|The Fairy Piñata!|
This week is my 7th birthday so I wanted to make a "Birthday Challenge" and since Books for Walls Project is about telling our stories I want to ask all of you readers about your birthday memories and traditions --to tell me a story about birthdays!!
The Mom and I will tell you first about one of our traditions!
The fairy piñata (see the picture!) that we made many years ago --usually piñatas get smashed to bits, but the fairy is special, she is a pull string piñata and so we fill it up and then get to reuse it over and over! We made her 6 years ago for The Big Sister's 5th birthday which also happened to be our first Mice and Beans Birthday party.
The Big Sister found the book Mice and Beans by Pam Munoz Ryan which is about a grandmother getting ready for her granddaughter's birthday. Thanks to the wonderful story one of our birthday party traditions is to serve rice, beans, fresh cilantro-corn salsa and tortillas --no matter how many people come to the party there is always enough! This year the Little Sister is celebrating her 7th birthday, just like the little girl in the story. There is nothing like a Mice and Beans Birthday!
In the comments below tell us stories about birthdays, traditions, memories... have fun, tell the Little Sister and the Books for Walls Project Readers a story!
