Dia De Los Muertos

Last night we attended our first Dia De Los Muertos celebration and it was amazing! I've always loved the vibrant colors and traditional elements - cut paper banners, fresh marigolds, brightly painted skulls - but have never decorated with them at home. Well, after last night I'm definitely a convert, and am already looking forward to next year's celebration. We munched on some pastries and spicy hot chocolate while the kids colored pictures, decorated their own sugar skulls, and paid tribute to their great-grandparents and grandfather at a stunning altar.
