This Eid was Ahmad's first Eid! We did so many decorations and baked so many sweets! Ahmad loved looking at the balloons and the hanging stars! We had a lot of people over- about 15-20- and we all had a great time! Now for the pictures!
Our house! Yes finally found a couch that we liked!

Alhamdulilah (All praise to God) Eid was good- even though these two boys that came with their family were a hassel! They went into the bathroom, unrolled all the toilet paper, wet it in the sink- clogging it at the same time- and threw the wet paper on the walls! I knew how much trouble they are from the lack of discipline by their parents, so I was following them everywhere and keeping an eye on where they were going. I caught them doing it and was able to clean the huge mess before any one else saw it!
Despite the few things that tried my patience I had a wonderful Eid! It is always nice to have friends over and feed them! Eid Mubarak to all!
