The Kiddos in the Mountains - Thanksgiving 2011

 The girls had a great time in the mountains!!!  Aashini is really into posing for pictures now :)  This picture cracks me up :)
 This is in the room where we had our meals ;)
 I tried to take a picture of the girls one day... it didn't quite work out :) haha!
 Here's Diya on the safari :)  She loved the "'noculars" :)

Diya's Birthday!!!

Diya is TWO!!!  Diya's birthday was November 26th.  On her actual birthday we were on a train all day coming home from our trip, so we didn't celebrate that day.  On the 24th our friend Susan had a birthday, so the resort made a cake for Diya and Susan that day.  Diya thought it was so fun!
 She got cake, ice cream AND chocolate syrup!
 She loved it!   Her favorite thing about birthdays is the cake! :)
 A day after we were back, we celebrated her birthday as a family (she already had her Princess Party with her friends a few weeks before - I totally need to post those pictures!  I'm so behind!).   Here she is opening  one of her presents - a doll :)
 She was so happy with her cupcake!
 SUPER Happy!
 She tries really hard to blow out the candles... but still needs some help :)
 She ate the frosting off the top :)

 Here's a video of Diya and her cake/candles :)  I think it's cute :)
Later that day we went to the mall and played and ate :)  Here's Diya (with her doll) all ready to go (and making a silly face :)

Diya's FIRST Day of School!

Diya started school last week!  I can't believe she's big enough for school!!!
For the first 2 days, the kids go to the basement play room and play with the other new kids and teachers as they adjust.  We're in the same room, so it's not so stressful for them.  
On the 3rd day they take the kids to their class for one hour of the time (the rest of the time they're in the basement room).  On the 4th day they spend a few hours in their class (while we sit downstairs in case we're needed) and the 5th day we drop her off!  She did really good!  She really loves school and gets excited to go!
On her first day they celebrated "Mickey's Birthday", so they had a cake and sang.  Diya thought that was AWESOME!  That girl LOVES cake! haha!  She loved it!
So, starting this week, she'll be in school regularly.   She's having a lot of fun!
