Happy Cinco de Mayo


We had a fun pre cinco de mayo party with the Hodgkinson cousins.


We started out by making "chili peppers" by using tootsie rolls, pretzels, and candy melts.



Aren't they cute?


Next we made maracas using easter eggs, spoons, tape, stickers, and cheerios. 


Then we had a parade shaking our new maracas!


After lunch we had "almuerzo" (lunch) -- quesadillas, rice, and fruit.  
And Gracie and Heather had to leave after lunch so they missed the pinata.  We missed you!



Check out that pinata!  Yes, I made that by myself!!




Look at that face!  That is some serious concentration! 



Candy!



At the end of the party they each got to take home their own "mini-pinata!"


That night we had a fiesta!
