Asha @ 15

15 years ago today our lives changed in a wonderful way.

Asha was born.

Time to celebrate of course.

But how?

The age-old Eicher way - party and all that?

We are transitioning to a new age.  For the first time after 14 years... no cake shaped by Dad - daughter's request.  So a chocolate-laden confectionary was purchased (contributions made to our GNP and to 'Make in India').

Party?  Nope.  Well, not in that name.  Sleep-over planned, but with us all in the midst of the dreaded 'exams' the brave souls who finally ended up in the sleep-over were Joanna and Amy.  The others showed up around 8 pm for the pizza and a round of 'who am I?' and an epic pictionary game.  Then they were back off to their homes for studies (or sleep and wake up early for studies).

And so a grand time was had by all.  We are grateful that Asha has such lovely friends.

Pretty good for an un-party.

And then the sleep-overers had a movie marathon till well into Asha's actual birthday - which is of course today.

But at the 9 am pancake breakfast our young guns did not look too much the worse for the wear.  The advantages of youth!

Happy Birthday Asha - we are so glad for who you are... and who you are becoming!

May your 16th year be one of discovery and joy.

Yohan, Enoch, Asha, Joanna and Amy

 The verse we selected for you expresses part of this:

I will give you hidden treasures,
    riches stored in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the Lord,

    the God of Israel, who summons you by name.    - Isaiah 45.3
