Dipdip's first birthday celebration was a "simple celebration" like we wanted it to be. It was in fact a belated birthday celebration because it had to be celebrated the day after her birthday. Her birthday fell on a Friday and so we thought it would be convenient for the attendees to celebrate it on a Saturday. The nanny and I took Dipdip to church on her birthday, though, to thank God for giving Dipdip good health. On the other hand, her father was sick for 3 days. He had fever which was secondary to tonsilitis - thanks to her sister's chocolates hehe (I'll write about my sister-in-law and her hubby who arrived from Norway in my future posts). Thankfully, hubby was out of bed on Saturday.
The birthday celebration turned out well. This may well be just a first first birthday celebration since my in-laws will also be celebrating Dipdip's first birthday with them along with other special occasions within the family to celebrate. So, for the record, there's a second first birthday celebration in the works - this time, it will be courtesy of my in-laws.
Yes, technically, my in-laws weren't there during the birthday celebration but they really helped us out with the celebration because they had to lend us some utensils that we could use for that occasion. Also, it was Stephen's uncle, who is now starting to do a little food catering business as his sideline job, who cooked the food for us. My side of the family really loved the foods that uncle prepared for them. Hubby's sister also sponsored for the drinks.
Sadly, I didn't have quite a few good pictures to show because they weren't the best of quality. Hubby borrowed the Sony handycam from his father which was a present Papa got from his son-in-law from Norway. Unfortunately, Stephen didn't quite know yet how to handle the little gadget.So, anyway here are the pictures. If you notice any clear shots, they're not from the handycam. It's from my injured Canon camera. :-). Thank you, Canon.
Dipdip was lucky two have two birthday cakes - one from her Tita Freda (my first cousin) and one from Tita Cat, Tito J, and Rome!
Here's a picture of Dipdip's birthday dress that her Tita Jenn gave her.
Nice piece of artwork, right? :-)
Here's another picture with the red dress; this time, she's with her Tita Helen.
Overall, it was a wonderful celebration with dad and a few of our relatives and friends. We are also looking forward to celebrate with my in-laws in Talisay as well.
