Baby On the Way!
My cousin Erica will be the first of my generation to have a baby, due in 6 weeks! I wish her Dad could have been here for this. The family has moved into a beautiful new house, but it still feels so strange without my Uncle, who passed just last year. We all miss him very much.
But in happier news, I am so thrilled that my grandmother will have her first great grandchild soon. Erica's decided to name her son after her dad.
Today's baby shower in the new house was so much fun. I am participating in today's Blipfoto challenge: What's On Your Plate. We had all traditional Filipino food, including lechon (a whole roasted pig), sweet spaghetti (not sure what makes it sweet, but I love the Filipino version because it has sliced hot dog as the meat), lumpia (egg rolls), fried rice, and pancit (Filipino rice noodles), to name a few of the dishes. But the dessert table was by far the most photogenic. These teddy bear macarons had caramel in the center and the chocolate chip cookies were so soft.
An entire day filled with family, love and food.
