Another Birthday spent in Yaounde

Every year I throw a birthday party for my husband. As much as possible I want it to be a surprise but this year it wasn't that successful. A day before his birthday he already suspect that I’m doing something, he think I’m being sneaky,and when I'm in the kitchen doing something for the preparation he just want to be there beside me and wanting to help around but at the same time keep asking me repeatedly of "are you doing something for me on my birthday? so I guess his persistent make me give up and admit that yes I’m throwing you a birthday party baby!
He start his day with abreakfast in bed, Claire picked some flower in our garden and I made an omelette and bagel with cream cheese that goes with his favorite brewed coffee, and while he's having breakfast in bed Claire is massaging daddy's foot. He just love the VIP treatment and he deserve it..
We had some friends over from the embassy and of course my little Filipino community is always present. Our driver and housekeeper came too and I think that is a surprise to Jeff he had no idea I invited them and he's glad I did. I made some Filipino dishes and a mango cheese cake for dessert but I hired a local chef to do the brochette for me. Good food, great friends everybody had a goodtime. We sang happy birthday and Claire our 5 years old daughter lead the song in French they thought it was cool. We went to bed midnight already and Jeff just can't thank me enough. Well anything for you baby. My husband use to say this to me always
“Grow old along with me baby and the best is yet to be.Happy Birthday Baby!
