This is what we did for Our Lady of Guadalupe this year.
Ever since Alice posted this Lady of Guadalupe Tea we have had this wonderful tea. It is the other favourite tea that our children look forward too.
In fact we have done quite a few of Alice's tea as we love to incorporate food into many of our celebrations.
We usually do some other activities and read this book
but we did nothing other than the food and when I suggested that perhaps we could skip it this year, there were the stirrings of a mutiny, so we put it together and enjoyed it as we usually do.
So here is the Tea as set out and what the items represent.
We also had dinner with this and had the traditional...in our family at least Beef Burritos.
For a more detailed explanation of the Tea see the link above to Alice's blog.A little of everything
