For the first time, I'm joining my good friend Mommy Chris' "Mommmy Moments" this week! The theme is all about birthdays. Birthdays are indeed very special moments to cherish and to celebrate God's goodness and faithfulness. My kids are always looking forward to celebrating their birthday every year. And here are some snapshots of our recent birthday celebrations...
Our Daughter's Fifth Birthday
Even though there was a nationwide brownout that day because of a typhoon and even though my little girl did not get her desired "Barbie" cake because it was temporarily phased out, we still managed to celebrate our sweet little daughter's 5th birthday at home. Oh, and she also got two awards that day - Best in Art and Best in Math & Science! Good job, my dear!
Our Son's Fourth Birthday
We first celebrated our son's 4th birthday this year with all our homeschool friends in the area. And on the day of his birthday, we went out as a family to a children's play house and restaurant called Fun Ranch. The kids had a blast!
And finally....My birthday!
Had an exquisite and sumptuous dinner with my family, and was serenaded by the restaurant's staff and crew that evening. What a lovely surprise! Loved it!
Thank you Lord for the precious birthday moments a mother like me will always cherish!
