Busy Eid!

We had such a busy and fun time during Eid, AlhamduLILLAH. My husband was up with me until about three A.M. blowing up balloons with my mother-in-law.

Ready for Eid

Then, we had to decide where to go for the Eid prayer. There was a celebration in the local area so we went there and let me tell you, on the way there was much rain, thunder and lightning! SubhanALLAH. It stopped before we had to go outside again and the day cleared. We quickly grabbed some lunch,took naps and wrapped up the remaining gifts before giving them to the kids.

Afterward, we headed to the Fantasy Fair at the mall and mashaALLAH there were so many Muslims everywhere!

Busy Celebrating

I thought for a second that my daughter was dozing off on the train

but they really woke up when they got to the planes.

Time to Fly

We finished up the festivities with the lovely ice cream cake that said 'Id Mubarak. Overall, we had a great but tiring holiday and we look forward to it again in a couple of months, along with the new addition to our family, InshaALLAH.
