Fasching / Carnival 2011

I know, it's been a while since I've written here (or anywhere for that matter). I just don't seem to have the blogging bug that I used to (I still miss JS!).

It's now Ash Wednesday and carnival season is once again over. This year I didn't participate much... one evening event and the parade yesterday. For a change we had PERFECT weather for the parade... blue skies, comfortable temperatures, no wind! Normally it snows and we freeze to death while standing around, but this year Ash Wednesday is later in the year then usual, March instead of February, and that helps. Unfortunately I had a slight cold (*snif* *hatchee*) which spoiled some of the fun. Anyway, here are a few pictures for your entertainment! lol

This is little Tamara with me (in the blue as an Egyptian) and my daughter, Regina....

and with Emely...

The fun part is seeing all the fantastic costumes, like these walking ice cream cones..

or these "fire birds"...

I have vacation all this week and I'm using it to relax, load up my battery, and get some stuff done like doc appointments setup, etc. I've been doing some reading plus lots of this 'n' that. I really needed this time off... *sigh*



  1. The day looks so pleasant. You can't beat warm sunshine. Glad it all turned out so nice.

  2. Love the photos Dorrie. You have a beautiful family! Enjoy the rest of your week.
