Brazilian Birthday Success!

We survived our first Brazilian birthday.  We met all of L’s classmates. They understood my Portuguese.  It was everything she wanted:  blue, cupcakes that she got to decorate, chocolate covered almonds, coconut brigadeiro (with real chocolate sprinkles that might have taken a tumble in route to the party), and pão de queijo.   L was so excited she didn’t even eat her cupcake, but she talked a lot about it.

I did learn that apparently few kids here drink “leito puro” (pure milk).  I thought their teacher was referring to them drinking powdered milk.  Nope. None of the kids, other than L, wanted to touch the milk since it wasn’t mixed with chocolate.

Now to prep for our next visitor. Let the planning begin!

  1. Everything looks so cute 🙂 The pan de queso (yes, that’s what we call it at our house) looks yummy – you wouldn’t believe how often we have that since you introduced us last summer. C loves it!! Miss you!! Let’s skype again soon – maybe this weekend? And give L a b-day hug from all of us!

  2. I bet she had a great time! I noticed you put whistles in the goodies bags . . . ummm . . . aren’t you trying to make friends with the other parents? lol I love the little playdough packets, looks you’re settling into your SAHM role quite well. 🙂

    • Ah whistles are nothing here! I put in all the play dough and then realized that parents might not know what I was sending home and had to insert a little note in fear the kids would break into them thinking they were some kind of sweet.
