Dia de Los Muertos
I've always wanted to decorate sugar skulls for Day of the Dead and I finally got to do it. Martha made a huge batch of skulls for us... I wish I had a picture of them all lined up, bare and white... it really was kind of chilling. Soon enough we all had at them with the frosting tubes and they got all festive.
I think the dead were very pleased.
Some from the party scampered off to dance the Thriller dance (http://www.thrilltheworld.com/) in the awesome Day of the Dead parade they've been having over here on the East side for the last twenty years or so... a goodly mix of tradicionale and Keep Austin Wierd-ness... oh and a healthy shake of zombies, don't forget.
