happy shared eightieth !!!

what do you do ...
when two very special people celebrate their birthday on the same day?  
make lots of cake, eat tubs of ice cream and celebrate !!!

 check out this ube/macapuno cake 
by cape bretoner chef esteban ...(a.k.a. more-flip-than-me stephen)
made with lots of purple yam and coconut...

july 8 is easy to remember at our house...
 because both lola and grandma were born this day
lola is another word for grandmother in the philippine dialect.

this year is extra special, because they both turn 80 years young !!!

you both live so far away from us,  
but we want to wish you both a special happy birthday...

what are the chances of having both grandmothers born on the 
exact same day, same month, same year, same century (maybe same hour)???

who needs fairy godmothers when there are grandmothers !!!


p.s.  i borrowed the wonderful idea of the letters on sticks from rubyellen from mycakies !!!
