It's Gen's birthday and we had a very simple celebration for us only and our relatives in our compound including of course my brother's family. I can't invite many as I'm the only one who will prepare and cook everything. I took a halfday leave from office and on my way going back to house I did all the shopping including of course my kids' favorite - the birthday cake! I only cooked spaghetti and ordered barbeque and that's it!
Upon arriving from school Gen and Ruth were happy to see me cooking the pasta and excitedly looked on the dedication written on the cake. Kids are really like that - they are always excited over simple things! They easily find happiness on small things and I appreciate their nice attitude! I want them to grow up appreciating every little nice thing that comes their way.
When my kuya's family arrived my kids began playing with them as if they had never seen each other for a long time, they missed each other very much! Though Raph and May (the elder kids of my brother) were not there the younger ones were such happy playmates. They also love the cake. Here's sharing some pics of us!
