A Thousand Words Thursday


I have always loved this picture, and since it's close to Fat Tuesday, I thought it appropriate. Sam loved these beads and played with them/wore them all the time. They came in a box just for him from a kind man in New Orleans. I had purchased something on Ebay from the man, and for some reason it took a lot longer than expected to receive the item. So he "was going to send me a little something extra for my trouble". Yep...the box of beads. It was a good sized box, too, and the shipping was like $10. I couldn't believe that he did it, and I also didn't know what I would do with a box of beads. But, wouldn't you know it! My 13-month old son absolutely LOVED them.


My boys look just alike, huh?!?

They do look a lot alike. They are both so precious.

That is sweet that the man sent a box of beads. I lived in Galveston, Texas for many years. Galveston has Mardi Gras yearly like New Orleans. It is just as huge. It's huge. I used to have more beads than I knew what to do with.

Kids LOVE these beads. I like that they feel free to layer them :) I have a nagging feeling someone will get choked but I am totally overruled.

My son loves those things too! At New Orleans Square in Disneyland they have a band that plays and throws beads at the crowd. My son always ends up with a neck full!
