I was too excited and busy to take some good pictures inside the house.  Its just a small glimpse.

Children did enjoy the sparklers.

There was plenty of yummy food.  but the red onion pickle was a hit.

I hope you all had a wonderful Deepvali as well.

Wishing you all a very happy and successful week.
