Our Eid Day…!

We had a merry old time on Eid day, with lots of relatives visiting, plenty of amazing food cooked by my mum, some beautiful dresses (on the women and the babies!), and a good laugh with everyone. We didn’t do anything extravagant this year (no parties or nights out!), but it was simple and fun, family and friends all dropped by with good wishes and it was a great way to end a memorable Ramadan. Here’s a few pics!

We had a fabulous wardrobe (although no one had better outfits than the baby girls in the family):

…which was accessorised with pretty jewellery and bangles:

And even better, the girls had some gorgeous mehndi on:

There was some scrumptious food for everyone to eat:

Followed by several desserts, like Eid biscuits, cakes, mithai and savouries:

And of course, Eid presents! The babies and kids got spoiled the most, although all of us got some amazing presents (mostly clothes and jewellery, and of course chocolate!), which we all loved.

All in all, a great day for everyone, we’re all pretty wiped out now and still recovering, but it’s nice to have had a big family celebration after a while. Now that Ramadan is over, we’ll be going on trips and having lots of barbeques, although that’s not to say that this special month has been forgotten!
