Kro (pronounced as kee-roh) is one year old already. Complete name, Kevin Kichiro.
We just had a simple celebration, just the family and a niece. It is hard times now, but I know my little one didn’t mind… we had enjoyed every minute of it. It was something like this…
1 kilo spaghetti – 165.00
1 kilo fried chicken – 105.00
Birthday cake – 388.55
Balloon – 20.00
Hat – free
Loving memories – PRICELESS!!!!
This was a birthday on a budget. It’s not how much you spend, it’s the thought that counts. I just cooked what everybody wants to eat. Fried chicken and spaghetti. They said i make the best spaghetti, but i disagree though because I love Jollibee’s spaghetti more than my spaghetti… lol.
What’s a birthday without a cake, of course, so I bought the family’s favorite, chocomoist cake… yuuuuuuummmmy… =D. Fortune Bakeshop have the best chocomoist cake for me, really good. It cost 409.00 but I had a 5% discount, they give discount to certain card holders, and merrcury drug suki cardholders are one of those. The cashier there also gave an icing flower as a gift =), sweet of her.
The balloons were a last minute addition, I saw it in my neighbor’s house, they had displayed balloons near their door and I asked them if it was for sale, they said yes, so i bought some, I know how Kro loved balloons. When i came home I showed it to him and he was like… all smiles, really wide smile. So i put it up where he won’t be able to reach it, but he was standing below it and keeps on pointing to it, so daddy took it and gave it to him so he can play with it, he popped out two of it, so when it was time for singing the birthday song and eating, there were only two balloons left…lol
The candles, those were starburst twinkling candles, I have been saving it for occasions like this (for a long time now). Nobody blew the candles because we were kind of watching how it’ll burst…lol… it did but just a little hahaha.
And to really perfect everything, i made a birthday hat especially for him… lol.. well more like a pirate hat, from a magazine and put it on his head, he was cute.
Oh, there’s also one thing that was really grand on that day. At waltermart where we did our grocery, before buying the foods that we need, my husband and kro went to this arcade, for rides, he love those car rides. So while my husband was putting tokens, he saw on the floor a crumpled 500.00, he looked around to see if anybody was behind him, but there was none… and we kind of stayed a little longer to see if somebody would come looking for a 500 bill, but there was none too. Kind of lucky. Was that a gift from above? Knowing that we dont have that much these days. When we went back to the car I said out loud thank you Lord!
How fast time flies… it’s like a moment ago he was here in my arms, sleeping, then the next he’s always on the floor, busy crawling, then walking, and now he’s one year old. My baby boy is becoming a little boy =(. I know, i should be happy, but it feels like i want time to just stop for a little more while, I want to hold him more longer. I am dreading that day when I will be waking up and all of my kids are gone, with their own family living in their own house.
This is his favorite car, my tupperware… lol
I pray that God will always bless and protect you. I pray that you grow up to be a God fearing person, that you’ll walk in the right path. And that your life will be a blessing unto others. May God’s hand be upon you always. May you desire the wisdom that comes from God. I love you baby… happy birthday.
