Our Princess turned 4 Today

Our daughter turned 4 today. We did not celebrate here because we have pre-celebrated her birthday in the Philippines. We hesitated to answer her when she asked us if she can celebrate her birthday there with her cousins because it was a day after my brother was buried. But we thought that it was also a perfect time to cheer up my brother's daughters so we threw a small party for her. Not so much food, just sphagetti, bihon, sandwich, bbq and a cake.

My husband could not believe how much kids showed up although we did not invite any (grins). I told him that it is different in our place. People will invite themselves if there are free food. But it was fun although crowded. The only bad part was we had brown out so with a lot of kids coming in the house, it was so hot.

I went to Legazpi the morning of July second to pick up the cake that our good friend Ate Chay had ordered. I bought some gifts too so that our Princes won't get bummed out. One good thing in the Philippines that I like is that we never waste food, when we have a party all the foods will be consumed/eaten.

Happy Birthday Anak, we love you so much... May God bless you with good health and long life!
