February

This month has been kinda slow, not a whole lot going on.

We made a visit back home for Kyle's sister Kayla's graduation from comestology school. We were really glad to see everyone back home! We had not been home since Thanksgiving. The kids really hate making the trip, and it will be a while before we are able to go back with the gas prices being so high!

NOBTS put on a progressive dinner for Valentines so Kyle and I went a met some new people and had great time.

I got the Pioneer Womans Cookbook and I love it! I think I have made at least 4 recipes from it since I got it.  And they were edible and everything...

We just had our friends the Powells come in to visit. We had a really good time with them. On Saturday we brought the kids to the Aquarium and then went to Deanies for lunch. It was our first time to eat there and it was very good! The kids were excited to eat there because Adam Richman from Man vs. Food had eaten there before. Tyler was excited because he got to try raw oysters for the first time. 
Sorry its grainy...its from my cell phone
He was not impressed...didn't like the gritty texture. Very funny!

We also we to a parade in Metairie. The kids enjoyed themselves.


Here are my little Mardi Gras decorations... we have so many beads. We copied a neighbor and strung some beads from our balcony. I would get a picture but it's raining.

Loving life here in Nola!
