each the objects at the top included pineapples, rice, soda, and a live chicken and two bucking bulls covered in candy with fiery horns weaving through the crowd. Craziness.
We finished at the Cotocollao center with mass and lunch and moved to the downtown location for dinner, dancing, and birthday cake. It was the most fun I've had here so far and was a great opportunity to get to know some of the families a little better and spend some quality time with the kids.

Halloween was a lot of fun to spend with the kids at the center. In my classes, we made masks, learned Halloween words, went trick or treating around the center, painted faces and finished up with a dance party (of course). The little girls still put me to shame with their moves. You think after spending several years around latinos that I would have pick up a thing or two, but no... I'm still waiting.
We celebrated Thanksgiving the Sunday after with Madre Cindy's delicious food. Green bean casserole, stuffing, glazed carrots, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, gravy, pecan pie, apple pie, pumpkin pie and of course, turkey.. we missed out on none of the trimmings of the typical feast.
