Chicagoland and Carnival are not usually associated! There are no parades with elaborate floats nor bead throwing...you'd freeze the unmentionables if you sat out on our curbsides at this time of the year!!!!!!!!!! There are no days off of school to recover from the late nights of partying...not really many parties even! We do try our best to bring on the holiday though.The Paczki (poonch-key) are bought from the local Polish bakery and waiting to be served for dessert. We have a favorite decadent dinner planned. The girls have been debating their Lenten sacrifices...Julia's seems possible as she plans to give up pop/soda but Mari has set a very high bar by declaring that she intends to stop 'back sassing' her parents! We even did up special shirts for school this year!! So here is Julia all beaded up and heading off to let the good times roll....well not so much....since it's just a normal school day. Hey, it's the thought that counts, isn't it?
