"I don't know what happened to Cinderella's stepmother and stepsisters," Berry says.  
"Maybe they died. Maybe they fell in a hole. Maybe they got hit by a car..." 
{thoughtful pause} 
"Maybe Cinderella cut them."

I found Berry sobbing in the bathtub because "the German people don't know who Disney Princesses are."

Daddy told her this. 
I will be having stern words with Daddy.

Krewe of Thoth 2011

On Sunday we went to Thoth in New Orleans. It was our one and only Mardi Gras parade this year, and it was everything we wanted.

A picture's worth a thousand words, so here we go....

(Berry had to regularly unload the beads; they weighed her down. Miss Sarah helped.)

(Why did the King Cake Fairy not visit me?  I've been so good!)

Have a festive Fat Tuesday, everyone.....
