After being postponed due to a minor chickenpox epidemic La Hija de la Muchacha had her quinceañera last night. There was a Mass of Thanksgiving, in the pretty little chapel that belongs to the Hacienda de Itzincab (I can’t remember the rest of the name).
Here she is just arriving from the beauty parlor. That’s Husband looking on.
This is her all dressed up and peeking into the church to see who all is inside.
This is La Muchacha and her inlaws, Doña Julia and Don Wiliam. La Muchacha has on the jewelry that I made her.
Here is La Hija and her escorts during one of the traditional dances. The boys are on their knees and she goes to them one by one and dances with each one.
It was a nice party but like many parties here didn´t even get going until after 11pm. There was a toast by La Hija´s godparents and then a traditional waltz. She danced with all her male relatives and then any young man who wanted to got to dance with her. It was all very pretty.
We left after the dance, so La Muchacha made sure that we had a plate of food to take home, the cena (dinner) probably got served at midnight and who knows when the party finally broke up.
Overall, I think it was a lovely party and I wish that I had taken more photos.
