February 20 ~ Mardi Gras

It's Mardi Gras, and the gang are all feeling festive! Iggy's quite proud of his "antlers" and Flex and Ayla love their masks. Mini-Me, on the other hand, seems to be having a few issues with his, and is shouting in protest as I took this photo. They just love to ham it up for the camera!

I'm really, really touched by all your lovely comments about Nevaeh - thank you all so much! By the way, for those of you who asked, it's pronounced "Neh-vay" :) - my sister was blown away by the reaction. She's very new to photography and has taken very few shots. I'm really glad M is getting into taking photos, now that Nevaeh is into a routine and is gettting a bit bigger; it means I don't feel QUITE so lonesome for her. Between photographs and the webcam, all I'm missing are the snuggles!

Hope you're all having a good day - it's been another long haul at work, trying to book some appointments. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that in the next few days I'll have some response to all the letters I've mailed out to customers about reviewing their mortgage. Anyone in the Sunderland area want a mortage? Let me know! :D

{{{HUGS}}} to all who want 'em!

LOL Anna, you really outdid yourself with this shot!! I love all the little accesories you have for these pics.

I hope all your efforts at work pay off and that you're inumdated with people wanting help with mortgages :)

My dad was just in New Orleans...but came home before Mardi Gras started. I've never been, but have heard it's wild! Maybe someday I'll get to see it. =)

Got a laugh out of me also!
I haven't been here in a couple days and I got caught up today. The baby is just precious! Love those blue eyes!

Hey I'll take a hug!! Thanks for all of your comments during my dilemma this past week or so, i really appreciate them.

Mardi Gras ,must be great, would love to be there to experience it myself, maybe one day.

The gang did a good job of making the shot festive, give them my congratulations on a job well done, even Mini Me who was throwing a tantrum!

Very creative Mardi Gras photo, AB!
I look forward to seeing more photos of your darling niece! Keep us posted about your new job duties!

Annie said...

I'm gathering from your comments that the housing market is in a slump where you are. You'll just have to remind people that now's the time to buy!!!

Your niece is beautiful! It would be hard to stay away from such a face.
