I just love weekends especially if there’s an event worth celebrating and of course, birthdays should always be remembered. Today, my hubby’s niece, who happens to be my gad-daughter too, celebrated her 7th birthday. It was a simple family gathering for my hubby’s side of the family. An event like this is always a good excuse for them to bond.
A family get-together like this is also a chance for my kids to bond with their cousins. It just makes me happy to see them have a good time. Especially since the kids do not have cousins on my side of the family.
Regardless of how simple it is, birthdays should always be celebrated because it is a way of thanksgiving for the gift of a beautiful life.
To our dear Alyssa, Happy Birthday! I wish you happiness and content, and continue to be a sweet child and bring joy to your family. We love you!
Last Saturday, me and my son attended a birthday party. The celebrant is the son of my high school batch mate. It was a themed party — “Disney Royalty” is the theme of choice. It was so cute to see all the children wearing the most adorable costumes. Of course, my son being a tweener refused to wear a costume.
This is probably the first theme party that I attended where even the parents wore costumes, like a King and Queen. Isn’t that cool?
Of course, a true Filipino party is not complete without Lechon.
Too bad I have to leave early because my son does not want to join the games anymore and he gets bored easily. It was truly a feast it for a prince. Happy Birthday, dear John Glenn!
It was a fun-filled weekend for us and I hope you also had a blast during the weekend.
June is the birthday month of two wonderful people — my one and only brother and my lovely daughter.
Kuya had his birthday bash last Friday with his friends and co-workers. My sister, hubs and I decided to join him for this special day. Although most of his visitors are people whom I hardly know but I don’t need to be acquainted with them to see how well-loved my brother is. I am very happy and proud to have a very hardworking brother. Someone whose perseverance is commendable that he can triumph everything he sets his heart into. I’m so proud of you, Kuya!
Saturday was my daughter’s birthday. We had a simple dinner with my family. Since I belong to a very small family and never got the chance to know most of my relatives, we always make it a point that we bond as much as possible.
Happy Birthday to my brother and to my charming daughter! I wish you all the best!

It’s MIL’s birthday and it was a mini reunion for my hubby’s family. Coming from a very small family, I truly appreciate gatherings like these where you get to touch base with your relatives. Honestly, I was not able to take a lot of photos because I was busy attending to visitors and because of the paralyzing heat.
Cousins-in-law with my daughter….
Of course, the kids will always enjoy console games while the adults are chit-chatting
Here’s my youngest cousin-in-law, ain’t he cute?
Happy Birthday MIL!

I hope you all had a very good weekend.
After hearing Easter Sunday Mass, we headed to my MIL’s house to celebrate two occasions, Easter Sunday and the birthday of our nephew/godson.
My BIL and his wife prepared the Easter Eggs for the kids to hunt. It was so nice to see them all over the place looking for those hidden eggs. It’s a tradition that I didn’t get to enjoy when I was a kid. The look on their faces upon finding their loot is truly priceless.
It was a relaxing Sunday with my in-laws something my hubs look forward to during a long break from work. Of course, a birthday will not be complete without a birthday cake…
Happy Birthday to our dear nephew and Happy Easter to all of you!
We spent Earth Hour at our friends house. It was a welcome change from the usual stay at home since the kids get to enjoy the company of other kids and enjoy global action to change. It was like camping under the moonlight. Here are the kids enjoying the food as they await the lights off.
They played with glow sticks and ate all night long. It was truly an enjoyable night with close friends as we do it for a worthy cause.
Sunday was the day we celebrated my Mom’s birthday by checking in one of the nearby hotels. The kids had a blast as they go in for a dip in the pool with my sister.
We ended the night by having dinner at Arya Persian Restaurant.
To the greatest woman in my life… Happy, Happy Birthday! I LOVE YOU!

It was the celebration of my li’l man’s birthday this weekend. Nothing grand, we just watched a movie of his choice and ate out after. One thing we have made our kids understand is that they cannot have a party every time they celebrate their birthdays. I believe it’s better like that so they do not get frustrated.
We watched Percy Jackson and The Lightning Thief together with their friend – who is like part of the family.
The kids enjoyed their usual movie house snack — popcorn, and my boy’s fave — nachos!
After the movies, we decided to have a late dinner.
Happy Birthday to my dearest boy! May the Lord continue to guard and protect all the days of your lives! I love you, my dear son!
How did your weekend go?
