Yesterday was Fasnacht Day! I LOVE Fasnacht Day! There is a bakery around here that makes the most amazing fasnachts for Fasnacht Day! What’s a fasnacht? It’s a donut – but in PA Dutch German tradition all the women would have to use up their lard and flour, etc the day before lent so it wouldn’t go bad – at least that’s the way it was explained to me as a kid. I just remember loving the donuts!
So yesterday was Drew’s first official experience of Fasnacht Day – and BOY did he ENJOY it!!! Here are the pictures to prove it!
Here he is signing MORE!! And he was doing it quite emphatically! I think he really likes donuts! He used to have an issue with icing – didn’t like the feel of it – I think he’s gotten over that ! It was a fun morning. I like the little traditions we keep.
