It's the celebration of a young girl turning fifteen.
We call her "niece" however she is actually our son's niece. It's just that we have known her for ten years. She is the namesake of our daughter-in-law, "Marcela".
Marcela when she was about 10 years old.
Tomorrow evening we will all go to Mass. Marcela will be "presented" at church by her parents. They will walk her down the aisle and probably be escorted by other relatives, including her older brother and sister. She will look beautiful and we will all be amazed at what a young lady she has become.
We have flown to Mexico to enjoy this special time for
Marcela. She is especially close to our granddaughter, Carmen who is seven years old.
There will be a wonderful party and dance after the Mass.
My camera will be clicking away so that I will have lots of
pictures to share with you very soon.
Chances are we will not get back to our hotel room until
around 2:00 a.m., but the party will still be going on!
Such a celebration!!
