Our little Babe's second birthday was in the middle of November. Normally a second birthday does not warrant a big celebration outside of the family since the little one is not that aware of the big event. However, the siblings that are 5, 7 and 9 were hoping for a bigger event, especially since it was her first celebration as part of our family. We invited a few of her friends and had a celebration in the garden, including a piñata. Mama-made piñatas are synonymous with birthday parties at our home, and I enjoy coming up with a new creation each time. The simple joy that one can create with some newspaper, glue and some crêpe-paper is amazing.
A rainbow fish was my first creation for the Babe, but two-year olds are not keen on hitting a piñata, so the older kids took charge of opening it to release the treasure.
Een regenboog vis was mijn eerste creatie voor de Babe, maar twee-jarigen zijn niet enthousiast over het slaan van een piñata., dus de oudere kinderen namen de leiding in het te openen om de schat vrij te geven.
