They don’t accept cake order

The nephew will be celebrating his first birthday on Christmas day. We have two more days to complete the things we need for the little birthday party. We are almost done with the preparations. It was very tiring but fun experience. Yesterday, we went to Goldilocks to order a cake, but unfortunately they don’t accept orders on this month for the reason that their factory is a bit busy for the holidays. We went to Red Ribbon but they have the same reason. Smiley These two bread factory are famous in the city and they have bulks of orders during Christmas season. This is the disadvantage when the birthday falls on the month of December I guess.

We went home sad because we are not able to order birthday from Goldilocks. We will try again to another bread factory and I hope that there is bread factory that is not busy to accept out orders. I am crossing my fingers because the cake is very important to complete the birthday celebration of my nephew. Sad but we are hoping for the best. However, we can still buy cake on his birthday but without the decorations that we want. They can only put the happy birthday greetings. I think it is better than nothing. Next year we will order to make sure we have the birthday cake that we want. Smiley

Selecting photos for the nephew’s tarpaulin

In two weeks time, the family is going to celebrate the first birthday of my nephew.  Because he is the first baby of my sister, the family is very much excited.   The nephew’s birthday is on December 25, 2011, that makes the sister and I a bit busy in the preparation.  This week, we are busy on selecting photos to put in the tarpaulin.  I thought selecting photos are easy, but it’s not because I have to consider that theme and the color of the tarpaulin that my sister wants.  Plus the photos of my nephews are too cute that makes the selections difficult…Smiley

I have four days left to finalize my photos selection.  I hope I can do it fast because the sister is a bit excited. Smiley I understand my sister’s feeling right now because she wanted the best for her son’s day.  And she wanted all things to be done a week before the event.  I am doing my best to finish things so that we can relax waiting for my nephew’s  big day.


Didn’t show up

The sister is expecting a visitor on her birthday that is why she prepared foods for them. They are close friends and some relatives. It was just a simple one because sister is on a tight budget. She was very excited waiting them to arrived because they messaged her that they will come. Hours went by and no one shows up on her doorstep. And she is receiving messages in her phone telling her that they wont be able to come. I can see the disappointment look on my sister’s face. To the rescue, I comforted her and talk to her that no reason to be sad because the family is here to celebrate with her. And family is more important above all things. I am glad I am able to cheer her up and we have a wonderful birthday celebration.

Her visitors did not show up on her birthday makes my sister sad and said she will not invite them I know it is not a good attitude and I understand her uttering those words because she is disappointed. It is really frustrating waiting for someone who will not come. I know the feeling of waiting for nothing. I just wish that the friendship they have will not be affected of them not showing up on her birthday. My sister deserves an explanation and that is what she is waited to her from them.

Five more months

It seems like it was yesterday when my sister gave birth to her first baby. Now the baby is seven months old. We have seen him growing so fast and seen the development every day. And also the baby can no perform the ‘close open’ fingers. Five more months and this baby will celebrate his first birthday. Call me an excited aunt because I am excited and counting the days, hours, minutes, seconds and the like till the big event. I say big event because my nephew’s birthday falls on Christmas day.

To others five months is still far to think about what to do on his first birthday and the budgeting. But to my sister it’s not since times flies so fast nowadays. That is why as early as this my sister wants to plan everything for her son’s big day. She wants it a simple and memorable birthday for her son. As usual, yours truly is always there to give my help, support and assistance. As I am an excited aunt, I want to be a part of the preparation. I just wish that my suggestion and presence is of a big help. Doing the preparation is never easy, so I am trying my best to help my sister.

Singing Happy Birthday

Each day, I always sings happy birthday to my nephew. My nephew just listens to me every time I sing. He will be turning two next week. Times really flies so fast, I can’t believe that the baby that I babysit is now turning two years old. It tells only one thing, I am growing This morning I am surprised because I heard him singing happy birthday to himself. Though the lyrics are not clear I know it is happy birthday because he is mentioning his name and he can pronounce the last syllable of the birthday word which is the ‘day’. It is so cute hearing him singing for himself. He doesn’t have any idea at all that it will be his big day that we are going to celebrate. Not planning for a birthday party though, just a simple dinner with the whole family. I wish to give him even a simple birthday party for him to have fun with his friends but I cannot for now. I can make it up next time I pray. Happy birthday my dearest nephew, wish you all the best and good health always.
