Birthday Planning, and Sadness

Our son Kavi turns 2 years old on Feb 1st! It's a little hard to believe. We were going to have a birthday party for him the day before his birthday, Sunday Jan 31st. But now we are moving it to this coming Sunday. So I am not really prepared. But that is ok considering the reason. We have a dear friend of the family that has battled with cancer the past few years. She was in remission for an amount of time, but it came back. I have not heard anything yet, but unfortunately she could pass away at any time now. I have been getting updates online here and there. We love her lots and I am praying for her family. She is in her 60's and has a husband and two daughters(grown and married). They have been like family to us even before my parents got married - they met my parents that long ago. They live in the town I grew up in, about 30 minutes south of here.

My family is coming down at the end of the week because of this issue. Our friends let us know that there will probably be a service at the end of the week if she goes home to Heaven soon(unless a miracle happens and she survives longer, then my family would be here to visit her). My heart is very sad for our friends that are in this situation.

After Ikea last Saturday, we stopped at an Indian grocery store that we hadn't been to in a long time. We got a lot of yummy things!! We would like to have Indian snacks at Kavi's birthday party. But that store is in Tampa so it depends on whether we can get down there before Sunday. I wish we had a closer store that had these items. If anyone lives near an Indian grocery store and likes Indian food but isn't sure what to buy, you can ask me!! I can give you some good ideas. :)

I am always so intimidated by the Indian grocery store or even the Indian section because I never know what to get. I do love Indian food :)

If there are any must haves please let me know.
