Today I'm sharing a photo of my Princess taken 3 years ago... Wow, Time sure goes by fast! Renata has always loved the written word (like me!) and ever since she realized what pencils, pens, markers, etc. are used for, she usually has one - or more - nearby and/or using them as this photo shows:
It seems like I took this phot just yesterday and at the same time it feels like eons ago... my girly girl is growing way TOO fast...
I'm totally proud of my beautiful Princess! She is my inspiration and even though life as a single mother is hard most of the time, I would never not want to have the pleasure of being Renata's mother! I'm Thankful for my daughter :)
This is my first time participating in this fun Meme, I can't wait to do it more often! This is a holiday weekend for us so I'm home and therefore able to write a post on a Monday :) Here is my entry:
1. I wish I had more time to... READ, RELAX, DO NOTHING!
2. What is your favorite kind of soup? CLAM CHOWDER
3. Where will you eat Thanksgiving dinner? WE DO NOT CELEBRATE HERE :(
4. What is your favorite time of day? EARLY IN THE MORNING, BEFORE THE DAY STARTS
5. Did you start Christmas shopping yet? NOPE, I ONLY HAVE A FEW STOCKING STUFFERS BUT THAT'S ABOUT IT :(
Today is the anniversary of the beginning of the Mexican Revolution and every year there is a great 3 hr. long parade that I've watched yearly - since Renata was a baby - from the same spot/street, and today it was no different :)
My niece and nephew came along to watch it with us and later on we joined my brother, his fiance and their baby. Here are some photos taken this morning:
Green Mexican Shawls number
Pom poms could not be skipped :)
It is a tradition for the charros to close to parade and this year it was no exception, here is my handsome cousin all dressed up.
And in Renata's book there is no better way to end a holiday parade than with cotton candy!!! Have a happy Sunday and a great week ~
A busy, crafty night; working on goodies for Sunday and hopefully - soon - also for the Saturday Farmer's Market in town. More on that over at my crafty blog, on the side panel of this blog you'll find the link. TG tomorrow is Friday!
Happy to be back joining Lisa Renata - what a nice name :) with my fav photos this week.
As most of you probably know, on Wednesday it was Dia de Muertos and - like we do every year - we went to the cemetery.
Here is a photo of my Princess and mom eating tamales and drinking atole made by my mom - YUM! There are no people around because it was early, however you can see by Renata's face that the sun is already too bright - and it was hot too!
By 10am it was packed and couldn't get closer to take a better photo of the Marichi band that played during Mass - the singer had a lovely voice and the homily was just beautiful. A beautiful day spent with my those I love the most!
1. In November, I most look forward to PUMPKIN PIE!
2. Good thing (here) is not available year long... phew!
3. It's right there, in the top five desserts.
4. Self-control gives me peace of mind.
5. Water for chocolate :)
6. Don't bite more than you can chew, is what my grandmother used to say!
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to some crafting, tomorrow my plans include cleaning, laundry, cooking and hopefully more crafting and Sunday, I want to SELL a lot at the La Cruz Market!
