Dear Father Time,

You’ve flown by so quickly that I could barely count my years on this Earth. My memory has never been so sharp about some aspects of my being, but I do remember enough to be grateful to dear Life. And no matter how tiresome most days have been, I do see the ironies, sequences and roundabouts of this carnival ride.

Warm regards,

Jette

Merry 2014!

On the days leading to Christmas eve, I was busy shopping for these and then some…

Well, except for Stuart… He was a gift from Rain.

Every Christmas, we typically attend mass on the 24th, before midnight. But this year was an exception. I had work so we had dinner early…

After dinner, Cara drove me to work and everyone came with… Mum, the hobbitses, Kat, and Ella.

They next day, the 25th, we attended mass at The Redemptorist Church.

Then we visited Dad’s older sister, Tita Edna, and family. I wasn’t able to take pictures with the cousins, shoot…! I was too preoccupied with trying not to be late for work… Next time, surely…

MissL turned 9 the previous Thursday. Now,  here’s a very brief visual recap of the 11.20.2014 happening… 20141120_165430

And fast forward to Saturday, she and MasterD went swimming with friends. The venue: Nature’s Village Resort in Talisay City. And yeah, I didn’t get to sleep. Truly. But that’s just the way it is.

come again…?

These past days, I’ve been busy with these…

20141109_125921

I made the purple piñata on the right using the same concept as when I made the lego piñata for MasterD’s birthday. Only, this time, I used one box for a smaller piñata, wrapped it in purple crepe paper, and glued print outs of Rarity on two sides of the box.

20141121_125809

And it’ s all for this little rascal…

20141120_165132

MissL just turned 9 today and we had cake and pasta at home just to mark the day. She and MasterD wants to go swimming with their friends, so that will be this coming weekend.

20141120_170242

Delighted to get more Trash Wheels…!

And Quino Cafe’s mini rainbow cake from Tita Kat, of course.

Honestly, I just started my new job like two weeks ago and am still in training. It’s been hectic and I’ve seriously thought of not going through with the mini party on Saturday. But a promise to my little hobbit is a promise that I’ll no doubt keep. I’m guessing there’ll be no sleep for me very soon as I’ve been working on night shifts and have to do errands for the picnic/party during mornings. I’ve basically been on flight mode these past days.

Anyway, celebration to be continued…

MasterD’s crazy over dinosaurs and legos and loves chocolate cake, fruit salad, and pasta…

20141018_151628

Because I love Calea’s chocolate cake and would not compromise taste when it comes to dessert, I simply sterilized MasterD’s miniature dinosaur and legos and topped them on the cake… et Voila!

Celebration to be continued…

photo bucket: of birthdays and time a-flying

Birthday, some look forward to thee, others may dread thee, but one thing is assured- Ye only move forwards and it is upon myself to look back and cherish the have-beens.

So… My grandmother, paternal, turned 75 last Thursday. And though she had a mini celebration at home, a special post celebration was in order.

And we had to dress up for the occasion!

MasterD

… had his First Communion last Wednesday.

Well, you might be wondering, First Communions, Baptisms, Confirmations, and the like are a bit of a big deal to most Filipino families.

MissL and I had been busy taking photos  of MasterD that we only managed to have very few of ours taken before the battery died.

This was taken at the mall after MasterD’s First Communion last Wednesday.

And yeah, I meant to post about about fashion stuff here, with the awards season in full swing. But, alas, I just couldn’t make time.. boohoo! And on a sidenote, today’s actually the highlight of the Sinulog Festival here in Cebu, so I try my darnedest to post, though not really about the festival. I had hoped to write about it here. But as we didn’t really take part in the revelry, I don’t have much to write about.  😦

Later…
