Cascarones (Confetti Eggs)

This Easter we had our traditional easter egg fight.  It is a mexican custom to crack colorful confetti eggs on unsuspected heads. But be careful whose head you crack because paybacks can be hell.  We had a wonderful time with family and friends.  I would estimate we had about 25-30 dozen confetti eggs.  Thanks to Mother Nature for supplying lots of wind that day.  We did not have to rake up all that confetti.


The St. Ambrose Bazaar was a success.  I sold all the Easter baskets and some of the stepping stones.  Just had one Texas Stepping Stone left.  I decided to donate it to a silent auction for Our Lady of Guadalupe School.  Last night I received a call from someone who saw the Texas Step Stone at the bazaar.  This weekend I will be busy making two more Texas stones.  I LOVE TEXAS!
