Kavin's 3rd Birthday!!!

Hi Friends,
Nice to be back. Atlast, my big day is over. Yes, my son's birthday which was on April 28th 2007. We had a backyard party with slides,moonwalks and swings. The kids absolutely enjoyed it. Kavin is usually scared to go on slides. But to my amazement he slid down perfectly fine following the other kids. We had around 80 friends (60 adults, 20 kids).

We had the catering from Swapna restaurant. The items were: Appetizers: veg pakora, mysore bonda, chilli chicken,chicken-65,mint chutney and tomato chutney.
Main Course: Veg Biryani,Chicken Biryani, Raitha,Malai kofta, Paneer pasandha,Butter chicken ,Rogan josh and Naan.
Desserts: Rasmalai , fruit salad in mango custard and B'day cake ofcourse.Sorry Guys, I do not have a picture of the buffet table. It's all in the video.


For those of you guys who have not seen me...Here is my picture in the slideshow. The pink fatty girl. Oh no! I'm showing the world in what a bad shape I am. Ok guys, consider this picture as my "BEFORE" picture. Someday when I lose weight I'll post my "AFTER" picture.

Oh...I forgot to mention, we had 3 new guests whom we never knew before. Yes, three baby swallows. They flew right in when we opened the door for the first few guests. Many friends took turns in swooshing them away. But they were determined not to leave. Finally they were the last to leave around 10.30pm.You can check them out sitting on the doors in the slideshow.

I also have to add this....I could not get the picture of all my friends in the slideshow. Most of them were not taken in my camera. Will update it when I get all of 'em.

Sharmi said...

Kribha, you look very pretty. dont ever get conscious about how you look. BTW lovely party and great pics. must have had a great time.

Kribha said...

Dear Asha,
Thanks so much for your kind words. we did have a great party. Actually 15 to 20 people who commited to come did not turn up. Otherwise, you could have seen more Indian people around.

Kribha said...

Dear Richa,
It's true ,I was very relaxed during the party. I owe it all to the catering outside. Usually I would insist on cooking myself and my hubby would fight with me because I would put him to work by running to grocery store and taking care of Kavin. But this time I was tension free because he was also cool.

Kribha said...

Thanks Pravs. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the slide. Parents had to pull them inside to eat. Anyway,they all had a great time.

Dear Chinni,
Thanks for your comments. I know everyone are trying to be nice to me.So sweet of you.

Hi Reena,
You are most welcome. I'm happy to get to know you all.

Dear Sia,
Thanks da.You know, until two days of the party the guest list was totally 35 people. Many guests did not reply to the invitation until the last minute. The last days were hectic. But it was all worth it. Everyone had a nice time.

Kribha said...

Kribha said...

Thanks Prema dear. I gained 40 lbs after delivery. I'm a chocoholic. That's why I was feeling so bad.Anyway, thanks for your nice comments.
Btw, the guest list...20 people who said they would come,never showed up. Otherwise it would have been a bigger party.Still, it was a great day.
