In Mexico, and other Latin American countries I believe, there is a special coming of age celebration when a girl turns 15. It’s called a “Quinceanera” and recently we were able to celebrate with our good friend Maria at her quinceanera. The celebration involves a mass at church with a special meal and cake afterwards. Hizee was absolutely thrilled to celebrate with Maria and to present her with her gift. Here is a collage of Maria’s quinceanera.
