Enzo's 1st Birthday!

At last! Enzo's birthday is finally done! And here is my little monkey!

The little monkey is looking so happy with everyone calling his name... I guess he doesn't mind being with a lot of people, unlike some kids. good thing, cause if not, he must be crying the whole time during the event...

can't believe that he is a monkey... we initially planned on getting a lion costume, which apparently is more expensive as compared with this one...

He started to take strides at 10 months... and now he can walk without support. The disadvantage is that he doesn't want us carrying him anymore and he also leans down to pick up anything that he sees his way...

Before the event
I was actually in the state of panic last Sunday when I woke up at 6am to the sound of the pouring rain... I was praying hard for the rain to stop cause I was too afraid that no one will be able to make it if the weather goes from worse to worst. Fortunately, the rain subsided at around 10 in the morning. 

I was able to follow the itinerary of activities that I have prepared for the day. We went to the Church at 8am to hear mass, then we went straight to a local Supermarket for some small errands.

We had a very beautiful party last Sunday. Though there were teensy weensy bits of problem, it was nothing that we were not able to handle with flying colors... Party was held in Shakey's Muntinlupa and I would highly recommend you guys to come and check out the branch if you are thinking of celebrating it the Shakey's way like we did...

Truly a great place...=D

First stop, I would like to commend the very wonderful staff of Shakey's Muntinlupa headed by the Restaurant Manager June Joco who has helped in every way he can to make the party a success. We did not get an external supplier for the most part of the party and all of the decorations that we had were DIY, a labor of love from Daddy Jon.

Guys I would like to commend all the staff for the exceptional service that they have provided, indeed I am one satisfied client.

Irene Tubasco was our party host, and she did an amazing job during the party. Needless to say that she was the reason behind the high energy we all had during the party. There were no dull moments during the party and she kept everyone on their feet with the games she spearheaded. 

That's her in the picture...

We started off with a prayer...

Everyone actually worked hand in hand for the success of the event and I am truly grateful...

Kudos to all the staff including Milcah Pineda, Kisses Santos (she was the person who has helped us resolve the problem with the schedule, very accommodating!), Yuan Trejano, Kim Choel, Minerva Haboc.

Meet Miss Irene...

And the Restaurant Manager Sir June Joco also helped out with the serving... =)

Everyone was pretty satisfied with the food and there was plenty for everyone... One thing though, me and hubby forgot to eat... LOL!

Surely, a person like him comes in handy in these times... So proud of my hubby! =D Love you Dad! I bet, years from now, Enzo will be as proud as I am...
