Asalaam Alaikum/Hi all
Well seeing as we are celebrating Eid tomorrow it gave us an extra day to get ready!
We managed to get our Henna done, I picked up the cupcakes (finding it so hard not to eat one today!) and started some of the food prep too.
I decided that this year I wanted to make more of an effort for munchkin so I got some Eid banners and balloons. She is so excited mashAllah and said she wants to stay at my mums house tonight with her cousin. This will be the first ever night I will have spent away from her and I am not looking forward to it.
I usually find Eid quite boring if I am honest. As a family we usually get together most weekends anyway so it doesn’t feel overly special. I really want to celebrate Eid abroad as the atmosphere will be completely different. The rest of the family are there, aunts, cousins etc and it can feel lonely here at times. I was planning to go to Pakistan this Eid but my father in law stopped us as he said it was too hot. InshAllah we will be celebrating the next Eid there in November.
Anyway here are some pictures! Enjoy! I will try to post pictures of the food tomorrow!! 😀
Love this cute plaque.
Almost too good to eat!! Waiting for tomorrow!
This has come out a lovely orange colour now!
