More Snow

We seem to be covered in snow over here. Most of February has been wet. These pictures were taken Wednesday. There were big, slow falling flakes coming down, and the sun trying to peak through the heavy cloud cover.
Everything is muddy today, and so starts spring, or mud season over here. It's 50 degrees here today, and we're basking in the warmth.

Do you know how to do the Minuet?

The Minuet is a colonial dance that we do at our annual King's Ball in Ste. Genevieve. The King's Ball is held every year before lent, and everyone dresses up in colonial garb and dances and searches for a bean in their piece of cake, the King's Cake.

The King's Ball this year has come and gone, but it was written up in the Chicago Sun Times newspaper. Click here for the article.

I went to the King's Ball once, with my parents. I think I was 13. Maybe I'll try to find that picture.

Cats on Corqs

This picture was actually taken on Christmas Eve, on my Dad's porch, where the UPS man delivered our boxes of corqs. The fuzzy cat in the front is Cassandra, and the short haired grey cat on the other box is Shannon.
