Happy Birthday, my baby Zayden! :)

Happy Birthday to you, too, Zefeng! :D

Zayden Asher’s 2-Day Partay!

Last weekend was spent celebrating Zayden Asher’s first birthday :) It was a two-day affair since there were many people we wanted to invite. Saturday was at home with his relatives and friends while Sunday was at my old home with my relatives and friends.

It was pretty easy to entertain people on Saturday since there was a wide screen TV and a home theater system. All we needed to do was pop a DVD in and hey presto!—people are entertained.

Totally into Avatar

Since Guan had to entertain his friends and his parents, their relatives, I just made sure that there are enough chairs, that people have taken their food from the buffet and making sure that everyone has a drink (or two). Inititally, when some relatives and friends came early, Zayden was pretty cheerful and socialized. But as the night went on and more people came, the crowd became a little too overwhelming for him and he clung onto me every now and then.

(While going through my photos, I realized that I am missing photos from my sister’s camera so there are a lot of photos that I can’t add to this post. I guess there will be another post on this event.)

As the birthday song was sung, he got all happy and clapped along.

A few days prior to this celebration, Guan’s father tried to teach Zayden how to blow out his birthday candle. It wasn’t successful so on that day, we coaxed him to attempt to blow. As we were encouraging him, “Go on, Zayden. Blow the candle. Remember how to blow?” He suddenly stuck out a finger and extinguished the flame! :o

Everyone was so shocked! I quickly checked his finger but it seemed fine. In fact, he looked like he was about to cry with everyone’s outburst :lol:

Yup, he loves cake :)

On Sunday, Guan, Zayden and I went over to my old home at noon to help decorate the house. I have to say I was rather surprised because I did not expect my parents to actually decorate! On my first birthday I remember not having any balloons nor streamers/banners hung up around the house. Grandparents really spoil their grandchildren, eh? ;)

(After the party, my mom insisted that I should take a few photos of the decorations. It wasn’t much. But, still.)

Zayden was actually rather cranky because he didn’t nap. So when most of the guests arrived, he was napping away :?

At the end of the day, Zayden had a lot of presents.

“Ooh, I wonder what’s the biggest gift like?” :D

“Thanks for helping me Daddy!”

“It’s a Winnie the Pooh airplane!”

“Awesome!”

Due to the size of the gift, Guan and I initially thought it was a car. But since Guan’s in the airforce, my cousin got him the airplane. Sweet, ain’t it? :)

Did I forget to mention that Zayden started walking? ;)

Looking at cute little girl items from this Etsy store just makes me wish for a girl sooner than I’d like! Though I wouldn’t dress her up in pink or over frilly dresses and such, the images from the store just makes me want to stare and dream :)

The weekend was an exhausting one since there was a double celebration for Zayden Asher’s first birthday :D Here’s a sneak:

It’s my birthday!

I don’t really like my birthday :? But since everyone’s making a fuss, I shall not be a wet blanket :)

So all you readers and lurkers, wish me now! :lol:

On Guan’s birthday…

… he is giving himself a present—a diving trip this weekend :lol:

He turned 22 on Sunday (Yay! and oops—a late post) and we had lunch with my family at Koon Kee Restaurant & Pub and dinner with his parents at Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao at Ngee Ann City.

Anyway, the weekend was spent doing up ATCs and some digital layouts (since Saturday was (inter)National Scrapbooking Day). Do check out the two layouts I made :)

The Great Singapore Sale (GSS) is nearing and I hope the local scrapbook store have some goodies I can get my hands on :D

I had almost forgotten one exciting thing! I won something at a giveaway on Michelle’s blog! So exciting! (And I was complaining about not winning anything over the weekend.)

(And I know everyone’s waiting for this moment:)

6 Years

It’s December! That means a lot of things. Like 24 more days to Christmas, one month to the new year, 10 days to my mom’s birthday and today’s my dad’s birthday!

Happy Birthday to my awesome dad! :D

And that means this domain is 6 years old! :) Wow. It has been a really long time…
