Springtime in Mexico

Springtime in Mexico....well, where do I start? I will blog over the next several days about our Spring 2012 here in Reynosa, Mexico.

I will start with Josie's Quinceanera. First, I will say that planning a quinceanera is not for the weak!! This was a huge task, but in the end, very well worth it!!
There was dress fittings, cake ordering, ribbon buying, invitation making, dress fittings, food planning, house cleaning, dress fittings, ring sizing, yard cleaning, tank moving, last minute chambelan change, and did I mention dress fittings.....

All of this work and planning, culminated in a beautiful ceremony, celebrating our daughter's move from girlhood to womanhood. Since pictures are worth a thousand words, I will simply post some pictures from this special time in our lives.
