The Decapitation

The piñata is a brightly-coloured paper container filled with sweets and/or toys. It is generally suspended on a rope from a tree branch or ceiling and is used during celebrations. A succession of blindfolded, stick-wielding children try to break the piñata in order to collect the sweets (traditionally fruit, such as sugarcane) and/or toys inside of it. It has been used for hundreds of years to celebrate special occasions such as birthdays and Christmas. (Wikipedia)

Pinata time!! Jeffrey was successful in decapitating the horse and unleashing the candy on Sunday, Sept. 9.

OK, very cool! Now the video is there. That was fun to do that! Maybe we'll do one for Zach's birthday? We'll see.
