Dia de los muertos

We've had a few trick-or-treaters at the door tonight.  So cute!  A little Harry Potter, 2 pint-sized Astronauts (twins),  a Zombie Princess, a stuffed dog, and of course a few skeletons.   We bought enough candy for 200+ kids, because we're used to heavier traffic.  Looks like lots of leftovers!

As much as I like our Halloween traditions, Day of the dead, celebrated November 1 and November 2 all over Mexico, looks like more fun.  Making offerings and celebrating the lives of those who have died and we miss, sharing a drink or two and reminiscing.....
