United Nations Celebration

I was too busy last October so I forgot to share my daughter’s photo last United Nations celebration in their school.  My daughter joined United Nations in school happened last October 27. It’s not compulsory to join but I let her joined this time because she didn’t join last year. I picked Chinese costume for her.  She turns 10 few days ago but still I am the one who decide for her. Every time I asked her, the response will always be “whatever you want.”

Anyhow, I chose her to represent Chinese because of her looks. I also wanted her to wear Korean Hanbok, not because I loved Korean drama but because many are saying she looks like Korean. But due to lack of time, I decided Chinese costume and i’m thinking she can still use the dress even not United Nations celebration. This dress can be worn in New Year celebration.

United Nations celebration in school was really simple. They just parade in the school vicinity and went to the gym after the parade. They chose two representatives for each grade, one boy and one girl. But everyone had the chance to walk on stage.

Peppa Pig Goodies

Daughter attended neighbor’s birthday party few days ago. The day before the celebration she saw the preparation and happy to know that Peppa Pig was the birthday themed. She likes peppa pig so she didn’t think twice and attend the party.  The party held just in front of our abode. She was happy because she took home peppa pig bag with peppa pig goodies. Daughter mentioned that the party was awesome hahah. Well it is because she likes peppa pig that much. Thank you for these peppa pig goodies!

Daughter’s 8th Birthday

Yesterday we celebrated my daughter’s 8th birthday. It wasn’t a big celebration and I just prepared simple foods. I only invited my family and some of our neighborhood. She turned 8 on November 10 but because it was school day, I decided to celebrate her birthday on weekend.

Party is not allowed in her current school unlike in her previous school. But teacher allowed my daughter to give something for her classmates. So, I prepared small bag of goodies and my daughter distributed the goodies to all her classmates after school.

Here are some of the photos on her 8th birthday celebration

This is a Red Ribbon chocolate cake

Labor Day and Birthday Celebration

Last May 1, aside of Labor Day celebration, we also celebrated my sister’s birthday. Her birthday was actually April 30. Not yearly my sister celebrates her birthday but this time my nieces asked my sister to celebrate birthday and not just celebrate but doing the celebration in a pool area. Because it’s really hot and summer is not yet over. Last minute my sister agreed so we went swimming on May 1 since it’s a holiday and everyone was available at this day.

My daughter was very excited and happy because she likes swimming unfortunately not yet a good swimmer. Well, in time for sure she will make it. While enjoying the cold water from the pool, my daughter also enjoyed the scenery. We saw Manny Pacquiao action figure and hurriedly asked her to pose like Pacquiao. Glad to see Pacquiao figure because that time the fight of the century has been a talked in town. Aside from this, we also saw animal figures like camel and giraffe and other big animals. I wonder if these figures were USA made like the guitars I browsed earlier heheh.

Attended 1st and 7th Birthday

Five days ago, my daughter attended two birthday celebration on the same day. Good thing different time so daughter  has able to attend both parties. The first one was lunch time and the other one was late in the afternoon.

The first one celebrated 7th birthday. She was my daughter’s former classmate when she was in prep. Now, that my daughter transferred in a new school they haven’t seen for a long time but I have still communication with the mother of the celebrant. I also invited them when my daughter celebrated 7th birthday.

Happy 7th Birthday Kyla

Time flies, today my daughter is celebrating her special day. It seems it was only yesterday when I gave birth to her. Now, she is already 7 and growing beautifully inside and out. I’m happy to be with her since she was on my tummy and throughout these years. I’m thankful that God gave you to me. Remember that you are the greatest gift that I ever received in my entire life. I already shared some of the highlights of your life when you celebrated your 6th birthday. To my readers, you can read it HERE.

I shared this message to my FB account awhile ago and happy to share here in my blog. “Cheers to my daughter who’s celebrating her 7th birthday today. Remember that you are and will always be my ONE and ONLY princess. I wish you all the happiness in the world. As you grow up, I hope that you face life’s challenges with strength and maturity. Mama will always be here for you. I love you so much. You are my inspiration and my life.”

Happy happy birthday my little princess!

How to Come Up with a Great Kid’s Birthday Cake Design

Your child’s birthday is always going to be a special day that you want to celebrate. And what better way is there to honour your son or daughter than by coming up with a unique and fun birthday cake design that no one will ever forget?

Continue reading for tips on how to come up with a great kid’s birthday cake design that everyone will enjoy looking at and then indulging in. Be sure to take plenty of pictures before making the first cut!

Think About the Season Your Kid’s Birthday Falls Within

If you find yourself having trouble coming up with a birthday party theme and a design for your child’s birthday cake, consider what season his or her birthday falls within. For a summer birthday bash, for example, especially if you’re throwing a pool party, you can design a birthday cake in the shape of a large and colourful fish, complete with cupcakes with light blue frosting that can serve as the bubbles that come out of the fish’s mouth. The creative use of a spatula can help you in achieving the texture of the scales on the fish.

Rainbow Layered Cake

Another fun design could be a rainbow layered cake. Using various food colourings, you can make separate layers for a large cake that can feed a crowd. While the exterior frosting can be one uniform colour with design accents of your choice, the real surprise will happen when you cut into the cake and you reveal a rainbow of colours separated by yummy frosting.

Castle Cakes for Princesses

Cakes can be made into just about any shape imaginable. If you’re an excellent baker and you have experience in designing intricate cakes, you can make a castle cake on your own by assembling it into the shape of a castle, complete with frosted sugar cones that can serve as its turrets. But if you are worried about your ability to make the cake come out perfectly, it’s best to leave this type of design up to the professionals who have a portfolio of large cakes in a variety of designs.

Use Cupcakes for a Pull-Apart Cake

Using colourful cupcakes, you can create a pull-apart cake that requires no cutting whatsoever. This takes a bit of strategy and patience, though, as you’ll need to frost each individual cupcake and then piece them all together like a puzzle to create a cohesive design. Some bakers choose to keep things simple by setting up the cupcakes in the shape of the age of the birthday boy or girl, while others can create entire landscape designs or cartoon characters. Kids dig in by taking one cupcake at a time, allowing for perfect portion control.

When it comes to creating a birthday cake design for your child, have fun. And if you absolutely can’t figure out how to bake an elaborate cake on your own, rest assured that there are plenty of professional bakers available who can make your design idea come to life.

Toy Story and Sponge Bob Goodies

My daughter’s classmate had birthday celebration at school. It wasn’t really a big celebration because no games, party or anything. The celebrant treated his classmates with McDonalds foods during snack time, then later on gave toy story and sponge bob goodies.

My daughter likes Toy story a lot so she was very happy seeing her new toy story stuff like toy story pouch, stickers and toy story notebook. Aside from all of these, she got also Sponge Bob school supplies like pencil case, pencils, eraser, sharpener, ruler and stickers. Thanks to his classmate who celebrated birthday at school and to all these goodies, I think kids are always excited to receive something just like these toy story and sponge bob goodies during birthday celebration.
