I hope 2013 is a happy and prosperous for everyone.This evening I wanted a 'first photo of the year' photo of the siblings, but the teenagers in the household did not cooperate. So instead, I took a photo of the cute cousins together (bunny ears and all!)
Happy New Year! read more »
Our sweet nephew Mobeen turned four today, and we celebrated it with a party at McWane Center. He is crazy about cars of all sorts, so naturally, the cake was a car too.
A Ferrari! And delicious too, from everyone's favorite bakery, Edgar's.
After pizza, cake and ice cream we all scattered to roam the adventure halls. There is a new bubble exhibit, that kept us entertained for a while.
How does it feel to be standing in a bubble?
And then we went upstairs and checked out the Clifford E... read more »

Bilal had a great birthday today. He woke up this morning and was excited to play with the gift that Christina had let him pick out. He actually set up the track all by himself. Then after breakfast I helped him set up a new Lego set he had picked out. One toy that never gets old.Even though everyone else was fasting I took him, on his request, to McDonald's for lunch.

Yesterday evening, after I had cooked dinner, we got a call from Farah asking if we would like to come over and eat with them. Not typical for a weeknight, but who can pass up the opportunity, especially with no school in the morning? Zakir had had a busy day, so he passed up on the idea, but I took the kids over to spend some time with their cousins. Farah had cooked some delicious Biryani, which we all enjoyed, and after dinner the kids went down to the lake with Adeel to sail his new remote controlled... read more »
We fought the crowds during our trip to Atlanta.
Apparently, since it's Memorial Day weekend, both a long weekend and the first one of the summer holidays, everybody decided that it was a good time to visit Atlanta. The crowds were horrible. But the trip to LLDC was kind of fun.The fabulous Fox Theater:
We met Farah and the boys there for a little while. They built cars,
and had a chance to race them too!
That was on Saturday afternoon. And on Sunday,
The Georgia Aquarium. Pics to follow soon. read more »
Many memories of an old tire swing, at my grandma's house, (we called my Grandma simply, Ma) from whenI was a little girlhave been on my mind lately and I have no idea why.Maybe it's because life was so simple?Maybe it's because of the warmth of this spring is triggering my mind and making me remember?Maybe it's because it was such a happy time of life for me?I don't have the answers, but all I know is that the memories wont leave so I must write them down to make room for other stories and memories that... read more »
