Making a Pinata

The other day Jackson was asking if he could buy a pinata. So, I being not very smart, told him that we didn't need to buy one because I knew how to make one. Well I finally gave in two days ago and started making the pinata by using flour and water to paper mache it. After putting the first strip of paper over the balloon Jackson said that it didn't seem that fun anymore and went into the house. Katie came over a while later and found me in the backyard by myself looking like this.

We let it dry over night and yesterday the boys and I painted it to look like Daffy Duck. It should have finished drying by now and I am headed back over there to break it open. I will post some pictures of how it turned out later. In conclusion we should just all buy pinatas.

First of all you looks so pretty! You are making that face that reminds me of that little 4th of July party many years ago where you nearly passed out. Anyways, the pinata takes me back to 3rd grade! You are very talented!

I am making the same face because blowing out a tiki torch is just as difficult.

I should have been there to help you. I learned paper mache in an 8th grade art class. I am impressed you tried.

Hi Ashley, its Brandi (Peterson) Sessions. I haven't talked to you in forever and I was emailed your blog in the most round about way possible. You look so pretty and sound like you are doing great. (and of course still very funny) I repeated the story about your internet connection at dinner tonight...
