Happy Birthday, Love!
The months of June and July have always been the most interesting months in the calendar because the birthdays of all 3 of us fall in between them.
Like yesterday, the "commotion" at the front door for a birthday surprise was for me. Today the surprise was for Wifey.
I stopped by Prima Deli on my way back from work to buy her the birthday cake. I had to buy bags of groceries too at NTUC Supermarket to "hide" the surprise bag away from her attention because I know that she will open the front door for me.
Passed by Sonny room and gave a "secret" knock on his door as I entered my gym room. Sonny came out and followed me to set candles on the cake. He also already had the cigarette lighter with him.
Sonny bought a beautiful bouquet of flowers to surprise his mother too. In the bouquet were 3 red roses surrounded by white flowers and baby's breath. A wonderful gift, I think.
The last bouquet he gave her for Mother's Day is still looking fresh in the fridge.
While Wifey was preparing dinner for us, Sonny surprised her with his flowers. I think Wifey was expecting a cake but not another bouquet. Sonny made his mother so happy.
We led her to the living room where the lighted cake was waiting for her. As usual, I was armed with my camera to capture the special moment from this family as we sang her a birthday song.
Yesterday was a chocolate birthday cake for me. Today is a fresh fruit birthday cake for Wifey.
The coming weekend is already set to culminate all celebration of birthdays of my family. We intend to watch a movie - preferably Transformers if we can still get the tickets and then a scrumptious dinner to top it all of.
Camping is in the cards, but I think we will be too tired out after the celebrations. We will see.
This week has been great, we are going to make the weekend amazing too!
