Cinco de Mayo!

Since I've been sick in bed for two days,
I decided I needed an excuse to get up and do something productive... Hmmm...

Cinco de Mayo!

Per-fect-o!


Since we have NO ties to Mexico (other than liking to vacation there!),
we decided to Americanize our celebration... Staker-style!

Here's the spread...


Fajitas, please!

... with all the "Fixin's"!

(Pretty, if nothing else!)


and Chips & Mango Salsa... YUM!

Everyone seemed to LOVE them...
Even the littlest critic!
(Um... these are "Ghost-Goggles", by the way...

Yeah, we don't know either... whatever!)


Despite their technical difficulties...

They all cleaned their plates and dug in for more!
And then even got to pig-out on Dessert!

(That's David, by the way... Kade's friend who ate over...)


Then for FHE, we had a quickie "cultural" lesson about Mexico, the History of Cinco de Mayo, the Mexican flag, etc. The boys colored pictures I printed off the internet of Fiestas and Pinatas.


And we ended the evening with a favorite "Mexican-American" game...


What else? UNO!

The FOOD looks so dang good--In fact, I think I'll copy that and try to make it for dinner tonight. (I should be making dinner right now, in fact, but NO!! I'm blog-stalking!)

Your spread is too pretty to eat... and by the way, didn't you say you can't cook? He he. You are busted cooking something verrrry tasty-looking :-)
p.s. I swear D. looks older in these picks. Must be because he's 1 now!

Every year I want to do something for Cinco de Mayo, but never do! You've inspired me for next year. Looks like lots of fun and the UNO was so clever! =)
