Me and my birthday present for Ate Madie.
I was invited to Ate Madie's Birthday last month. I think I was her youngest visitor. Hehe! She turned seven last and her friends from school were there too. When we arrived at their house, no one was there except for her brother, her Mommy and her Mommy's girlfriends, and us. It was very silent. Auntie Nora said that they were out with her husband to the movies. So we waited.
Just before blowing her birthday cake.
Ate Madie and her friends... She was opening her gifts here.
I was getting a bit bored but Kuya Mark played me. He gave me some papers and coloring pens so I can scribble my time away. An hour after we arrived, Madie and her friends were back. I was so happy to see them! And the party began... We sang a birthday song for her and asked he to make a wish. Then Ate Madie blew her cake and we ate, gave her our presents, and played games.

After all the children have eaten, me included, we went out to their garden. I had fun running around in their garden. I even found new friends. It was a very happy day. And I found myself always saying "Happy!"
