Ah, new Eid clothes! What fun. DD2 was sick for Eid, so didn't get to wear his new clothes, but DD1 had her new "party" dress on (that she picked out at Target... very Eid like
all cream and tulle with gold snowflakes)... and DS1 had his new Eid clothes on too.
Now that I think of it, I did make soup as well.. the translated name is bird tongue soup (blech)..but it's just a simple beef broth with orzo pasta and cardamom pods. Very easy to make (especially as one has beef broth from making the fattah)... and good.
I read about the big happenings in Five Points. Sounds like fun. The Turkish community is 1000x more organized than the general Muslims here. Maybe we should all start up Turkish classes and just blow the other guys off.
DH got a new job and it's here in JAX.. .so ISA we don't have to move. Yippee. Still probably 2-3 months until he can start... waiting on insurance and stuff. But still, alhamdullilah.
We had popovers, veggie sausage, and hot chocolate for day 2 of Eid breakfast today. Now, I'm waiting for it to warm up a bit so I can take the two boys for a bike ride. DS2 got a new bike (Toy Story) for Eid. We've spent the morning making Aliens in DS1's Martian Matters Alien Changer toy that he got. DH thinks I went overboard.. I gave each kid two toys plus we got a family gift (board game). He has no idea what Christmas is like. LOL
