Mardi Gras Themed Family Dinner

February 17, 2019

Mardi Gras is this week, and it makes me nostalgic for our trip there a few years back.

The big sister of one of the girls in the class is the super talented Molly from Simply Sweet Desserts.  I asked her if she had any ideas for emoji snacks, and in no time at all, she sent me this...
