Toni's Birthday and Dedication Party

My goddaughter, Antonella, is now one year old. She had her party on Saturday at the Marikina Hotel. I made the conscious mistake of dressing Marguerite in a halter dress, hence the backward bib so her back wouldn't be exposed. She didn't pay attention to the clowns, but she had fun picking up and sweeping (with balloons) the confetti on the floor. Here are some pics.

Would you believe that I haven't been back to the dentist since getting pregnant (that would make it around two years now)? Anyway, yesterday I was suffering from a dull toothache (the first time since I was a small girl, I believe) during the worship service. As soon as I got home, I gave my teeth a vigorous brushing, ate lunch, then did some more vigorous brushing, made a paste out of ground cloves and water and voilĂ , my mouth was numb and the pain was gone. I'm definitely going to visit a dentist sometime this week just to get it out of the way. I don't really mind dentists, but I was hoping to never have to spend for their services again. My freelance gigs don't cover a dental plan.
