Jasmine's Big Day

Aloha! Talofa! Mabuhay! Maayong adlaw! Gruss Gott! Ni Hao! Our wishes are that this little post finds you well!

Well, It’s been a long since I last wrote here. I hope things have been keeping well for you!

Last week was Jasmine’s birthday. She’s 7 now! Time really does fly; it seems like just yesterday our princess was a tiny little baby! Even hubby commented about how much she’s grown, and how he kind of misses when she was a baby!

The princess in all her 7 year old Glory!

Hubby took some time off from work, as he’s been going non-stop for a couple months now, and we celebrated her big day! Friday hubby cooked up 4 big racks of his world famous smoked ribs. I cooked so much, pancit, lumpia, rice, and all the usual dishes. Our friends brought over lots of food on Saturday and everyone proceeded to greet the princess!

The party lasted into the evening with talking, singing, dancing, and CAKE! Of course, no birthday party can be complete without a big colorful cake. This year Jasmine chose to have a Tangled theme, and the cake was no exception. She got some great gifts from some great people, for which she was so happy! Our friends really made her day special, and the kids really had some fun. She even got a real guitar! Look for the little rock star soon! Our friend Michelle came over early on Saturday and helped cook and she pampered Jasmine, getting her hair done and so on. Later that evening Michelle entertained us all with her singing. She has such a great talent for making you feel like She did the song originally, her voice is incredible, and she has way of making everyone laugh that brought so much life to the party.

Then it was back to life as normal. Hubby was back at work, Jasmine to school, and of course, I went back to being mommy and honey-ko. Things returned almost too quickly to normal, but with Halloween and Thanksgiving, and Christmas to go, things are going to be busy soon!

Last night hubby took Jasmine to a local Halloween party, and they had so much fun. My friends were there, too, so everyone got a chance to reminisce and something to think about for the weekend. Today is another big Halloween party, so we’re going and I’m sure hubby will get some more of his great shots, for my blogs and for his.

Monday will be another fun time, with trick or treating and a great time with our friends again. We can’t wait!

His photography’s getting really good, folks are asking about him teaching a photo class, offering to pay him for portraits, and just sharing their love of photography with him. He does his blog almost every day, he says it’s good to share his love with others, and it helps him unwind after a busy day. Check out his blog, it will make you think, help you learn photography, and give some information on the local area, too! Hohenfels Volks Photo club, THE place for Our Place.

To everyone who attended, and all those who sent their greetings to our princess, THANK YOU! Thank you to Virgie Werner and her family, Nanay Margaret who cooked so much, Joyce, Michelle, Melith and Jim, Angie, Cherry, Maria and Joe, Monica, Bob, Joy-Joy, Anna Beth, Ryan, Kayana, Bidek, and everyone else. It wasn’t hubby’s ribs or my pancit that made her birthday so special, it was your wishes and greetings. Your friendship and help really made this day special for her! Thanks again!

Here are some pics of the fun we've had over the last week.


Such a magnificent group of ladies!
