Before we started to eat I thought it would be good for us to discuss why people celebrate Cinco de Mayo and Aiden said, "I already know." So, after I asked him to share with us what he knew, he said, "It's to celebrate when the Mexican's beat the French during the French invasion." He's pretty smart.
|My dinner (before I went back for more.... that tempeh was delicious!!!)|
We started with sugar cookies and spread a little frosting around the edges. Then, we rolled the frosted edges in rainbow colored candy sprinkles. After that, we put a dab of frosting in the middle, put some sprinkles on it then, stuck a gum drop on top.
So that is how we celebrated Cinco de Mayo at our house. Did you do anything special to celebrate?

UPDATE: Last week I shared Katie's travels to Scotland and I forgot to add a picture (a nice one of a house by the lake). I've added it in now, if you'd like to see it, here it is.
