Below is a picture of Tripp as First Knight on the 2005 Mardi Gras court with his beautiful and dear friend, the First Lady in Waiting.
We didn't go down to Mobile for the Mardi Gras festivities this year. We did, however, decorate our house for carnival. We were in the spirit of things I guess.
Tripp knew that we were celebrating our own mini Mardi Gras with just the two of us up here in Birmingham. I came home from work the other day to find Judd grinning from ear to ear.
He said we received a surprise in the mail. I had no idea what it could have been. We weren't expecting anything.
Tripp doesn't know this but I had almost ordered one a few weeks ago because I was craving king cake. He somehow must have known just what I needed. :)
Thanks Tripp!!!! You made our Mardi Gras fun and delicious! The only thing that would have made it better was sharing it with you.
Judd hid the baby Jesus for me twice. He found it the first time and had to re-hide it for me. Ha. What a sweetheart. :)
Happy Mardi Gras and Happy Fat Tuesday!!!!!!
It's great to have special friends isn't it?
You can watch a video about the Atlanta Bread Company's king cakes by clicking HERE. We prefer the cakes with cream cheese filling and no raisens.
To order a king cake online click HERE. I think that the Mobile branch is the only one that sells king cakes but they ship them all year long.
