Rishi's Annaprashan





Our COOLEST neighborhood baby, Rishi, celebrated Annaprashan with his family and friends on Saturday. Annaprashan is the first time an Indian baby eats grown up food. Sushmita and Raja invited us to the party and we had a lovely time. Sushmita can cook like nobody's business! Have you ever been to an event like this? Our neighborhood is so multi cultural! We just love it : )!


Here is the post I wrote about Rishi when he was first born. We love him!

What a great experience! I've never been to an event like that, but I do love to learn how other cultures celebrate events.

How are things in your world? Any big plans for the weekend?

What a wonderful idea. I haven't been to anything like that, but I would love to. They look like such a happy family.

Still praying for Quince's complete healing and peace for his family.

Hey Friend,

I saw your comment on Michelle's blog! I'm sorry for not writing back! If people write e-mails, I always write back. I rarely respond to comments though. Now I feel bad. :) Hope you're doing well! Keep up the blog, it's been so great to catch up on your posts!

peace.

You have the coolest most diverse friends!! My parents do go to the balloon thing. They just went last week. This was the last weekend. You would love their house. They have a big flat roof style house with big wooden pole like things on the outside and huge mountains all around. The inside has some adobe features and tongue and grove if that is spelled right ceilings. It has the coolest porch though imagine the view each day. I miss my mom a ton though.

Sounds like it was a great party! What a wonderful way to spend time with friends. I am praying for Quince and his family. Please keep us updated.

How fun! And that baby is the cutest!!

That is what I like about where I teach...many cultures and I learn so much...not to mention the good food the parents bring for me! Indian and Filipino food are favorites!

Hey, just wondering if there are any new things happening with Quince? I know it's a painstakingly slow process, but I am thinking of him and just thought I'd ask.

OOOOOHHHHHHH!

I love the new blog design!!!!

I've been thinking of re-vamping mine, too.

Sugar D keeps asking where I post my blog......

Hope you had a fantastic weekend, my friend!

Darlene said...

HOW NEAT! I have never heard of that so I'm so glad you shared it!

Reader Wil said...

Every time I learn more about all kind of customs and traditions all over the world. Thank you for telling!

Suz said...

I was also wondering about Quince. I hope he is doing better and his family can breathe a sigh of relief soon.....
I love the new blog look. I am thinking of redecorating. again.
I tagged you. And you don't have to do it if you don't want to...but of course you will feel guilty if you don't, so you might as well just do it. Like Nike. Just do it. :)
