I found these Mardi Gras beads while cleaning out some boxes, and Hannah has seized them as her new favorite accessories. I got them when I was on a business trip to New Orleans (I bought them, I didn’t do anything crazy for them, in case you were wondering). One string has alligators and the other has ducks wearing sunglasses. I am having bad luck lately getting the picture snapped in time to catch Hannah’s smiles, but even though she looks subdued in the picture above, I can assure you she is having a good time. Really. She wore the necklaces on our walk this afternoon, but I didn’t let her wear them to bed. A girl needs limits.
