Sao Joao (San Juan)

This is one of Brasil's most celebrated holidays.  its pretty big around here. apparently instead of just celebrating it on the actual day of the holiday, they celebrate all month long.  there are san juan parties every week.  we've been to one and it was almost more than we could handle. our cute maid, Rosie, let us borrow one of her daughters old san juan dresses, so we dressed ave up, painted on some freckles, and put her hair in some piggys, just like she told us to. all the dresses look pretty much just like this, i know, not very cute at all.  ave only thought she was the coolest thing since mac-and-cheese in that dress. i won't beg to differ.  but seriously, thank goodness this month is almost over, i've seen enough plaid dresses and shirts to last me the rest of my life.

enjoy some pictures of our little sao juao girl.. buck teeth and all

why hello! I too am a blog stalker so I thought since you broke the ice I'd leave a comment too. Ave is such a cute little girl and meag is right, she makes that horrid dress work.

Looks like you guys are really enjoying your time in Brazil.

haha how cute is she?!?! holy cow I love her dress for this occasion, so fun. And I had to laugh at the pictures below of all of you sleeping in funny positions. I hope you aren't missing home TOO bad, although I'm sure you are. What an experience!
