Dia de los Muertos

Happy Dia de los Muertos!

This won't be a long post. I don't want to steal my sister's thunder. And this is ALL her. (I'll post a LINK to her blog with the complete story.) Halloween has become a VERY big deal in our family the last few years. For anyone on our Christmas card list you'll know what I'm talking about. It's not unheard of to find us discussing costumes in February. This year has been different. With Dad in the midst of chemotherapy we didn't know if he would feel up to dressing up. As of the week before Halloween we didn't have a costume and figured we'd just skip it this year. 

D.D. came up with the idea. Steele was on board as long as he could have a cool hat. My makeup alone took over two hours! But what a FANTASTIC job! My sister is a makeup artist, and she really demonstrated what she can do. Especially what she was able to do on herself!

I LOVE the way my teeth turned out! And my eyes! At the end of the night I was reluctant to remove my makeup. I wanted to revel in it as long as possible. And yes, we did our photo shoot at the cemetery.

THANK YOU D.D. for being the creative force behind my favorite Halloween costume ever!

p.s. we really missed Dad and Mom
