1 hour left to iftar (breaking the fast), and I am starting to freeze again. 22 hours fast was a bit hard to handle in the beginning, but as time passed I got used to it. It's absolutely doable!
There are just some few fasts left of this Ramadan. It has passed so quickly! Eid is either on friday or saturday here, so it's time to start planning the eid day. For me eid means sweets and more sweets! My mom used to make the pakistani sweet dish called "Ras malai", and I used to have that for breakfast, then continuing with cake and chocolate the rest of the day . *Such Lovely Memories*
Now that I have become a mom myself, I feel I need to make some good traditions for my kid too. So I've been looking around for some inspiration the last years, and I have concluded that decorating the house is a must. This year I ended up trying to make some printable decorations in addition to lots of sweets! (No eid without sweets!)
If you like the colours and the design, you are most welcome to download them. For the pennants you will need a string and some glue or tape. If you want to use the cupcake toppers, cut it out and tape it to a toothpick.
On eid day we will be going to the eid prayer in the mosque and then celebrating the rest of the day with family. Mahdi will probably enjoy a lot. I will be allowing him to have cake and cupcakes with loads of frosting on top! Yum! Not to mention eid gifts! Me and my siblings used to buy eid gifts for each other and our cousins, but now that we are grown ups with kids it's changed to buying gifts for each others kids. I love buying gifts for kids, and then watching them get happy when they tear the wrapping paper.
Hopefully, the weather will be good, and the kids can play around outside and have some ice cream too!
Wishing you all a happy and blessed eid!
