We had a wonderful time at the Dia de Los Muertos celebration,as you can see above and below,my great-nephew Christopher made some new friends!

Lots of family came out for the day and even my brother was feeling well enough to join us.
The altar we did for our family turned out beautifully and we recieved alot of compliments on it.

Below my husband Jim's photos I placed one of his favorite shirts,(he was a big Beatles fan),and some of the heart shaped rocks that he had found and given to me. There is also a chain full of charms that I had made for him over the years and which he always wore.
It was a good day for us and plans are already being made for next year!
Happy Halloween! Have fun and be safe.

It's that time of year again,the days are getting shorter,the light is changing.
Time to decorate for the autumn festivities!
Shadow,(the cat who owns us),is of course a purr-fect Halloween decoration,although,I'm sure she feels that she is just plain perfect.
My family will once again be setting up a family altar at the Dia De Los Muertos celebration at the San Luis Rey Mission in Oceanside.
The date this year is Sunday October 30th,so come by and see us if you can.

Life has been even more stressful the last couple of weeks.There had been a lump found in my mom's breast and she had the biopsy done and of course we waited and worried. Having lost my husband and father this last year to cancer and dealing with my brother fighting liver cancer and hoping to get a transplant,well as you can imagine it's been alot to go thru. I was not ready to have my mom also deal with cancer,and the thought of losing her anytime soon is just terrifying for me. Well,this time the fates were kind and mom's test results showed no cancer.
My siblings and I are so grateful!
