It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad March


I love a reason to celebrate and March is loaded with them.  We got together and celebrated Mustache March, March Basketball Madness, Mardi Gras, St. Patricks and Pi day all in one giant, yellow, purple and green Family Night.                      

                                      Addison grew a "real" mustache for this special occasion!



Mardi Gras inspired food....Jambalya, Salad, rolls----(rice and weinies for Monson)



After a short Gospel discussion on having good Judgment, we................Drew mustaches on everyone's upper lip and laughed a lot!

(Any meal is better with everyone sporting a hairy upper lip!)



Filled out the Basketball brackets with our predictions on who is going to win the College Championship this year....(my Dad has BYU going all the way.........of course.)


Wrote why we are the Luckiest on the Chalk board door....this earned you  mardi gras necklaces.


Shot baskets......Wayne did the best--much to Monson's chagrin.



Decorated Masks




Did our own team picks...........so we could compete in a........
 a crazy scavenger photo shoot....with masks and mustaches of course.

We had a 45 minute time limit and 7 pics that needed to be taken.....

Pic at the Park, playing on the equipment

Pic at a grocery store with the carts

Pic at Arctic Circle eating courtesy cones

Pic with a Stranger----girl scouts are pretty strange!










Pic with something ST. Pat-ish...we found Irish Spring at Walgreens....and a green toad.

Pic with Friends.....yeah for the Belnaps....they were shocked and surprised.

Pic on 5th and 5th waving at cars..
We made it back home in record time......We Sham-rocked it!

Dessert:    King Cake with a baby hidden in it..............and Banana Cream Pie......for Pi day-- 3.14

It made it all worth it when I put Laila to bed and asked her how she liked family night?  She said, "It was fun.  I loved it and I love you so, so much. If I was a boy I would marry you!"  (High Praise.)
