A very celebratory weekend

I celebrated 4 birthdays this weekend.

Yes, 4!

It started friday night out with the girls to celebrate Tamara’s and Valerie’s birthdays.

We all had a great time at News Lounge where we scored our own private Moroccan style room.

We drank, we ate, we had chocolate fondue for desert, it was super fun!

On saturday we went to Sofia’s first birthday party and later on at night I went over to uncle Darren’s house where we celebrated our friend Chloe’s birthday.

I had birthday cake twice that day. YUM!

Sunday we had a pretty chill family day.

We had brunch, we went over to Collins park, the W hotel.

It was a great weekend.

How about you guys? Did you have a good weekend?




Lily’s 1st birthday

For Lily’s birthday yesterday, we had a small family birthday party for her at tia Tete’s house.

As always there was lots of food and tons of sweets.

Lily walked more than ever yesterday.

She was all over the yard and the house all by herself.

We sang happy birthday to her both in Portuguese and in English.

She was all about the cake, the blowing of the candle, the opening of all the wonderful presents that she received and wearing the beautiful dress that uncle Michael gave her a while back.

It was a wonderful day.

I can’t believe she is 1. She is officially a toddler…

I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Picture overload again. 😉

Parabens Sebastiao!

Cousin Sebastiao turned 9 on friday and had his birthday party yesterday.

Lena (my cousin, his mom) did such a great job with all the drinks, cakes and games she had for the kids.

Lily had a wonderful time playing with cousin Sofia and watching all the older kids run around.

We couldn’t have asked for better weather.

It was a great saturday.

OH! And speaking of lil miss independent, Lily will most likely be walking soon. She is feeling quite confident these days. She got a lot of solo walking time between tia Tete and me at the party.
