Kaarthigai Deepam - Photo Blog
We were all set to celebrate the Kaarthigai Deepam festival. Needless to say the festival involves lighting clay lamps, decorating the house, house cleaning, some really delicious eats like rice crispies in caramel (pori urundai's in Tamil) and of course the kids in the best of their finery !!
The celebration was somewhat muted by the little one being sick the whole of last week and daddy doing a blotched job of using Ant Killer spray (sprayed himself in the process and was sick like an ant that has just been sprayed!).
Lesson Here : If you do use old ant spray from two years ago, make sure you clean the nozzle before spraying !!
But we still managed some lights.
and here is the toddler in her new (altered) Silk Paavaadai !!
Getting ready for the holidays !!
