It was one of the most awaited occasions for The Hubby and I - the day our son turns a year old. It's a milestone for my little boy, and at the same time an accomplishment for us parents. It means we have survived a year of sleepless nights, dancing in the wee hours of dawn or driving around the village in our pajamas at 3am!
But more than reminiscing the sacrifices we've endured, we are celebrating the joy of having a child to love, to hold, and to cherish for the rest of our lives. Someone to make our home warmer, brighter and noisier!
Because we are thankful to the good Lord for blessing us with a healthy, handsome little boy, we decided to share the joyous event with the children of Tahanan ng Pagmamahal orphanage. I originally planned to take the kids at Enoe's birthday bash at Palladium but another group has already booked the kids on that weekend.
Anyway, Enoe's party at the orphanage was a simple sharing of food - the usual spaghetti, barbecue, hotdog on stick, fried chicken and cake. Simple as it was, it was a great experience for my children especially my little girl. I want her to appreciate how lucky she is to have Mommy and Daddy.
Then on the weekend after his actual natal day, we held a simple celebration at Palladium Clubhouse where our usual set of relatives and friends came to party with us.
As usual, the preparation part was done solely by me. In a way it is good because I don't need to consult anyone before making any purchases. But the downside is I was tired to the bone as I had to assemble even the lootbags, create the balloon decors and pick up the cakes and cupcakes from the baker.
We hired clowns to entertain the kids by doing magic shows, bubble tricks and many more. It was fun watching kids and adults participate in the bubble show.
Happy Birthday dear Enoe! May you grow up to be God-fearing, loving and obedient boy. We love you to bits!
