Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

I took a break from spending every free moment cataloging my knitting projects, plans, and yarn over at Ravelry to go to a Cinco de Mayo party at church. You’d be surprised at how well a bunch of Anglo Midwestern churchgoers can celebrate such a day. Granted, there was no tequila or Mexican cerveza, but dude. There were cupcakes.

Thanks to Mariko, I am always making cupcakes these days. Ever since she recommended the Cake Doctor’s cupcake book, I find a reason to make a batch at least once a month. These are Brooklyn Blackout Cupcake (sans chocolate filling) with Buttercream Frosting. Festive, no?

And speaking of festive:

Tiny Dancer sports his first sombrero.

Tiny Dancer prepares to swing at his first pinata.

And, clearly, I am not above inflicting matchiness on others. Though I must admit it’s cuter on 2 year-old twins than on a pair of 19 year-old cousins.

Watching the pinata-swinging.
Hope your Cinco de Mayo was festive, too. Ole!

Now back to Ravelry….

  4. Ok first, isn’t Ravelry just the bomb? And second, isn’t the Cake Doctor just the bomb #2? I’m with you, I’ve been spending WAY too much time on Ravelry!!!

  5. just caught up on your posts…i love all the sewing and envy your skill. i also love seeing your boys, i ope mine match yours in cuteness when they reach two…i could just squeeze and kiss them…oh, wait, i’ll do that to my own. smiles.

  6. Oh man, your boys are SO CUTE! If you ever get tired of having two of them, I’d be happy to take one off your hands.
