Dia de los Muertos y Vivos…

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

We built this ofrenda all week and now it is finally finished.  Last night we stayed up until midnight, waiting for the dead to make their return: Dad, May, abuelos, abuelita, bisabuelos, Linda, Vicky, tio Arturo, and our huge gold fish who Otramama started calling “Petey” (as in Pedro)…until the day he finally died.  On their ofrendas we put mole, arroz, frijoles, tortillas, chile, dulces, pan de muerto, tequilla, Jarritos, agua, chocolate… we even left out a menu for Spires just in case Dad or Arturo wanted to order something that we had forgotten.  We will always remember you… por vida!
