A 4th birthday, Carnevale and cleaning up our diet

9

Felicity celebrated her 4th birthday on Sunday with a unicorn party. She had been looking forward to the party for months. We reserved an event hall that had bouncy houses and entertainers to keep the kids busy. The event hall prepared all the food and decorations so all we had to do was show up with the cake. When we left she asked when her birthday “2” was going to happen.

The rest of the weekend we celebrated the Italian holiday of Carnveale. Children dress up in costumes and parade around town throwing confetti. Raffi refused to put on a costume but Felicity dressed as Elsa. On Tuesday we celebrated Martedi Grasso (Fat Tuesday) at my sister-in-law’s with the traditional lunch of lasagne and desserts.

Following Fat Tuesday, Umberto and I decided to clean up our diets. We both feel like we’ve been indulging a little too much. Ash Wednesday and Lent are the traditional Catholic period of dieting so there is no better time to start. We’re going to cut down on pasta, bread, carbs and red meat.

Have a great Wednesday!
