We had Amaani wear the same thing she did for year 1 now that it actually fit her. She absolutely loves the getting dressed up. It was a bit of pain for us to get it on her but she was a sport and enjoyed every moment of it. Here are some pictures:
Ishaan on the other hand does not like anything about getting dressed up. We tried to get him into a comfortable kurta but he wanted it out, deja vu from the first year. We got some pretty good pictures of them.
This year we wanted them to try and do rakhi on their own for most part. They both did really well.
And of course Amaani was thrilled with her gift ...
Since the whole ceremony only lasts about 15 minutes, the kids had their own little after party.
