Yes, time flies and it's time again to celebrate Hendick's birthday.
This year's party was much more low key than last year's. This year just a few families were invited over for a lunch of chicken noodle soup and coke floats with strawberry ice cream.
All the kids took a whack at the piñata, even little Elkin.
Fernando takes his turn with gusto.
Nic captures Hendrick's face as the piñata flies off the line to shatter on the ground.
"Ya queremos pastel", "We want cake", people began to chant as the kids cleaned up every last piece of candy from the piñata.
Frosting face: it never gets old.
Elkin was so determined to eat his cake but he needed his hands to steady himself against the table.
As typical, a prayer session is initiated. Everyone prayed out loud, their voices gradually growing louder as tears began to stream down their faces. Even Hendrick was pumping his fists in fervor.
Fernando cannot believe his mom is telling him to get off of Hendrick's car, even though he got the same car for Christmas just three days before. He also somehow managed to get blue frosting not only on his cheek but also the shoulder of his shirt.
The boys outside on their cars. I told them they are the champions and Hendrick declared that only he was the champion. Classic first child syndrome.
