I firmly believe that all pinatas should be larger than the birthday girl.

Rockin’ the white socks with my favorite puppy, Zorro.

Blazing the frontier of fashion in my socks and sandals…

And if any of y’all submit this to Awkward Family Photos, I’m shutting the blog down.

Have a nice day.

  7. Let me get this straight…you had a Santa pinata?? Don’t you think beating Santa with a stick until he explodes might just put you on the naughty list??

    But you were a cute kid…maybe that saved you.

We went to church till midnight and then ate tamales and went home to wake up early to the traditional American Christmas feast! Your mom is an awesome cook! That bownie pie is still a fond memory!

  13. P. S. this is Yvonne
