Aditi 1st Birthday Celebrations
ADITI's FIRST BIRTHDAY - 17 June 2007
Aditi’s 1st Birthday was celebrated yesterday, 17 June 2007 in a grand manner. We decorated our front room the previous night itself, even though the function was to be held in a hotel. Ashok and Neeraja did it wonderfully well. They had come in the morning (16th) from Bangalore. Our other granddaughter SOWMYA came in the afternoon from her house at Tiruvanmiyur. With their arrival, the house became a fun place.
On 17th, Arvind went to Ambassador Pallava and brought the yummy birthday cake. Aditi who was already wearing one of her new dresses was dressed again in a fresh new dress. We too wore our best and started for Adyar by 3-45 PM.
The function was at Pizza Corner at Adyar. Guests started trickling in by 4-00 PM and soon the place was humming with activity. Usha, Gopal, Vibha and Veena who had arrived in Chennai on 16th from Delhi were among the first to arrive. There were more than 75 guests in all.
Aditi was in full flow and Sowmya too picked up soon. The two granddaughters were enjoying the evening.
Aditi cut the birthday cake to the cheerful response from all. Aditi started dancing and it was a beautiful sight ! Some games were played for the kids who had come. Sowmya, by now, was also in full mood and it was these two – Aditi and Sowmya – who were the cynosure of all eyes.
Then the snacks were served – two pieces of pizzas, two slices of bread, aloo finger chips, coca cola, and ice cream. Wow, that was yummy.
By 6 PM, the guests started leaving and the function came to a close. We collected the gifts and presents and came home. The function was great and enjoyable.
Our ADITI is now one year old. Sowmya had completed her first year one month ago on 17 May and today Aditi did.
