Reasons to Celebrate!

Carrumba!  Today is Cinco de Mayo, and that means PARTY!  Do you know why?  
  It's not Mexican Independence Day (that one happens to fall on my daughter's birthday- September 16th), but this day- May 5th-  commemorates the Mexican army's 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (1861-1867).
  Now, I'm not a crazy history buff, but this one counts, because it's so popular everywhere you go in the Great State!  Even Mexico doesn't celebrate it like Texas does!  (But then, isn't Texas synonymous with PARTY?)
With a large Mexican-American population, Cinco de Mayo has evolved into a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage with traditions that include parades, mariachi music performances, street festivals, and of course FOOD!
  Grab some maracas, put on that big ole' floppy sombrero, and add a couple of these cute photo props from Paper and Cake, and you've got the party started!
 Just save a Margarita for me!
