festival of lights

yesterday was our big holiday, diwali where we welcome Laxmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity.  we celebrated by putting up a small alter of our hindu gods and lighting tons of candles.  we cleaned our house and wore new clothes.  the boys put on ornate indian outfits and looked so handsome...little bollywood actors.  we did our prayers, ate sweets for a sweet life and had a delicious feast made my my mom.  then the kiddos received gifts like an early Christmas.  they were over the moon.  it was a fun evening with our family in our new home....
