KMS Cooks: Homemade Crepe Recipe

Amidst the heavy rain yesterday, I couldn’t stop myself from cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. When I woke up from my afternoon nap yesterday, suddenly I had this light bulb moment. I thought of cooking homemade crêpe for our merienda, so I googled the recipe right away! Agad agad! Wala ng patumpik-tumpik pa baka masira ang moment! Thank goodness because I got the right recipe for my homemade crêpe. And you know what’s good about this recipe? No need to use a special gourmet crepe pan or crêpe maker! A small nonstick pan will do the trick.

All you need is kasipagan and kagandahan! Choz!

Welcome To Terrific Twos, Cyler!

This is how we celebrate your 2nd birthday, anak. Daddy and Mommy decided to bring you at the Mall of Asia since you’re a certified mall rat (like us) and since you love to play a lot. And guest what?! We brought you at Jollibee and you ate your favorite food– jolly spaghetti! Yes, that’s your favorite food at this moment and I guess you got that from your Daddy. You’re the jolliest kid (ever!) whenever you eat jolly spaghetti! And boy oh boy, you had a happy and jolly time at Jollibee! And also, we went to one of your happy place– play area! We made sure that you will have so much fun on that special day because it’s your day. Your 2nd birthday to be exact. It was indeed a day filled with nothing but sheer JOY. You’re the happiest kid on earth then, I can see it in your eyes and thru your actions.

Let these photos do the talking. 🙂

HAPPY 2nd Birthday, anak!

Hello there, Jollibee! I’m Cyler!

If I can only stop the clock and enjoy each and every moment with you, ay naku anak I surely will! Look at you, Cyler you grow so fast! Seeing you growing is a bitter-sweet feeling for Mommy. I wish I can cuddle you like a little baby forever but I know this is too much to ask for.

And look at yourself here, you are so independent! You’re a baby no more(and it makes me wanna cry!). Glad to see that you enjoyed every little space in this play area. You climbed, you crawled, you jumped, you slide, and played non-stop on your own like there’s no tomorrow! You were full of energy and power to play all day long. You did everything that made you happy and giddy. And I couldn’t be any happier than that. Just seeing you happy makes me feel more happier, anak. 🙂

You also gained new friends when you were playing here. And look what you’re doing here…you and your new friend enjoyed throwing out the balls! Yikes!

Too fast, too curious!

Oh and you also tried riding in the car and train! You didn’t have so much fun with the car but you had a blast riding in the train and you had the time of your life!

I am the proudest and happiest Mommy on earth for having the sweetest son like you, Cyler. I wouldn’t trade this title for any title in this world.

And if I will describe this day in one word that would be….ecstatic. Truly, happiness comes from small things. Oh well, what else can I say to you? Welcome to the Terrific twos! Let’s create a more wonderful and meaningful memories together! Bear in mind that you will always be my baby boy kahit pumuti na ang mga buhok mo! We love you so much! Happy 2nd Birthday again! *mwuuuah!*

Cyler’s Super Duper 2nd Birthday: Rounding Up the Details and DIY’s

Here’s my promise to all of you– the details and DIY’s on Cyler’s 2nd birthday celebration. This post has been sitting on my drafts since last Monday. Uggh! Anyway, I guess this is the most exciting part of being a Mom, preparing for our kids birthday party. I bet all Mommies or party planner’s can relate to this. Like what I mentioned in my previous post we only had 1 day preparation for his birthday so we didn’t have enough time to go to Divisoria anymore like what we did on his 1st birthday. So what did we do? We maximized our time and bought all the stuff we needed in just 1 day! So just imagine ang level ng pagod namin that day… to the highest level! But it’s definitely worth it!

So let’s start with the theme, shall we?

We based the theme on this personalized book that we purchased at Look! It’s All About Me. Cyler’s Super Duper Birthday Party book is all about preparing a very special celebration for Cyler’s birthday! In the book Cyler had a whimsical and colorful kind of birthday party (but we stick to blue and green themed color in real life)! That book is supposed to be our guest book too but we forgot to asked all our visitors to write their messages for Cyler in the book because we were too busy then! My bad, sorry blame my momnesia!

Cyler’s 2nd Birthday Party: The Celebration

Thank God for the weekend! Finally I will be able to share this wonderful celebration we had for Cyler’s 2nd Birthday. We decided to have a simple celebration for Cyler since it’s his 2nd birthday already. But then again this celebration happens once a year, so no matter how busy we are, we made sure that this celebration will be special and memorable. We wanted the party to be very simple as much as possible. What’s really important for us is to gather our whole family and friends. Hindi importante ang bonggang celebration, ang importante sama-sama. 🙂

Let us all greet the Birthday Celebrant a super duper happy birthday, Cyrus Schuyler!

Here’s a little trivia about the birthday boy’s name.

His 1st name Cyrus is a Greek origin and the meaning of Cyrus is “Lord”, while his 2nd name Schuyler (Skyler– that’s how you pronounce his 2nd name) means Sky! So basically his whole name means God/Lord in the sky. 🙂

The birthday boy, Cyler!

Special thanks to his Ninang Tenten and Tito Francis for sponsoring his birthday outfit!

So the first question is: how did we come up to the theme? Well, we based the theme on the personalized book that we bought for his 2nd birthday. The book is all about Cyler’s Birthday celebration so it didn’t give us a hard time to think about the party details. It’s anything whimsical, magical, and colorful that’s why the title of the book is “Cyler’s Super Duper Birthday Party“. Actually, our initial plan was to have The Very Hungry Caterpillar theme however we didn’t have enough time to prepare, mejo ma-detailed masyado yung theme na yun eh. So we chose our 2nd plan instead. This was an advance celebration for Cyler because we wanted to celebrate his birthday on the exact day of our fiesta here in our place so this is actually a joint celebration.

That’s for me coz it’s my birthday!

Here’s how we decorated the entire house, I’ll make another post for the details and DIY. 🙂
