Day 294 - Happy Diwali and first snow

Diwali is the known as the "festival of lights and the beginning of a New Year for Hindus.  We had a mini celebration and lit several tea lights and wished each other a Happy Diwali. In a typical Hindu home on Diwali you would leave all your lights on, wear new clothes and share sweets.  Ousr was a very small celebration compared to what many are doing over in India right now. 

 To give you an idea of how amazing the sight can be here is what India looked like from space today! Truly amazing!

Laila, Jai and Daddy lighting the diyas (candles) for Diwali.

What a HAM!  That girl loves a good celebration of any kind!

We also had our first big snow of the season.  The snow flakes fell for about 8 hours, it was beautiful!  

And while it snowed it kept our little piggies toasty by the fire!

All in all it was a wonderful day, except for Arjun who had two teeth pulled and three cavities filled!  Poor guy!  Pretty sure it is going to take a miracle to get him back to the dentist again!
