Congratulations all around! :)

These pictures just remind me of how far-faraway Sri and I are from our family. When we were in Bangalore we were at least able to visit home whenever there was something going on...now even that is not an option. Ah well...

:)

Well, we are a little too far away for that. Dunno if you read in my LJ, but we've relocated to Canada. :) Plan to come to India in the 1st week of December. That's the earliest we can afford to come.
