May 3rd was the first birthday of our "nieta", Elizabeth Saraí Canil Gonzalez!
So, we needed a big party! Right?
|Elizabeth Saraí "La princesita"|
Sandi and I were leaving for our daughter Felicita's college graduation in the USA May 2nd,
so we moved the party up to May 1st, a holiday here in Guatemala.
|Mamá e hija|
Elizabeth is the daughter of Erika Canil Gonzalez, one of our girls in La Luz Brilla.
We are very close with the entire family, Erika is the oldest of 5 siblings, and her brother Luis is living with us. They are like family with us and Elizabeth is just like our nieta. She is truly a great blessing and gift from God for us.
|Her first piñata!|
Every birthday here needs a piñata!
Elizabeth's first time hitting a piñata, and later when others had their turn, she became very upset that they were hurting the bunny!
|Lot's of candy|
|One candle & chocolate cake!|
We had to have chocolate cake after eating chuchitos and tostadas!
|With her tia & tios, Sonia, Oscar, Luis & David|
It was the first time in a very long time we were able to have all 5 siblings together!
Great day and just the first of many more, Lord willing.
