Fleur de Lis Friday

A snowy Friday, and time to stay inside and bake a few cupcakes. A certain grandson has a special birthday tomorrow, and I thought it would be fun to have a special treat. Matthew spent the day with us since Rush County had a snow day. It wasn't too bad out this morning, but it has been snowing all day and they are predicting more snow by morning.

We were supposed to celebrate his birthday tonight, but postponed the party due to the weather. We do plan to have some birthday fun tomorrow watching some basketball and doing a little bowling. After all, it's not every day a guy turns 6 on the 6th. I think that's called a golden birthday.

Speaking of gold, we are ready for a black and gold super bowl. So... I made the cupcakes with a fleur de lis in honor of the Saints. Yummmmm....

Gumbo got a custom designed scarf to show his love for the Saints. He is ready to watch his favorite team play football.

Dreaming of a Saints victory.

Andrew came this afternoon to join Darci, Haleigh, and Matthew here, and David, Shylah, and Jonathan all arrived safely for the weekend as well. We enjoyed traditional team dinner spaghetti for supper, and then played a little Yahtzee on the big screen in the basement.
Shylah and Matthew watch David take his turn. Fierce competition going on here.

Gumbo has found a new friend in Big Jon, his protector.

Andrew's turn as Darci watches.

Jim supervises the game while Haleigh dozes. He is helping her with her sleeping skills. Why not learn from the master?
