I think I've told you before that I typically send my SIL to the Hispanic store to buy our annual pinata because he can speak fluent Spanish and he is Hispanic so they give him a better price. We got this huge Batman pinata for $17 and I'm sure they would have charged me at least $25.
I picked up some candy on Saturday when I was at Sam's Club as well as the rest of the fixins' I needed for chicken chimis. It is such an easy recipe and it feels pretty authentic. Bossy made bean dip and I stepped way outside the box and made a Tres Leches cake. (Really I just stole the recipe from Martha Stewart.) But it turned out pretty delicious and the kids raved about it. I would have eaten a second piece, but I knew how many calories it had in it so I decided to pass.
When my sister and I first started having babies, we had this game of giving the niece or nephew a really annoying gift, like a baseball or something that made irritating noises. When my sister stopped having babies, I took up this fun little game with Bossy. Things like hammers and anything with sirens and flashing lights...all of these make Bossy just roll her eyes at me.

|That's why I married him!|
Fortunately there was no permanent damage done and before long Sport was outside playing with the kids. We had a great time with our combined Fiesta/birthday party.
All that violence...first the pinata, then the boxing gloves...it was almost like the reason Cinco de Mayo was honored in the first place, to celebrate the victory of a war...
or maybe a boxing match.
