Eid-ul-Adha 2012/1433: Fun, Bling and Gifts

We opted for a simple Eid this year.  With two new babies and a family wedding in recent months, following on from a summer Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, wedding season in general and my pregnancy, simplicity seemed to be the kindest option.

So this time round I didn't get the decorations out, I didn't do any shopping or put on any henna.  What we did do was gather together at my mum's for good food and good company.  We spent the day laughing, joking, winding each other up, reminiscing and enjoying the two new babies in the family.

Shutterbug Sisters Eid gift to me.  You can bet this didn't last long.

The kids got some really cool gifts from their aunts too.  I think I might have to get some of these erasers for myself too.

Little Lady enjoyed laying her gifts out.  She got spoiled rotten this year:

I really like the gumball pendant Kooks got for her below.

In all, I really enjoyed not having to do too much this Eid and just enjoying mum's amazing cooking and the company of my sisters and cousins.
