  1. How wonderful you all look! I love your sheer dress. It is absolutely beautiful. What a great idea for a costume event. Growing up I remember going to the cemetary for a picnic lunch. As kids we would run around and play and the women would spruce up the graves. The men did what they always do, eat, smoke, and talks about sports. It was just a Sunday picnic. Here in New Mexico families gather at gravesites by the hundreds on special days like Dia de los Muertos, Easter and Christmas. It is a cultural phenomenon.
