We had a wonderful Sankranti celebration this year with friends and their family. Being a working day did not disrupt us as our spirits were high! All the working moms, dads and kiddos were equally geared up and charged to enjoy the festivities!Here is Putti all adorned in her festive best holding a plate with 'eLLu bella' (recipe here) mixture and fruits to be distributed amongst friends, which is called 'eLLu bella beeruvudu' :)

post. While doing the shower it is customary to decorate the kids with sugar jewels which is not available here in US, so we have used marshmallow garland, fruitloop necklace and candy necklace in the past. This time however I did not find any candy necklace in the store, it is an Easter thing I believe So made a garland by threading some colorful gum drops and it sure was a messy job ;)
Followed by an arati and rakshe seeking the blessings of the Lord sun to keep the kids healthy.
And off course there was an elaborate festive food spread prepared me and my friends. But we all were in such a hurry to eat, that we forgot to get pictures ;)
