Even though we had already agreed that the sendoff party was also our celebration of mom's birthday, we (hubby, yours truly, Dipdip, and the nanny) went to Compostela to celebrate with grandmother.
We're the only ones who are available on that day since my brother already returned to Abu Dhabi while everyone else (including dad) has already returned home for the next day's work. And so, we just brought with us a cake, lola cooked two or three dishes, and my aunt prepared macaroni salad.
Well, I can't show a lot of pictures because my camera was showing symptoms of A.D.D. again :-)
Here, Dipdip faces her grand lola who also wished we lived nearby so she can always see us around...
When afternoon came, we didn't forget to go to the cemetery to bring flowers and light some candles for mom.
Well, I think mom's birthday looked like it was Diane Pauline's day because she became the center of attention and amused everyone (including her parents, ahem!).
