Cinco de Mayo!

We hosted our second annual family Cinco de Mayo party at our house...a day early. Well, it is tough to host a party on Sunday when you have to go to work the next day! So....happy Cinco de Mayo!!!!!

A Mexican hat for the wall is a must!!!

Spare no expense...streamers for the living room. We only had pink and blue! 

Festive balloons and they were red...NOW, we were using the right colors!

Festive Mexican music...Fiesta (Charlie Parker) and Herb Alpert and his Tijuana Brass!

More Cinco de Mayo music. What says Cinco de Mayo more than El Bingo!

Even Romantic Mexico music in HIGH FIDELITY and two coconut monkeys to great the guests. Their names are Monica and Rob.

Even the ceramic cats got into the holiday spirit...

...and the toothpaste buddies that we have hanging on our bathroom mirror...

...and the giant duck!

We prepared lots of Mexican food.

Sangria! With plastic monkeys and mermaids to sit on the glasses!

Nephew and nieces!

Monica's Dad!

The kiddies plus Monica's brother and sister...the Mustachio Five!

Our brother-in-law waving for the camera. He was on the phone talking to another nephew in Florida.

Monica and I in our Mexican mustaches. It looks like Monica is punching her brother! ha ha!!!

It was a fun but long night. Siesta time for some!

Happy Cinco de Mayo from our casa to yours!!!
