Mila and her float
      Mila is my 7 year old granddaughter who loves, loves, loves giraffes and Star Wars. Since we celebrate Mardi Gras here in New Orleans, Louisiana she needed to make a float for a school project. Of course she ask me to help her.  Her daddy(my son) and her came up with the idea of putting her two likes together. so this is what they came up with.  Her daddy found all of the images and she colored them and I cut them all out for her and helped build her float.  Here is what it looks like

What do you think?  I think it is unique. I am sure her teacher and classmates will love it

Have a great day


  1. I think it was a fantastic idea, and love that it was a family effort - this young lady not only has something unique & pretty to have for her project, but the love of her Dad & Gran to make it happen. It's darling, and easy to see she is very proud (justly so) of her marvelous creation. Please tell her Good JOB! Hope she gets an A+ from the teacher too! TFS
