Wedding Season!

It's holiday season right now which means it's wedding season too :) The other night we went to our friend's son's wedding. It was a Christian wedding, so much different than a Hindu wedding. I love this girl's smile (below). She's newly married.
This is the foot of the little girl that sat in front of us :)
Here is the bride and her mother. A lot of brides in Christian weddings will wear a white sari and a veil.
This bride had some lacy gloves!!
At one point in the wedding they had Adam go up front to pray. He took Diya up there with him and as he was praying he kept moving further and further away from the microphone - which means that he was moving Diya closer and closer to it. At one point she grabbed the foamy thing that covers the mic (you can see it in her hands in the pic below if you look closely). All the women laughed (I guess they were looking at her during the prayer time :) haha!)
Here's the bride and groom.
Here is Diya at the wedding :) haha!
I love her little tongue! :)
Here's Aashini playing on the floor during the wedding - it was really long :)
Here's the groom.
I've hardly ever seen this, but for this wedding the groom got henna on his hands too :)
This is our friend Deepak and his son Ashish (it means blessing).
This is our friend Kamla below in the white sari. It's her son that's getting married ;)
These are our friends Deepak & Sunita and their sons Ashish & Daniel (with a sad Diya). The photo itself isn't very good, but I wanted to post it anyway :)
The girls LOVED getting all dressed up for the wedding! They love to dress up!

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!

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…

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). Everyon…
