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
