The Valentine's decorations have come down and the Mardi Gras decorations have gone up-well, all we have right now is garland, but it's up! I plan on making a trip to the party store soon to see if they have anything to add to my collection.
Catholic Icing blog/Facebook just posted a cool "Countdown to Lent" calendar. Please check out her blog for many wonderful ideas. In the meantime, I am trying to prep some Mardi Gras crafts for my kids. I'll be sharing those here as we complete them.
