I can’t remember the last time we attended a kiddie birthday party! Our own babies are all grown up, and most of our friends’ children are all grown up too.. comes with our age group! :P So it was refreshing to attend a kiddie party the other day for what you call a last minute baby! ;))
I just LOVE this attention to details! <3
Leah did a good mommy job!
With the very cute & young-looking, very bubbly mommy and the ever helpful & ever gracious kuya Paolo. <3
Dapper was the theme, so naturally Leah provided cute bow-ties to the men whom she KNEW will not come as requested haha! :P
And she was right too! Mga naka-shorts lang ang daddies. Hay! @_@
The very festive ballroom of Palms Country Club.
The ever-present photo booth, which of course we took advantage of. Repeatedly haha!!!
Kyle’s Candy Corner
And the not-to-be-missed Loot Bag table!!! <3
What the kids LIVE for.
A last minute baby is what I fondly call babies made after the age of 40 haha (although I think Leah is only NEARING 40). It seems to be the trend nowadays. I know of people who, after a considerable length of time, and with grown kids, suddenly “forget” to take the necessary precautions thinking they’re “safe” na, only to find a (beautiful) surprise 9 months later. :)
Don’t get me wrong. If the “bank” was still open for me I’d definitely go for it too! I love the smell of brand new babies. And how they make you feel that you’re the center of their universe, all clingy & cuddly. Too bad I can’t have any now, especially as my own kids are starting to have lives of their own. Thank goodness for Jela! ;P
Jojo & Leah were so gracious to invite us to little Kyle’s 1st birthday party even though we didn’t have age-appropriate kids to bring to the occasion haha.
The “dapper” dads! ;P My hunnybun & Jojo.
Kap’s wednesday tennis buds.
The nibblers before the main meal..
I LOVE “STREET” FOOD!!! <3 <3 <3
My gals. Eileen & Leah. I just love these 2 gorgeous ladies to death!!! <3
and yay!! I finally got to me the lovely Cai who reads my blog but never comments haha. Hi, Cai!! :-*
The yummy spread..
My happy plate 1! ;)
My happy plate 2! ;)
Gosh, the games the host played made me feel so OLD! @_@ Used to be, I can answer all disney trivia thrown my way. Now, I get confused which disney song belongs to s specific tale. Yes, I’m THAT old now, sigh.
Even the oldies weren’t spared from the games..
(It was name the 70’s song & singer for us. Kuya namaaaannnnnn!!! @_@)
Which earned Gerard’s boy, Zion, A table full of prizes to bring home! <3
I think this was my favorite part of the show. The host was HILARIOUS!!!
He kept even us oldies in stitches with his crazy antics! ;P
Happy happy birthday, Kyle!!!
Lotsa love to you, on this special day.
May these moments of smiles & joy grow year after year.
Here’s wishing you, dear cute & cuddly baby, a 1-derful birthday!!!
We Love you, Kyle!!! <3
