Father’s Day Preparation

June 19, 2011 is the celebration of Father’s Day, which is only a few days away from this post.  My two sons and I were secretly brainstorming last night on how we will celebrate it and what to give to our beloved “Haligi ng Tahanan” (a Filipino idiom meaning Father).  This day is one of the most important occasions we celebrate.

Yahmir, my youngest son said that he would be making a personalized greeting card, he and his Kuya JM, my eldest son are good in drawing and artworks.  They also suggested that they will be printing a big banner to be placed in our bedroom to surprise their Dad.  JM is also thinking of buying a new mobile gadget as a gift. While I asked their suggestions on what special meal will I cook on this special day.

Ideas and suggestions were overflowing, which made us more excited and eagerly looking forward for the family celebration.  We intend to surprise my husband, so we will keep our preparations a secret.  Don’t worry, Noi is very busy nowadays that he seldom opens the computer, so he will not be able to read this hihi. 

A Father’s Day greeting card, a big banner, a new mobile gadget, then for our special meal -Beef Mechado and Carbonara or Fettucini Alfredo and a blueberry cheesecake (all are Noi’s favorite food). 

I am still thinking of how I will create a festive meal.  Maybe, I will set the table for a candle light dinner, and serve some wine. What do you think? 

What about you, do you already have plans on how to celebrate Father’s day? Any gift ideas to share?

Please feel free to comment on more suggestions. Your insights are very much appreciated!
