The kids room is tidy!

I finally got the kids room full cleaning done last week! And it still is clean btw (thanks to the wedding and stuff, we haven't been home much :D )

I know it doesn't look so tidy because they have so much stuff..

... but I tell you it has been so terrible you wouldn't recognize it as the same room! :P

I wonder how long it will stay like this..

It's been a week already!

Anyway, YAY me! I did a good job :DDD

Lovely three days! Sooooo happy!

We've spent three wonderful days with Amira's new family. First we had a wonderful henna party at my mom's summer house in the country side. Then the wedding party on Saturday. This evening we met at the adventure park and enjoyed the wedding left overs and good company. MashaAllah it feels like we get along really well..


Most of you might not have heard the whole story of Amira and her dh, but I can tell you it wasn't obvious that her dh's family will accept someone who is not 'one of them'. It has been a long, sometimes rocky road for Amira and her dh, but Alhamdulilah it was worth it. I know she has a good husband who loves her, will take care of her and whose family already loves her too. wub.gif I couldn't be happier! Alhamdulilah for everything!

When we were on the way home we saw a rainbow in the sun set.. it was amazing!

Many sisters have asked me what our finnish families and friends thought of Amira's wedding, so here's some of the best comments:

Amira's grandmother from dad's side (who said she was a wrong person in a wrong place in the henna party) did Debka for one hour and then said: I could have made some more, this is nothing yet grin.gif

Amira's dad, who is not very fond of foreigners (to his mom, nette's grandmother): After this finnish weddings will feel like nothing happy51.gif . He did Dekba too, btw..

The groom's family went to get Amira from her dad's place and then drove across the town to the wedding hall.. So much noise :D

Amira's dad's wife: This is much better than Finnish wedding! People really know how to have fun! (Some of yall might guess, how Finnish people usually have fun and what it needs..)

My aunt: Turkish girls are so beautiful! Those colourful dresses and head scarves make them look much fancier that someone with a mini..

And the same aunt: This is awesome! Women just dance, and men serve tables and do all the work! This is not the way i thought Muslim men act.. smileylaugh.gif

The grooms ex-teacher: I feel like I was abroad! My friends have told me about Turkish and Arabic weddings they saw when they traveled, but now I've seen it myself and it's so much more than the stories I've heard!

The grooms mother who passed away a couple of years ago bought these glasses to be used in her son's wedding..

My parents have got used to our stuff already so they were not as surprised as the others, but they liked it a lot too. Mom gave extra points for table service - in Finnish weddings there's always buffet and people need to stand in queue to get their food! And the same goes with the cakes! She was very happy and said this is much better and faster way!

The wonderful wedding cake!

Everyone who I spoke with liked everything! I heard only positive comments! I guess that party changed some attitudes! mashaAllah! woot.gif

Allahs perfect creations

I can't believe this: this is my second post already because ants got me thinking.. :O . They've attacked my house once again..

Dh has kept two kinds of candy (with paper wraps) on a shelf near our back door. A little over a week ago the ant attack started.. They came to the kitchen mostly, but I saw a few going to the direction of the candy.. I didn't think they'd really do anything there.. Those were hard bon bons, not some soft or sticky ones.. And the paper wraps were tight..

Well, yesterday dh's brother took one candy and there was ants inside it :O . Alhamdulilah he saw it before he put it in his mouth.. I wanted to check the rest of the candies, but had no time yesterday..So today I did.. I couldn's believe what I saw :O SubhanaAllah there was ants all over the candies, but they had been eating only of one from each kind :O . There was more than one kilo candy and all the ants chose to go and eat from the same two pieces! They kept the rest clean! And those were not the first ones on the top, but under almost everything..

You can't see it much from the black candy, but on the white one it shows how they dig a hole in it.

Think how Allah has made the ants! They clearly tell each other where is food.. They find their way between a bunch of candy to eat from the same one.. They find their way home and have their own highways.. through my living room but anyway..

It's so amazing how everything works in this world.. No human inventions come even near the perfection of Allah's creations! If you think of human body for example. How perfectly everything works, how everything is taken care of.. No engineer could ever invent anything like that!

He it is who has created for you all that is on earth, and has applied His design to the heavens and fashioned them into seven heavens; and He alone has full knowledge of everything.
Quran 2:29

it's been a summer of adventure :P

This summer has really been the summer of adventure for us - at least when it comes to going to the adventure park lol :D. We'been there like twice a week.. Or more even. The weather has been good and it can be relaxing for a mother too, so why not? The kids usually don't get bored thee and they don't come and bug you every second minute.. Last time i felt some boredness though.. None of the kids felt like playing with water - the thing they mostly expected when we went there the first few times.. Here's some of the action we've had during the summer in the Adventure park of Turku:

the largest playground in town

with so mant activities

something for everyone.. slides, swings, climbing thingies, and rocking boats etcetc
rocking car and a big stone castle

a huge spider web

rope swing ride
a cool shower and pool

police horses
pony riding


indian adventure

the different outside games guided by a kids club leader..

feeding goats

and ducks, swans, geese, chicken..

circus school

mashaAllah this has been a fun summer! Alhamdulilah not only for the kiddos ;)

SHE IS GETTING MARRIED - and just yesterday she was a little baby..

I can't believe it.. My little Amira is getting married! Feels like she was born yesterday and now she will have her own family inshaAllah!

Here she is about three months old

She was such a busy baby always.. When she was 4 months she started to roll over.. And over.. and over.. And traveled all across the house almost 24/7.

Here she is half year

She learned to go 'four wheels' and stand up when she was half year.. Man she made me run.. Especially after she learned to walk at 8 months and one week :O

About 8 months..

She was a happy baby mashaAllah and she never made too much problems when she grew up. She has given me many reasons to be proud of.

Amira 4 years and Samuli 2 years

Her henna party is on Friday and on Saturday is the wedding..

about 5 years

May Allah bless her marriage and give her and her husband a happy, long life together and a big family ;P Ameen
