i was sick. cough and colds. it was good that i'd earlier decided to just have a simple family+loved ones celebration at home.
ige came bearing gifts! my nose cleared up for about 5 minutes out of excitement! :P
my mom prepared a sumptuous lunch: spaghetti, prawns, ribs, baked potatoes, chicken pastel, fruit salad. thanks, ma! it was really too bad i couldn't enjoy the food 100%. sniff. :(
after lunch we lounged around, watched movies. we saw hugo and the music never stopped.
we also played twister!
time to open gifts! :)
my niece miel gave me a ginormous lollipop! ige gave me a neat wooden clock that also shows the date, and tita aggie & tito marit (ige's parents) gave me an awesome shirt blouse that fits oh so perfectly (and happened to match my nails)! thank you! :)
plus! super thanks to my family, especially my mom, and a big thank you to everyone who greeted. :)
and of course, thanks to ige for visiting the sick birthday girl and for bringing the movies, the presents, and taking the photos! :D
