Erin's 4th Birthday

Erin is now FOUR! 
Had 2 birthday celebrations for her - one at home and another one in school.
This is a super late post tho. The celebrations were 2months+ ago  ;-)

Photos from the birthday celebration


Balloon bearers
SIL and her god sis. Love this pic!

Balloons give out such happy postive party vibes

Part of the Food Spread
Mostly bought (I only baked cupcakes and Erin's birthday cake). We ordered assam laksa again. 
This time not as good as during Elyssa's birthday tho. Mebbe cos it was puasa month and the Malay cook couldn't taste her own cooking?

No photos of party guests eating food cos I was also busy eating  ;-)

After dinner photos:-

Lollipop discussion on the staircase
Such a cute photo!

Playing bubbles in the garden

Birthday Song and Cake Time

The cake I made for her - she requested for a Pink Princess Cake
I was planning to buy an edible icing sheet with princess design (about RM 11). Then saw these little princess figurines (around RM 26 for 8). Turned out to be a good move cos she likes to play with these little dolls till today.

Inside view - Light Sponge Cake layered with Pink Jelly pieces and Frosted with Lemon flavoured Whipped Cream.

The 4 of us

Then they played somemore

Opening up presents
Happy 4th Birthday my baby Princess!  We all love you the moon and back.  :-)

Tech-Free Weekends

These days, we make try not to switch on the tv or give the girls Ipad when we're home during weekends. And the outcome has really surprised us!  They really know how to find things to occupy themselves.

Some snapshots from the past few weekends :

Jumping over cushions

Uhm... colouring without hands


Building Blocks

Blowing Bubbles

Colouring (with hands this time!)

Building a Princess Tent
How do I know it's a princess tent?  See next pic..

See?  There's a "Princess Tent" sign!   

Looks like entry to the tent is by exclusive invitation only. 
These 2 princesses had to make do with a book  ;-)


The 2 sisters can play together for a really long time! My condition to them is that they must keep everything after playing, which they do.  
Love this tech-free activities!
