Primary Program

Here is our church building.
Here is Maggie not participating.
Here's everyone afterwards.
The kids got cake and snacks, including Dominos Pizza (which we thought was strange). At this point, Maggie decided to be friendly.
Boys & Girls - as usual. Our branch has the largest Primary. Kannagi was surprised when she saw this picture.

Bangalore: Innovative Film City

Innovative Film City. This place was about as Indian as you can get. Except, it was clean, and they had a really nice McDonald's. It was tacky, run down, the rides looked pieced together, the Disney characters were rip-offs, and there was a peeing-boy fountain. What more do you need?'

Actually, we really enjoyed it. It was inexpensive, and occupied a full day. The mirror maze and the Ripley's Believe it Or Not were great. I've been to several Ripley's museums, and this wasn't any worse than the others I've seen. They also had a double-decker carousel and a roller coaster that actually made my stomach flip a little bit.
I can only assume that is Mickey Mouse.
Buddha filled with shredded bills from the US Mint... (At Ripley's Believe it Or Not)
Animatronic Dinosaurs (aka the reason we went).
They had a small fossil museum as well.
What's with the maniacal WWII machine-gunners?
Louis Toussaud's Wax Museum. They did a good job with Walt, but what's with the blue Donald?
For Mom.
Skimo... It's a treat!

Two Indian Dates

We took Kannagi and Sandeep out to lunch at this Persian restaurant.
This is the first time I'd seen Kannagi wear a sari.
John and I also had a date recently. We went to the fish spa, and out to lunch at UB City.
Instead of getting dessert at the restaurant, we picked out some chocolates from Bliss Chocolate Lounge. They were about a dollar each, but very delicious!

Homemade Halloween Clippies

I posted a tutorial on making these cute Halloween felt hair clips over at Mommysavers. Maggie loves them! Her candy corn clip from a couple years ago is in storage, so we had to make replacements.

Water Bed

I could put the floaties in a different room, but then I wouldn't get any more of these cute pictures. (last time) Besides, he's been napping extraordinarily well this week.
This was yesterday and today - he's wearing the same outfit because he wore his Halloween costume most of yesterday.

While we're being Dalton-dorable, here he is wearing the new shoes Kannagi bought for his birthday. He tried to put them on himself, and was so pleased. He asked to go for a walk.
Then he realized he wasn't dressed (I took off the Halloween costume for dinner) and started demanding "jammies". (Notice Maggie decided she's wearing mis-matched socks.)
And on the little less adorable side, here is what he did to my computer the other day:

Trick or Lettuce!

Happy Halloween! We took the kids trick-or-treating at Daddy's work today. The kids passed our Skittles to many of John's co-workers, and received treats from many of them in return.
Maggie wore Ember's bee costume from last year. She's been talking about being a bee for nearly 12 months. The Monster Bag is also from them - it held a gift for Maggie when Dalton was born.
Dalton ended up wearing his Chinese outfit and being a Ninja. He was napping before we left. ETA: That is Kannagi he's snuggling, not one of John's co-workers.
Dalton ate a LOT of Skittles.
The kids were asked to do "tricks" several times. Maggie's was buzzing around like a bee, and Dalton's was kicking. Maggie actually spoke, though she made up a lot of silly words. Last time we went to John's work, she would only neigh.
Another mouth FULL of Skittles.
Indians don't celebrate Halloween. Plus, Halloween isn't for two weeks. So, we were going to hand out candy to a few people to give the kids, but it was completely unnecessary. The kids got quite the haul with what people had on hand at their desks. Including four boxes of fruit bars, candy bars that cost $1, Kinder Eggs, and a dirty ball.
