some lovely friends do new orleans and ...

***
YES! THE METAPHORSBWITHU HOME WAS FILLED WITH FUN AND FRIENDS FOR FOUR NIGHTS AND THREE DAYS AS MIKE, EILEEN AND THE KIDS DROVE TO NEW ORLEANS TO VISIT

I haven’t had so much fun since my nieces and nephews were little.

The last time tniassaint and macabredelight were here, the baby was 15 months old and her brother was just 6! How they have grown!

I cooked a few Louisiana specialties and showed E and M how to make peanut butter fudge and Chicken Gumbo so we only had to eat out once. We played baseball at the park, took a ferry ride to the French Quarter, ate beignets and drank café au lait at Café du Monde, took the kids to the Celebration in the Oaks at City park and just had a wonderful time.

Oh, and I wrote a letter to Papa Noel to let him know they were coming and he didn’t disappoint, leaving the kids lots of goodies and toys and taking care of E and M (and me too as I just found out 2 days after they left).

Here are the first batch of pics:

Wasn’t that fun? Cute, huh!

Merry Christmas to all!

Yay!!! Awesome pictures. I had such a great time visiting you. The kids did too and they were sad to leave. *hugs*

I know I had the most fun of all.

Hey, E! You left a pound of butter for those cookies we didn't have time to make in my refrigerator, so you'd better come back soon to get it. You KNOW how much I use butter in my cooking.

I'll keep a light in the window for ya!

I love the faces of the guy and two girls watching the balloon man. What a fun day.
