Mother's Day 2012 and Jaoey's 10th Birthday

Had a double celebration at home last Sunday, May 13 -- a celebration of Mother's Day and an advanced celebration of Jaoey's 10th Birthday.

We were up early last Sunday morning to greet our mom and right after breakfast, we handed our gifts to her. :)

Jaoey also wanted to open his gifts, but since it's still a day earlier than his actual birthday, being the bully sisters that we are, Gia and I insisted that he can open only his gifts come 12am. :p  We saw him curling up in bed crying so we finally made him open his gifts haha! :p

We had to try to get him to have his picture taken before opening his gifts. He was a bit mad at first, but after a few tries he finally gave in.

He just got back to his happy mood when he started unwrapping his gifts.

Daddy already cooked a few dishes in the morning and continued with the rest of the dishes after lunch.  And come dinner time, the feast began!

And since it's mommy's and Jaoey's day, daddy of course cooked their favorites. :)

We usually start with our feast at 5pm up until guests are still present, so we always include merienda dishes in our menu.

Some guests also stay up for some drinks and so viands which also make good pulutans are also always included. :)
