Because his 36th is coming up, and and because we will be busy the following week, we celebrated early.
But this is the real winner for me and the baby! So yummy! The Batangas tsokolate did it.
Yay! Thank you Lord for the life you continue to bestow on Dad. Being 75 nowadays is quite a feat. We do ask for more years to be with him. Sorry, I don’t have pictures on the actual day since we had to leave early and then went home late. Of course, I didn’t forget to cook the noodles as tradition.
Oh we are having a long awaited family trip during the kids’ term break! But for now, our simple family get-together will do.
We attended the Church wedding of one of my former staff in Calaruega and Tagaytay City. Theirs was a love story that you could say beat all odds, and which conquered all. It was a plot that screamed telenovela, and I am happy that they could now claim their happy ending, although of course it is far from ending, as they have only just began. Best wishes to you my dears!
Us girls attended a birthday party over the weekend. I could tell you that, while I relish the bonding time, it is not easy to ferry two girls, one a hyperactive pre-schooler, without another adult to help you. Still, we, especially Maxine, enjoyed the party of Wincess, a little girl who lives down the street. My almost pre-teen reluctantly smiles and allows the obligatory photos, but immediately goes back to her phone after saying the perfunctory hellos.
We stayed for a week or so at Mico’s home in Quezon City. It was partly vacation, especially for the kids, and partly house sitting when Mico went out of town for a few days. He had new helpers and of course, wouldn’t want to leave the house at their disposal. So off we went. It was actually bliss because I haven’t had to get up early, cook, wash the dishes and do the laundry. However, it was a bit farther than the office, and traffic going to and fro was horrendous to say the least. It was still fun, though, while it lasted. And we were there to celebrate the day of Dads for this year. We decided to stay in, and order some Chinese.
