Huff and puff out my candles
Happy birthday to me!
Didn't want to let the absence of a maid change my plan to have it at home. It was a little hectic that morning though... had to clean house, wash and hang clothes, make and feed breakfast to the kids (who woke up one by one), cook, get ready chairs/plates/cutlery etc and once hubby woke up, go out to procure a cake.
Guests arrived around noon...
Everybody... play play play
(Ah Mah is actually playing blocks with the kids, not by herself hehe)
Balloon swords/sausages for all!
Then the resident balloon-maker made giraffes, dogs...
Menu was almost the same as for JE's birthday, only this time some dishes didn't turn out as well - a little overcooked or salty or just plain not-so-nice. Next time I think I won't cook, or maybe buy cook some, buy some. No need to torture myself nor my guests! Then again, I never learn and next time might well get all gung-ho to cook again heh. At least I have no plans to make the cake myself!
Happy 2nd birthday to my second little princess!
