The Month of the Heart of Winter

the new leaf of January is my Month!

the big sixty!

I don’t have the luxury of time right now to write a lengthy post, so, I would try to give a little detail of the happy photos you’ll find in here. 🙂

Cute cupcakes I ordered from Tita Lenn’s Yummies. I asked them to make 60 pieces to complement the big sixty theme.

Lovely cake which I asked Tita Lenn’s to customize, it’s just an 8’ round cake which became the topper of my cupcake tower. (I intentionally did not post the picture of the whole cake here after my dear baby B stepped on one side of it, hay!)

Unique isn’t it? Our guests cannot help but asked many times where did I order it.

Everyone enjoyed their cupcake as it doesn’t taste so sweet, even its frosting. 🙂

The General’s Lechon was present again this time.

One of Nanay’s specialty (actually her first attempt), which I didn’t even get to taste.

Before the party started Nanay’s favorite grandchildren profess in writing their happy birthday greetings.

Gian Paolo

Samantha Angela Marie

and Beatrice aka our Bea 😀

It’s a tradition in our house that before everyone gets a plate and get served, the food must be blessed. Kap. Bobby leads the thanksgiving prayer.

Countless photo ops followed,

Nanay with her apos 😀

He has to have his solo photo; he requested it this time 🙂

with Kap. Bobby and wife

Nanay and Tatay both seniors now

and with all the people who helped Nanay prepared the spread this day.

Everyone sings happy birthday after, then the customary cake blowing.

Nanay blowing her single candle after making a short pause, I wonder what was your wish Mother Dear?

And the feast began.

The people who went to celebrate with us were overflowing despite the fact that it was raining the whole time.

We were blessed with wonderful people around who took time to greet the celebrator.

Family (Tatay and Nanay with the one and only Uncle we dub)

Friends (Nanay with her former colleague in the academe, my fomer Social Studies teacher –Mrs. Penaflorida)

Nanay gets a little emotional with my surprise online greetings, with members of our family in photo holding the happy birthday sign. It could have been more remarkable if everyone complied on my very simple request. Hay! Anyway, to make the slide longer I picked some of Nanay’s best photos and put a little storyline on it. I hope it doesn’t give her a heavy heart after all. 🙂

The party ended so late because there were late comers nonetheless we’re thankful for their being there. 🙂
