Cinco de MELo

This year, instead of Cinco de Mayo, we’re celebrating Cinco de MELo in honor of Mel and her upcoming birth-giving. Some friends of ours made a very pregnant-looking piñata. I think it looks a lot like her.

I’m told that they were actually going to put a real picture of my wife’s face on the pinata, but then the bashing-with-a-stick part would have been a little bit too real or something.

We let all the kids take a turn swinging at the piñata first, then gave Mel the honor of finishing it off.

The piñata was full of candy, but I was secretly hoping it would have a little doll in it, maybe covered in goo so that it would be a realistic birth giving ceremony. Oh well. Also: SMARTIES!

Happy Cinco de MELo!!!

So what did you do for Cinco de Mayo?
