It’s January, Let’s celebrate

The month of January is one of the important months in the family. These events are listed in my phone and it will remind me when the day comes. Four members of the family will celebrate their birthday and wedding anniversary of my sister and her husband. January 7 is my niece 10th birthday, January 16 is my nephew’s 2nd birthday, January 22 is my older brother’s 42nd birthday, January 23 is the 4th wedding anniversary of my sister and BIL, and January 24 is my birthday. Yes, it’s my birth month and thanks the Lord God for another year of life’s blessings. In case you wonder, I purposely did not put my age because I want to keep it secret. But I will give you a hint; I am not getting any younger.LOL

Anyways, January is a big celebration in the family because of the five events that we have. No big plan ahead because we are on a tight budget. Just like before, we will be having a simple celebration with the family and some invited relatives, neighbours and friends. First stop is a double birthday celebration of the niece and nephew so we can save.haha! We did the same thing last year though. It would be a double birthday celebration of my brother and me too. The wedding anniversary is different celebration. We do not know yet of the sister’s plan. Maybe a simple dinner with the family at home.

Photo cards for his birthday

In three months time, the nephew will turns three years old.  Time flies really fast nowadays.  Seems like it was just yesterday when I held him on my arms.  The nephew is getting bigger and older.  His birthday last year was so simple.  I just bought balloons and cake for him.  My brother make a big tarpaulin with his name, photos and the happy birthday greetings for him.  Just a simple celebration for him.  We invited some of his friends in the neighbor to celebrates with us.  This year I wanted to give him a small party once again.  Since we still have the tarpaulin last year, I thought of ordering photo cards on his birthday.  Something that we could give to his visitors and also a sort of remembrance to his friends.  I will order personalized photo cards for his birthday at the store where personalized holiday cards are made.  I am pretty sure that this year’s birthday celebration of the nephew will be a memorable one for him.

Happy that she turns seven

I started teaching Ronna in doing the dishes at the age of eight years old.  I want her to become a responsible person when he grows up.  Every time I teach her, Ella always watching and sometimes asked me if she can help.  I am not allowing her because she is younger than Ronna.  I told her that I will teach her when she reach the age of eight.  While Ronna is doing the dishes, Smiley  I asked Ella to sweep the floor so that she won’t bother Ronna.  She is a very helpful girl compared to Ronna but I cannot allow her to help because Ronna gets mad when Ella is around.  Though they are friends, sometimes they fight when Ella is messing with her.

January 7, 2012 is the birthday of Ella and she turns seven.  I was preparing the salad when she come near to me and whispered “isa nalang kulang”, which means one more year she will turn eight.   I am surprised because she remembers what I told her.  She is indeed a good girl to remember it and reminded me.  She is not only happy that it is her birthday but also happy that she is seven and one more year she will do the dishes.  I am happy with my nieces and I pray that they will be a better person when they grow up.

Loved by Kids

I have attended several children parties already.  Every time I am invited, I bring with me my nieces so that they too can enjoy since it is a children’s party, the party that I didn’t experience back when I was still young.  I do not want them to experience the same so I always bring them with me every time I am invited to kids’ birthday party.  I am happy to see them enjoying and having fun at the party.  They meet lots of kids that are very helpful for them to not be so shy.  In a way it is the best way to start socialization.

What I saw mostly at the party are the clowns who are  kids entertainers.  I am amazed of their patience in entertaining the kids and give the enjoyment in the party.  There are kids who are not that cooperating and have tantrums especially the celebrant, still they are able to manage in motivating the kids to be cooperative.  They are so loved by kids I must say.   I am thinking of surprising my nieces with a birthday party one day.  I would love to see them happy and entertained on their special day.
