June and a Mordida

Yesterday, while we welcomed the arrival of June 1 (AH!), we also welcomed the arrival of Leeah's birthday (WOO!).

At NPH Guatemala, there are a lot of birthday traditions, and most of them are actually less-than-pleasant for the birthday-er, but pretty entertaining for the audience. Here's one example:

The mordida. After you blow out the candles on your cake, and before you're actually allowed to eat it, you have to let everyone else pick up the cake and smash it into your face. It's tradition, so you're not getting out of it, but really, whose idea was this?

So here is Leeah, face first in a delicious, homemade carrot cake with homemade cream cheese icing -- all prepared by Katie, our house´s resident baker haha. Yum!
