I planned my menu mentally (who has time to write things down?) and couldn't wait for the fiesta to begin. The only problem was that I never really checked the calendar to see when Cinco de Mayo really was. I knew it was the 5th (duh) but I have this handicap lately. I only go by days of the week. I know what day I have things, but I never can tell you the actual date. For example, Tuesday is Ethan's doctor visit; Wednesday I am babysitting; etc. This makes life easy to understand and I live week by week. Somehow I got all messed up and didn't know it Cinco de Mayo until halfway in the middle of the day. I tried to figure out a way to make it all work, but it was FHE and none of the kids wanted to substitute my fiesta for what we already had planned (major party poopers were Ethan who was in charge of treats and Mitch who was in charge of the game--Ike who was in charge of the lesson was more than willing to give up his part for some Mexican history, but I wouldn't let him). So, as most mothers have learned to do, I just reshuffled my brain and celebrated a day later. Heck, it's not like it was Christmas!
This tasty dish was cinnamon crisps with fruit salsa. We had fajitas for the actual entree, but they weren't as pretty to look at.
Here is Noelle with the most awesome white girl 'fro, Ethan, and Mitch who just loved to play on the el deslizadero. Thanks to Dora the Explorer for our Spanish words.And Isaac cannot go a day without playing football. But on this Seis de Mayo, it was futbol. They actually have a league and everything. Thank you to Wikepedia for teaching me about the Mexican Futbol league.
And that thar is the evidence of how I can be a fun mom too. I'm just counting down now until the next random holiday to further hone my fun mom skills. Any suggestions?
