dia de los angelitos

It has been a very trying day. On top of Rory getting in MORE trouble at school, I spent all day trying to track down orange marigolds for my ofrenda and the bakery I was getting my sugar skulls from sold out because I am stupid and didn't reserve them.

However, I have a princess in shining work boots who went into the city on her way home and got me an alternative :o)

Of course there is a pez dispenser (K collects them) with candy, the angels from Aunty Chrissy and Nanny Coral, the charm from Michelley, the gown he wore when he was born, cranes made the day of his funeral and his name blocks.

After what happened at the cemetary last week, I dont feel comfortable leaving offerings there so I will light incense at his grave tonight, and burn the same incense at home to guide his spirit back to us.

Next to my little ofrenda is a shelf with my scrapbook and many tiny glass angels to represent all of the tiny lost babies I have come to know this year. If you are in my deadbabymafia...your baby is there in tiny glass angel form.

Does anyone else celebrate Dia de los Muertos and Dia de los Angelitos??

I hope you don't mind but I tagged you on my blog.

My mom does an ofrenda every year for my dad, uncle, grandparents, and cousin (all except my grandparents died way too early).

I should put some pictures up on my blog. It is really moving every year to see what she has done.

We miss all of them so much.

We celebrate Dia de los Muertos. We actually have a large altar set up at the art center where they had the big fiesta in our state. There are photos on my blog if you are curious or my altar and I'm about to upload photos of the other altars to put on a slideshow
