Weekend Story: Baby NJ’s 1st Birthday Celebration

As much as we wanted to throw a big party, we cannot as we are limited by the IATF rules and regulations on covid-19 prevention. We also cannot risk catching the virus because we have four senior citizens and a baby in the family. So yeah, family celebration it is. The best thing about this set-up? Ang laking tipid saming mag-asawa, hehe.
