It's that time of year again...

Our "Cupcake Neighbor" (she bakes professionally!) and her husband who invited us to go with them today. Their 3 yr old son was asleep in the car and our 3 yr old son was refusing to take pictures.
The feasting month after the fasting month has begun!
And like so many things we've discovered in this seemingly very different culture, the fondness for buying matching outfits on a big holiday (think Christmas and Easter) transcends international, religious, cultural and ethnic boundaries. All siblings matching (and parents included) is cute world-wide!

Kaylee looking lovely in her Raya best. Me looking like the Pacific Ocean with that much blue fabric. This was the outfit I had made from the Indian Sari material I found a few months ago! It turned out great, but still...there's no minimizing the belly these days...
How cute is this picture?
So once we're all dressed up, what do you do all day? 



Go from house to house and eat, of course.
