Celia's "girls"...think Bridesmaids...and there were 7 guys also and the main guy she danced with...not sure what the correlation was. They were getting ready to do their dance...very much mimicked a wedding.
I don't have much time to post now, but wanted to get these pix up for your viewing pleasure.
We went to Celia's "cotillion" last night. Not sure what they call it in Mexico exactly...I know there is a name for it...Who's Celia you ask? yeah, I didn't know till yesterday either.
David has two guys on his crew, Jose and Bucho...they are brothers. Celia is their niece. In their tradition, people in the family donate to a girl's coming of age party...Jose bought her dress...what a nice uncle...not sure what Bucho donated but since they are family and they helped throw the party, they got to invite whoever they wanted...and they asked David and his family (hey, that's us!!) if we would come!!
I admit it, I was very nervous and it didn't let up once we got there...it was all in Spanish and we were definitely, definitely the minority. But it was so neat to see that they still hold to some traditions in their culture.
I could totally go on and on...but I just got David and the 4 big kids out the door (whew!!) and now I'm packing for a day of swimming with Beck and then Momma and Poppa are taking Tom, Beck and her family and me and what's left of my family to OUTBACK tonight. In honor of my brother in law, Scott's 35th birthday, which is tomorrow.
Sorry for the scatterbrained post...be back later, taters! LY
