and baking bread,
Anyone who has had Spanish class or children in Spanish class is familiar 
with Pan de Muerto or aka Bread of the Dead.

Love the costumes. One year I dressed Trav and Kaje' as Raggedy Ann and Andy. I think they were 7 and 3 if I remember right. I wish I had a scanner to post the pictures! I've never heard of the bread but it looks so yummy!

The bread looks fantastic!!! I have such a weakness for bread, especially homemade and fresh out of the oven!

The costumes are cute, too.

Hello Robyn, This is a late blue Monday comment. I ran out of time. I think you both look great in your Raggedy Ann and Andy costumes. It sounds like you had a full weekend. The bread looks so good. I love this time of year. We were out of town so I am still catching up. Take care.
