Other year has gone by...
My baby is three years old now!



We had a low-key birthday for her yesterday. Having a school party on Tuesday though. Anyway, as part of the family-only celebrations, we took the girls to go play mini-golf. We found a cool place near our apartment and spent a few hours there. It was Nadia's first time playing mini-golf and she loved it. The course is on the roof of a mall near us...so afterwards, we did a bit of shopping and bought a cake to bring home. Came home, opened gifts, had dinner and then cake.

Honestly, a great day for the family only.

Pictures from October 14, 2006

OH...it was also our 12th wedding anniversary. TWELVE! Overshadowed by Nadia's birthday (which is why I didn't want her born on the same day, but it's ok). We didn't do much to celebrate. Which is ok...instead of it being a "OMG, our anniversary is so dull and I didn't get or give a present, what is wrong with us?!" kind of day, it's more of "wow, we go out a lot these days and still love being together and every day is full of love, so our anniversary doesn't have to be a huge celebration to be important".

So, what did we do after the kids went to bed? Opened a couple of bottles of wine and played WoW until midnight.

:-D

hi priya. :) i just happened to randomly stumble across your LJ and i'm glad i did! i really enjoyed my visit here. a reasons why:

1.) your entries are interesting to read.
2.) your daughters, maya and nadia, are both so adorable!
3.) i'm assuming you're indian, by your name, and obviously your kids are interracial, which i LOVE, because i've grown up within communities that had tons of interracial kids, considering i went to an international school all my life.
4.) when i saw the pics of nadia in her birthday outfit (the yellow and red pattu-pavadai, which is what we call that in my south indian culture, heh), it totally reminded me of my sis and i when we were young and she was dressed like that for her 4th birthday. :)
5.) and following from my point before, seeing maya and nadia is like seeing my sis and i together. though we're a lot older. hehe.
6.) you live in asia! i pretty much grew up in asia, so i have a lot of love for that side of the world.

okay, i'm done rambling, but i think i could go on and on. hehe. i don't remember how i happened to come across your LJ (i think thru a mutual friend perhaps?) but i'm happy i did, and i would love to add you to my friend's list, if that's ok? and would you maybe be interested in adding me back? let me know!

p.s - happy birthday to nadia and happy anniversary to you and your husband!

Welcome...Rani? I'm assuming that's your name, so correct me if I'm wrong, ok? I guess you found me through co_techie's LJ since that's the only common LJ friend we have! :-D

I read just a little of your journal (haven't had much time for LJ since I started working part-time again), but seems like we'd get along fine if we were to ever meet in person! So, based on that, I'm adding you. I'd appreciate the add back too.

Looking forward to getting to know you! :-)
