A special day for our boys!♥

by - May 28, 2013

Last May 17, our Athan celebrated his 5th birthday and they say when children celebrate their birthday, parents reach another milestone. True enough, Gersh and I feel very happy that Athan has grown up to be a fine boy. Hopefully it stays that way!;) 

Anyhoo, at the strike of 12 midnight, we excitedly handed him his birthday gift. We've seen kids go crazy over iPads or tablets and Athan has been wanting one for so long. If we're close friends and you've encountered Athan, then he would have most likely borrowed your phone or iPad for games. =P Sensing how much he loves playing games and he's at the right age, we got him his very own Nintendo DS. :)

Aside from that, he also got cool gifts from his grandmothers; a Nerf blaster and Sponge Bob TV game!:) All his dream gifts came true!

The afternoon of his birthday itself, my Mom treated us all to TGI Fridays at the Fort and the sweet crew of Fridays sang our little boy a very energetic happy birthday song!:)

Since May 17 was a Friday, it would be kind of hard to ask people to attend a party due to everyone being busy with their work or school. So, the Hubby and I decided to do Athan's Birthday Party and Asher's Christening on a Sunday- May 19...

The baptismal took place in the morning at Our Lady of Fatima, Sta. Mesa and I would just like to thank my good friends, Marga, Keigh and Isay for making it. I know it's hard to wake up so early on a Sunday, but thank you for making it to the church!^_^

We decided to stray away from the typical all white ensemble, so he wore his jumper from SM Babies. :) Welcome to the Christian world, Asher!

Come afternoon, we all headed to The Racks at El Pueblo, Ortigas to celebrate Athan and Asher's day. :) We had a cowboy or ranch theme, so Athan was a cowboy and we dressed up Asher as a cow! hehe!^_^

We had games for the kiddies, yummy food, candle blowing on the awesome cupcake tower and the adults got to join in the fun as well! This is also the first occasion of the kids where I got to have my blog friends around. :)

I can't believe Athan is 5 years old. I miss the time when he was still a baby, but him turning a year older is also a good thing. At least he's happy and we know we're doing the right thing for him. :)

I wanna thank the people who made time to attend the special day of our boys. I know Sunday is rest day and family day, but thank you for spending it with us. :) Truly appreciate the love!
