Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!

This Fat Tuesday came with a smaller celebration.  It was just us and I didn't go overboard with the party prep.  The menu was simple as well.  We feasted on spinach salad, cornbread, and jambalaya with turkey kielbasa.  Dessert, because Fat Tuesday requires a fabulous dessert, was brownies with cookie dough topping. 

We spent some time at dinner discussing Lent and what we feel about giving up or adding something to our lives.  I expressed my belief that what we do during this time should make an impact in our lives and the lives of others.  K16 is going to spend more time in prayer.  H13 is going to give up yelling when angry.  S11 is still trying to decide how he will mark Lent.  M8 is giving up ranch dressing.  Rob and I are still discussing what we are going to change.  It feels as if there have been so many changes in the last six months.  Perhaps spending more time being intentionally grateful will be enough
