Yiu Yiu's 4th birthday

Yiu Yiu turned four on Sunday, November 1. We celebrated her birthday with a small luncheon party at home with family members, babysitter's family and several friends, including two of her classmates.

This time around, she asked for a Snow White cake instead of Barney, which she had for two years in a row. I contacted the baker who baked her beautiful Barney cake last year, and Yan Yan's fullmoon cuppies but as I had left it till too late, she couldn't fulfill my order this time. So we settled for a simple Oreo chocolate cake from Bread Story, with a printout of Disney princesses on what seemed to me like sugar paper.

So how did Snow White evolved to Disney princesses? Well, we know the owner of Bread Story in SS2 and she sent us some photos for us to choose for the cake. When we showed them to Yiu Yiu, she chose this one. The kids at the party loved the cake and polished off almost the whole cake. Thank goodness for that, coz otherwise, I'd end up having to finish the leftover cake.

After having filled our tummies, the girls gathered around Yiu Yiu for some photos with the cake but the boys were more interested to continue playing with each other. Everyone gathered around the table nevertheless, when we started singing the birthday song.

With Faythe and Chloe, her kindy buddies

Cutting the birthday cake...

...and savouring it

I was busy serving and mingling with the guests, and forgotten to take a family photo before the cake was cut. This was the only one we managed to take.

Everyone left by about 2.30pm, leaving hubby and I to clean up the house while the girls slept. We managed to put the house back in order in time for me to bathe the girls and took a shower myself before going to Hilton Kuala Lumpur for an evening lecture. Yeah, I had to work on my girl's birthday.

Pressies galore - thank you so much for coming uncles, aunties and friends

yr little princess is growing up, marked by the transition from barney to disney princesses. kinda like when my only girl changed allegiance from pooh bear to disney princesses, as well. *sigh* why do they have to grow up so fast? :)

Happy Belated Birthday, Yiu Yiu! Mommy is so efficient to organise the birthday party even between travelling and exams :-).

And I must say, Mommy looks so slim eventhough only 3 months after giving birth!

Happy 4th birthday, Yiu Yiu! Yan Yan looks sooooo chubby :-)

I'm cracking my head over the fella's upcoming birthday too since the BB would be just 1 month old then.

Trying to make advance preparations now while I can still go out. you think it'll be weird if I ordered an Anastasia cake for him? He actually wanted that LOL

Mimi - haha, I was asking myself the question last year - of when she would switch allegiance to princesses

Jazz - thanks for coming on such short notice :-)

MeRy/Little Lamb/Syn - thanks.

BoeyJoey - it was soooo last minute, I was half thinking of not doing anything this year. This time round, I lost the weight really fast, not sure why, but it's a good thing...haha.

Kittycat - baby will only be 1-month old? So it'll be a double celebration of Lucas's birthday and mei-mei's fullmoon :-) And he wants an Anastasia cake? LOL...good good, shouldn't niche him to gender specific stuff.
