5 years and counting

Anjali turned 5 this week... and like I wrote on her card, I cant imagine a day without her. I feel like its a major milestone. Luckily her birthday fell on a Monday which means we got to have a family birthday celebration (including Achchi) and a big celebration with her preschool friends the following Sunday. We ended up doing ice cream instead of cake for our family celebration. She wanted mint with chocolate chips and candles on top, of course. Then we went to our favorite water fountain at Jamison park for some frolicking, followed by her favorite dinner... home cooked Ravioli. She even shelled some peas that she grew in the garden for dinner. I broke some rules and got her a Barbie... her first, a gorgeous Indian Barbie. Thaththi got her a more practical scooter which grandma took for a spin. All in all it was a perfect birthday for a near perfect girl. The party with her friends was a lot more rambunctious.
