Fun Friends :)

So here are my friends Allison, Reba & Christine... they were all together at a wedding about a year and a half ago and I was sad that I missed everyone together, so Reba "photoshopped" me in the picture :)But! This weekend we got to all see each other in the flesh and take a real picture of the 3 of us!
The next day, Christine & I were talking to Reba (who is pregnant and due at the end of January) and we told her that we would like for her to have her baby that weekend so that we could be there. Christine told her that she had some free time on Saturday, so that day would be good for her! haha! I told her about a song that my friend Mandy made up that she sings to pregnant ladies that encourages the baby to come out (... she only mentioned the song around me and I had my baby that week!) ... We thought it was worth a try :)
We sang the song to her and she went into labor that night!
So.... here we are visiting her in the hospital after she had her baby girl - Ella!
Congrats Reba! Ella is Awesome!!!


That is so cool!! I'm going to have to learn that song so I can sing it to some of my prego friends!

too fun! I'm sure you miss a lot of these events living abroad, so it's great you were able to be there for your friend this time!

I have to laugh at your statement 'we got to all see each other in the flesh and take a real picture of the 3 of us' because by my count, there are FOUR in that picture... FIVE if you count unborn Ella! but with good friends, eveything gets all mushed together and you're all part of each other (at least that's how it is for me with my friends), so you can call it 3 if you want. :)

I love it that Mandy's "Baby ____" song is now world-renowned. It worked for me too, and also for Baby Caskey! Think "Name That Prophet" will catch on, too? ;) That's funny they photoshopped you in. I joked about doing the same thing with one of my best friend's wedding pics, except I would be in a sari. :)

I know you had a blast. Talked to Jason and he really missed seeing you guys. You will have to photoshop him into the pictures from the reunion.
I know what it is like to be overseas and miss weddings, births, etc. I know you and Adam were so excited to be here for so much. I pray as you continue in your chosen field.

Ella is such a beautiful name!!!!
Ok, that first pix just cracks me up. Well, its amazing that you can do that but your head is soooo small it makes her head look really big, its just so funny:)

Mandy never sang that song to me, and if Jyoti had not come 10 days early then I would definitely have had to get her to sing it! That's great!

I'm so glad you got to be there for your friend's baby's birth. Those opportunities are rare when friends live on opposite sides of the world.

Oh...and the photoshop picture reminds me of something - when I got married my best friend was in India so we printed out a picture of her and stapled it to a stick and carried her around during the rehearsal. haha!

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand).

Campa Cola & Exploring :)

Today we had some things to do in the Central part of our city, so while we were there, we decided to take on some adventures :) Adventure #1 - the underground market. This market is pretty crazy. It's actually underground and has electronics & clothes mostly. They sell things pretty cheap, so it's an interesting place to go. Today we got an 64 Gig flash drive/pen drive for about $5. Crazy hunh? Here's Adam and Aashini in one of the stores. They're all REALLY small stores - about 10x10 feet I would guess (but I'm really bad at guessing that sort of stuff :)) We go here a lot to get things, so I guess it's not a new adventure, but an adventure nonetheless.
Before the next part of our adventure (the real part of our adventure) we stopped for lunch. Aashini will always eat at McDonalds, so that's where we went :) They just started selling chicken nuggets here at McDonalds, so it's super easy to get her to eat there :) This McDonald's had high chair…
