Day of the Dead

 The kids and I decorated our Day of the Dead altar.  All little goodies I won from this very lovely blog.

Banners, pictures, candy, candles, small Day of the Dead trinkets. 

and Pan de Muerto (Bread of the Dead).  
Friends from our block admired our altar, used to scary Halloween decorations...this was very different for most.  

Today, after school, we took a trip to Olvera street.

Admired all the beautiful decorations. 

and toys. 

Enjoyed taquitos with beans. 

Ate yummy Mexican candy.

Learned a whole lot about a most colorful culture.

And fell in love with all the beautiful faces.

Wishing all of your loved ones who have past away lots and lots of peace....

Happy Dia de los Muertos!

Olvera Street in L.A. is awesome! I've been there plenty of times since I used to live there.

Have you been to Plaza Mexico? I think it's in Lynwood? I might be wrong. I go there every year when I visit familia in California.

Our culture is awesome. So many colors, love and passion! =)
