Aashini's school had a Christmas party day on Christmas Eve. (oh, and if you look in the background of this pic you'll see a little girl - she was born on the same day and at the same hospital as Aashini - cool hunh?). The kids were greeted at school by Santa - which this Santa is another example (with the mask) of why Aashini is scared of him! This Santa cracks me up! it's one of her teachers... have you ever seen a Santa with such nice shoes ;) haha!
The kids were supposed to come to school dressed like Santa, in red, or dressed like a fairy... we were confused about the last one. They take "dress-up days" very seriously, so we needed to do a good job dressing her up! We bought her a Santa costume but when I got it home we realized that it was way too small :) haha! I didn't have a chance to go back to a market before then, so I decided to dress her in red and dress her like a fairy... of course I didn't have a fairy costume or wings, so I dressed her in red and clipped on some little wings we had and gave her a crown & wand... yeah, it wasn't the best fairy costume...
Here she is arriving at school - see all the Santa costumes!?
Some of the costumes were really funny... Aashini's included I think - haha! Apparently a fairy is what they call an angel :) haha! So the girls dressed up as Fairies had on really fancy white dresses :)
Aashini had a fun day at school :)
And here's a Diya picture for fun :)
You guys ROCK!
