WAIT to be invited down before joining in, but yeah, I'm sure it does make it all the more special. I hope my nursing home has someone like you to brighten the day, when my kids finally off load me to one!

Blogger rule 3502981.58372958392c paragraph 92 section XXXIV plainly states:
Any blogger blog post that contains the words "Mardi Gras" in the title must contain photos of boobies and beads.

Very festive and colorful, and yes I was expecting some boobs too.

You are an inspiration. I think I am going to suggest this to our women's group - perhaps it could form a splinter group!

Rox said...

I love that you do this for the seniors! You're a special dame! LOL!
