Celebration!

Lots of celebration in the month of february for me. Mother's day in Norway, Valentines Day and birthdays. So calorie intakes had been on top. Oh my! 

Last celebration I attended until now was my older sister's birthday. And when it comes to cooking and decorating, she is the best. Just take a look!

                            Meet my sister Lourdes! The lady in pink.

 And the first visitors: My youngest daughter and me. Guess who is the prettiest? The youngest of course:)

 And since it is love month, she decorated a love table for in love couples. It seems that no one were in love. This place remained empty the rest of the night:)

Featuring the guests from the oldest to the youngest:

This is Otelie my sister's mother- in -law  and her friend Reidun! 

She invited my friend Lillan too!

              And then come the younger generations with the celebrant.


Cynnthia and Doreen



                                           The youth: Helene, Kamilla and Gina

                 
                                             The youngest: Adrian and Trond


The beautiful couple, Geir Yngve and Anja who touched our hearts with their song number.
I was captured by the love look in their eyes!


Let us not forget the men!  
 
                                        But anyway, its calorie bomb time!

Here are the couple who prepared all the foods. My brother in law might get angry with me for publishing his picture, but, I believe he will forgive me this time. Again:) 


                                         Let us see what they prepared for us!

                                       Pancit as always, for long life!

Vegetables to go with the meat dish . 

Tastes like kaldereta!

                                                 Garnished salmon


                                                 Potatoes and Kare kare

Cold cuts salmon, scrambled eggs with sliced bread.

And the most important of all. The rice!


As you can see, they really prepared so much foods. Many had been invited but couldn't come. We were I believe just 20 persons. 

And to burn all the calories, my brother -in -law made us join the games he prepared.

The rule is to go around the small bottle 5 times and then after that run to the next table


and then  put  a thread into the needle's eye, pull out again and run to the next contestant. 
You can just try putting a tread into a needles eye after turning around five times. The girls were so dizzy aftrewards, but had fun.


                     The ladies who won! Edelyn, Maria and Rowena
                         
 But it is now finished yet. The next game is to eat 3, 4, and five pieces of biscuits. Not easy concerning all the food intakes we had done minutes before.


After that is to blow a ballon later until it explodes.


                                                       and the winners!


 Well, after burning some calories, time to eat again the cakes that my sister and brother -in -law baked.

   Here they are:




Happy Birthday to my sister! Thanks for everything!

 Well, we couldn't eat all the cakes, so my sister told me to serve the cakes to the elderly the day after. Guess what! They were so thankful!




And lastly, the gifts that she received. Adrian is helping her to count how much money she got:)

Bye for now! Thanks for dropping by!
