Jump for Joy

Finally, after a long wait, Francis celebrated his 7th birthday. He was the happiest boy yesterday. We celebrated his birthday twice, first in school bringing 17 pcs of Jollibee spaghetti with chicken of February 17 (his actual birthday), second was yesterday at Jollibee Molino. It was a success! So many friends, neighbors and classmates - Francis jumped for joy seeing them all!

I will post some photos tomorrow.

Personalized Birthday Invitation

Day by day, my son kept on pestering me for his birthday invitation to give to his classmates. He counted his classmates and came back with me with figures : 15 classmates plus teachers.

I told our graphic artist to prepare a personalized Transformer with Optimus Prime. He printed it on a waterbased vinyl sticker with laminating film to give a glossy look. Nice and perfect!

Francis Invites:

He printed 2 copies initially just to stop the complaint I am getting from the celebrant. But the moment I arrived home and showed the kids the invites - I was in a bigger problem! Christoph was complaining why he is not in the invitation. Huh? I was like hey, its not your birthday Christoph.. bla bla bla.. as usual some crying sessions with him.. So to make the story short.. John created another invitation for his classmates and friends. He just added Alexa in the pic as she might raise some issues.. lol..

Christoph + Alexa version:

How about my version? and daddy too.. lol..

Party Giveaways

I have been in the look out for a perfect giveaways that would fit the beneficiaries at the same time my budget (most important). But with the current problems and pressure I have in the business, I dont have the energy and nerves to go to Divisoria to source for prizes and giveaways. I just relied in Facebook and Multiply suppliers with a few visits too at Girltalk and Femalenetwork.

Luckily I found in Facebook Handicrafts Atbp and right there and then, I made up my mind! I tried inquiring and she responded right away. After a few exchange of messages, we finally agreed and bingo.. I booked 42 pcs of kiddie stools, paid 70% as downpayment. Now I will just wait for the day when to pick up the giveaways. Its a big relief.

Below is the sample of the kiddie stools. I must admit I like this theme (Animal Safari or something) better  but the birthday celebrant prefers Transformer so Transformer it is!  The giveaways will  be in Transformer design. Hello, Optimus Prime and Bumble Bee. See you on February 15.

Last year, the giveaways were  pouches with crayons, pencils, and other stuff and we only celebrated in their school classroom and in the warehouse for our friends and relatives.  I cant find any photos as I just reformat my lappy  and transfered all old photos either in USB or in the external hard drive.

Francis 5th Birthday Giveaways: lunch bag bought at eBay Philippines

Francis  4th birthday giveaways: Bean bags from Carmela Fe of GT

Francis 3rd birthday giveaways: pillows bought at  Market Market

I cant remember the giveaways for his 2nd and 1st birthday party.

My kids are party animals.. :)

View From Sofitel

This photo is taken by daddy last Sunday when he attended the wedding of Jlo at the Sofitel.

While looking at the photos, I was surprised to see some birds flying in this breathtaking sunset view.

Kids Art: Family Portrait

One evening, we arrived home at around 6:00 PM stressed out and tired. The moment we entered the gate, Francis approached me and handed me over his project in school - our Family portrait, our family picture frame.

I must admit I was not in a good mood at that time but the moment I saw his project, I couldnt help but hug him so tight.. and said.. I love you Francis.. He then replied "I love you too Mommy.."

I am so proud of my son. My kids.. they are God's blessings to me..
