We have always preferred celebrating birthdays either at home, with just us - Dada, Mama, K and G plus G's nanny or through short getaways and vacations with just the 4 of us like what we did in Bintan and Phuket.
READ:For G's 4th birthday, we made an exemption just like when we celebrated K's 7th birthday at McDonalds. G's school allows kids to celebrate birthdays with their classmates so we decided to celebrate G's birthday there as it fell on a school day.
G is still so much into vehicles so I ordered a vehicle themed cupcakes for the school celebration and a cake for him to blow at home from Cherie of Petite Joy Bakes. I will blog about it in another entry.
G's birthday celebration in school was scheduled at 2pm but I got the cakes delivered at 10am so that we could celebrate at home first. The cake arrived just in time after G's bath cum playtime with daddy. Hubby and I took leave from work so that we could be with the birthday boy.
After G made a wish and blew his birthday candles, we went to Holy Trinity Church to thank God for giving us our precious baby boy. It's our family's birthday tradition to visit a church. Afterwhich, we made a quick trip to Toys 'R Us to grant the boy's birthday wish. He's been asking for this Thomas the Train set but we waited for a special occasion to splurge on it. So glad we did because it was on sale yesterday!
Class resumed after the celebration so I took the chance to prepare for the Singapore Blog Awards while G was in school. There was an ongoing SG50 promotion at The Hair Secrets in Eastpoint so I availed the 50% off hair and make up.
Thanks and praises be to God for another memorable page in the book of our family life. May God continue to bless G with healthy body and mind, more happy childhood memories and all the good things in life that money can't buy.
