A week ago, we celebrate the 63rd birthday of my father in law. We ate lunch outside at an eat all you can restaurant. Our family had a great time as we spent our family bonding together. June has lots of birthdays to celebrate with since it was my mom’s birthday and my birthday month as well. We just hope that soon all of us could celebrate our birthdays together. Celebrating another year of God’s extension of our life is worthy to be thankful with as we celebrate the joy of life together with our dear family.

The young people from our church made a surprise Mañanita serenade on the eve of my hubby’s birthday that happened yesterday. They came to our house at 4 am, my hubby was still wide awake at that time and he was surprise when they sang some of his favorite songs and of course the jolly birthday song.
Mañanita, by definition is a serenade done on the eve of someone’s birthday while Las Mañanitas is a traditional Mexican song that is sung on birthdays and other important holidays. It is often sung as an early morning serenade to wake up a loved one. At birthday parties it is sung before the cake is cut. We are not familiar with the Las Mañanitas song that’s why we just prefer to sing my hubby’s favorite songs.
My hubby looks like he’s removing some morning star from his eyes…hahaha! but he was actually touch and he’s happy for what they did. I think all of us will be happy if someone’s serenading you specially on your birthday since you feel that you are being loved and you are special to them.
We have been practicing this Mañanita serenade a few months ago every time when somebody celebrates his or her birthday. We usually bring hot breads such as pandesal or monay and also bring some 3 in one coffee so all of us could share and enjoy the happiness together with the birthday celebrant.

The first and most important step to a hosting a child’s birthday party is to get your child involved in the planning. Even very young children can help choose the theme of the party and help select the guests. As your child ages, he or she will play an even bigger role in the planning of their party.
Begin by asking your child about the theme of the party. Remember, your idea for what makes a great party is not necessarily going to be the same as your child’s idea, after all, it is your child’s party. Next, let your child help choose which friends will be invited.
The next step is to choose a day and time and to send out the invitations. As your child ages, let them fill out the party information. Eventually, your child will be able to complete this process from start to finish.Allow your child to help decide what treats to serve at the party.
Birthday parties are an important part of your child’s life. Almost every adult can remember birthdays from their youth. While it’s not difficult to host a successful birthday party, it does take planning. Just remember to include your child in as much of the planning as possible. This way it truly is your child’s party.
