19th November was mom's birthday and we wanted to remember her and celebrate her! So Ginny Bhaboo and I decided to throw a surprise dinner party for the boys (just the four of us) to celebrate mom :o)
The venue was Gulab and Gulabo's flat, and it was disguised as a friday night dinner with the four of us after everyone got off work (wink wink...). Ginny Bhaboo took charge to bake the cake and Gulabo took charge to create a slideshow for the boys with old and new family pictures! The plan was set and Bhaboo and Gulabo started work on their exciting projects... with unexpected hurdles along the way... Bhaboo had to bake three cakes to get it as she desired, and Gulabo had to create the slideshow in less than an hour.
Bhaboo set out to bake the pecan cake on Thursday night, which did not turn out right... so she had to bake a second one on Friday morning before work, and since she was running late, she had to shut down the oven 10 minutes early... which collapsed the cake... and she had to try again in the evening right after work, and third time was a hit! The cake was so delicious, that I am afraid i'll have to confess I was the one who gobbled up most of it ;) While all this was going on at the Anthony residence, Gulabo had her set of hurdles to jump in order to create the slideshow... First of all she decided on the slideshow on Tuesday, and hoped to scan old pictures while Gulab Singh was out for meetings, which to her luck did not happen till Friday afternoon... and to make things more interesting, Gulabo's MAC refused to connect and scan with the scanner... so Gulabo had to sneak into Gulab Singh's office while he got ready in order to use his work laptop to scan and upload the pictures... and that too in a record breaking 15 minutes. After Gulab Singh left for his meeting, leaving very little time for Gulabo to juggle cooking dinner for the party and creating the slideshow... Gulabo zipped around the flat to cook-clean-create! Since both Bhaboo and Gulabo are super-woman, they completed everything and were all set and ready in the evening! :D
The boys reached home after work, and we surprised them with the cake and the slideshow... the candles were blown by Gulabo & Anthony, and the cake was cut by Mrs Anthony and Gulab Singh :) followed by food and lots of interesting childhood stories with mom!! We ate a lot, we talked a lot and we giggled a lot... perfect recipe for a wonderful evening... Mom, wish you were here with us, and we all miss you very much and love you loads!

Hello Friends and Family!
We just learnt that we can link our YouTube account to our blog, so we are sharing some old videos from there :) We are going to flood this page with home videos soon... so watch out, for some laughs!!
This one was a slide-show created for the brides (i.e. Meeeeeeeee) sangeet party!! :) And, yes, that is mom and dad singing (coaxed by Meeee) my favorite childhood songs/rhymes in the beginning.
