Dia de los Muertos and we thought it would be a wonderful idea to make a special day where we honor our ancestors and celebrate their lives. Our daughter learned about Dia de los Muertos in her Spanish class and talked non-stop about it. She brought home coloring pages and skull masks she made in school. So yesterday, we gathered photos and memorabilia of our family and beloved pets and created our own Dia de los Muertos la ofrenda that you see above. In this way we honor our family and let them know that they are with us in thought and spirit. (click on the picture for a bigger view)

Whether your family is near or far, take a moment to send them good thoughts today and light a candle for them. You will be glad that you did. Thanks for stopping by and for listening!
