dear grandma and paw

Dear Grandma and Paw,

Your care package arrived today.  I was most excited about the red beans (you know I like it better than pasta or polenta), but Mommy made me taste the King Cake.  Even though it was a couple of days past its "sell by" date (!), it was yummy in my tummy -- much better than the one Mommy made. I did not like the icing, but I did find the baby in the cake.  I wanted to eat King Cake for dinner, but Dad made me eat frittata instead.

Thank you very much and I'll be thinking of you when I eat my red beans and rice this weekend.  It's Daddy's birthday, and we are planning to make cupcakes with Reese's Pieces together.

Hugs and Kisses!

Your Baby Big Girl M


  1. Yum! My mom is sending me a package with some Community coffee so maybe I'll convince her to send a king cake too! Where in LA are you from? I grew up in Metairie, right outside of NO

  2. care packages are the best!

  3. Wow, the King Cake's box even looks delicious! What a sweet thank you note!

  4. King Cake! Yum. My step dad who lives in the South brought me 4 boxes of Cafe Du Monde Beignet mix last time he was here. So good.

  5. Happy Birthday RD! Glad that the cake arrived and you all were able to enjoy it. The little one told me Red Beans and Rice is her favorite Louisiana food ... Go Girl!
