This weekend we had guests come on Saturday. The Mama is the mother in law of Jason’s really good friend and they had promised they would come to “give us blessing” by visiting a few weeks back. I made some rice and curry and we all talked and shared and ate together. They also brought a zawadi (gift) for Annikah; a dress sewn out of the fabric we had given them a while back. They insisted we could not pay for it even though we tried and instead said it was a “zawadi kwa Annikah.” It was her Eid dress that while did not quite make it in time for Eid was much appreciated by one little girl who has worn it at least part of everyday for the past 3 days.
It is swooshy, blingy, and oh-so-girly and if you ask me: pretty much adorable!
