Yesterday was El Grito, Mexican Independence Day. El Grito means "the cry." as in the cry for Independence. I decided to start a new tradition and have a little fiesta celebration in honor of Don and my kiddos heritage.
E and I spent all day making preparations for our fiesta. First we used some cheapo brightly colored yarn to make "streamers" and hung them all over the place. Notice the "balloons" that E cut and taped to the mirror. They are all over the place as well.
I decided we needed sombreros to wear, which were made with a stapler and stiff paper. They are totally wonky and lame, but Chubbas had fun wearing his around all day.
For dinner, I made us some yummy burritos.
A fun time indeed.
