No lootbags required, just a cake !

I can still  remember when I used to prepare for  my kids' birthdays.  It was supposed to be fun for them and for me.  For weeks, I would  go crazy on decorations, loot bags etc.  Every year will be a different theme - movie night, Chuckee Cheese, swim party. You name it , I did it!   My teenage boys still remember them up to this day.

Here's what our FLAG volunteers do to prepare for our birthdays.  As we are a small school ( for now) , it doesn't  take a village to have the community share the chores around our small church.  No machinery required!

After all, we have something special to prepare for.  We are celebrating 2 birthdays in October.  A board, some markers, some balloons and a lot of creativity, we are ready for a PARTY!

Great Job !!!

Our Birthday girls - Chrisdel and Faith

Pansit, ice cream, bread

For our girls who didn't celebrate their birthdays in the past, this is a treat.  I can just imagine how they must be feeling that day.  No fancy lootbags, no frills, no elaborate decorations. 

Thank you for all the blessings, the girls praying before their meal

After a long week of emails, voicemails, meetings,  this is what I get to see at the end of the day.  It makes it all worth it. 

Thank you for stopping by !

Hugs from,
