Death to the piņata!!

My son’s best friend Diego just had a birthday the other day…. He turned the big 4!!  Ah, I remember those early years….. Who am I kidding… I have trouble remembering what I had for lunch (that’s one of the reasons I keep this blog).


Party Time 


But what is a birthday without a birthday party?  And in our circles… that also means piñata!!  


Beat it!!


Oh yes… what evil things these piñatas must have done to us many years ago.  For now they are the target of all our Hispanic celebrations.  We teach our kids that these piñatas must be beaten.  Beaten good!!  …for the terrible things that they did to us so long ago…




And if you beat them hard enough, you will be rewarded.  J CANDY!!  That is better than gold to children….


Much fun was had by all!  Many thanks to Diego (Diego Jose’s Dad) and Maria Jose for inviting our family.  They are beautiful people, and a blessing to us.
