“Scar­lett’s birth­day seemed like a month­long cel­e­bra­tion, be­cause prior to that, we watched the Icon concert since she re­ally likes one of the singers. So, she got to meet him as well. Then, we went to Bo­ra­cay and Aman­pulo af­ter,” shares mom Ch­esca Kramer.

SIM­PLE GIRL

As soon as they got back from their beach trips, the Kramer fam­ily went straight to the party prepa­ra­tions for Scar­lett’s 7th birth­day. Born Novem­ber 28, Scar­lett Lou­velle cel­e­brated with her fam­ily and friends last De­cem­ber 2 with a win­ter won­der­land theme. “Scar­lett is ac­tu­ally a very sim­ple girl. She’s ba­si­cally a T-shirt, leg­gings, rub­ber shoes kind of girl. She doesn’t like much of the frills and any­thing that’s over­board. She’s also sweet, but you can’t overly hug her, be­cause you have to wait when she wants to. But when she hugs you, she hugs you like you’re ev­ery­thing to her,” Ch­esca on Scar­lett.

The party plan­nings started as early as two years ago, and Ch­esca con­sulted with the birth­day girl re­gard­ing the theme. “Scar­lett is not very picky. She’s just re­ally look­ing for­ward to cel­e­brat­ing her 7th birth­day be­cause it’s very mo­men­tous for a girl. That’s the time their papa gives them their prom­ise rings.”

FUN FOR GUESTS OF ALL AGES

The venue was split into two, with the first half packed with chil­dren’s ac­tiv­i­ties. “There was neck­lace mak­ing, slime and dough mak­ing. We also had a soap carv­ing area and paint­ing area, too!” Ch­esca was de­lighted that par­ents had a re­lax­ing time at the party where they got to leave the kids to play in the ac­tiv­ity area with­out wor­ry­ing.

All the guests brought home a lot of gifts from the fam­ily’s spon­sors. They wanted to cre­ate a Christ­mas vibe with hol­i­day mu­sic play­ing, and fes­tive food be­ing served. Most of all, they re­minded ev­ery­one what Christ­mas is all about: “The real rea­son for the sea­son, why we are able to en­joy what we have now is be­cause Je­sus Christ sac­ri­ficed his life be­cause of us.”

ALL GROWN-UP

When asked how it feels like to have two daugh­ters who are over 7 years old, “It’s bit­ter­sweet, be­cause we want them to be young and stay as ba­bies but at the same time we en­joy talk­ing to them. We are able to en­joy talk­ing to them and have con­ver­sa­tions with them. I al­ways tell my chil­dren to en­joy. You don’t have to rush grow­ing up be­cause when you are all grown-up, we can’t go back to be­ing a kid any­more. So while you’re still young, en­joy play­ing with your toys, en­joy be­ing a kid. You will have the time to grow up, but you will only be a kid once,” says Ch­esca.

My wish is that she grows up to be a child who's hon­est and re­spects her par­ents and for her to be God-fear­ing. If you're with the Lord and you honor your par­ents, I feel like ev­ery­thing will fol­low.” --- mom Ch­esca
