EID

EID was good, alhamdulillah. The prayer at the mosque in front of me had way less people than usual, people are scared of crowds cause of swine flu. Whatever, after breakfast we went to sleep for a bit cause we were up late and up early. E brought the kids a bunch of candy and we gave them money so they could choose their own gifts. I think next time we'll do one gift exchange and money cause it's fun to open gifts! We thought of having a party but a lot of people are out of town or busy so whatever. We went to dinner at our favorite restaurant, then had Ice cream at the promenade. We then stopped at a toy/gift shop so the kids could pick out some toys and I got a wannabe-fake kipling bag for free cause the shop has this card that you get stamped and then you get a free 50LE. Heh heh heh, (<---evil laugh)Using my kid's purchases for my own gain! The bag had this stupid ape keychain that I gave Dawood. I had the same bag in black but the zipper broke so that tells you how poorly made it is. Whatever, it was free.

Here are some pics from yesterday. I went with a coppery brown hijab cause the green one I had lined up was too small when I wore it, looked weird.





Zayneb also got a diary with lock (ooooh!) and Dawood got a Yugi Watch. S&S got a lame doll with the annoying noisy toys pictured here. You can't see it but they say "Benign Girl" hahahahahahaha.

    Yesterday I was thinking of you and how you are wearing that beautiful outfit.I am sorry you could not wear the green hijab.Maybe you could buy another one in green.But,the coppery one looks nice,too.It gives a more classy look.
    I am so glad you posted some pictures :)!They are so nice and cute.If I would have such a family I would feel so blessed,as I am sure you feel,too.
    Oh...and yes you can never say NO to a free bag ;)!

  24. Lameese, thanks for the compliment, I don't use makeup everyday but If I look tired or especially anemic I use a little cream blush,a light coat of mascara and literally a drop of lip stain (covergirl)
