Martha’s Turning 6!

Martha has been counting down to her birthday since February and now it is only two weeks away! She really wants a party – specifically a ballet (barbie princess) party – and already has listed all the things she wants to receive as gifts. So if you are planning to send a monogrammed gift, please make sure it is pink and girly, because that is what Martha is into these days.

So far, all I have ever accomplished is order her cake (have talked with the supplier and she has yet to give me a working design). I have also inquired at possible places I can take her – Club Princess is a great probability. As for her gift wishlist, I can easily get them as soon we have money :P

Wow, my girl is turning SIX! Time flies!

Feed the Fishies


I snapped this picture yesterday when my Edil and the kids were feeding the fishes at the Nuvali park. I can’t help but be amazed by how tall my son has become – a year or two from now, when they face wall mirrors I am sure he will be taller than his Dad already. All the signs of puberty are slowly manifesting themselves.
