Laura & Adam's birthday party

A few days before the birthday party, Laura and Adam helped me bake some cookies to be put into the party packs for their friends and cousins.

Before the cookies were packed, they wanted to try some to ensure the cookies were good enough!

Yup, the cookies got Laura and Adam's stamp of approval. On the day of the party, our guests arrived and were soon in the pool. It was not exactly an ideal day for swimming as it rained before the party started. Good thing was, parents didn't have to deal with applying sunblock on their kids or on themselves.

Soon it was time for the birthday cakes! Adam wanted a train cake and Laura wanted a doll cake. When I showed Adam his cake, he asked, "What train is this?" I told him it was an Adam train. His reply, "No, I want Thomas!" Ah well.... Mama need to make more cakes to practise before making Thomas...

Laura's cake was to be a princess/doll cake (with the skirt being the cake). I didn't have the mould for such a cake, so a dolls tea party it was! Laura was pleased so I'm glad.

In keeping with the tradition started on Laura's 2nd birthday party, the cakes were decorated with candy which the children could feast on after the birthday song was sung.

Next year, the invitations will come with a disclaimer:

Laura and Adam's parents will not be held responsible for your children bouncing off the wall from sugar high after the birthday party.

Thank, me aka lenglui. Since we need to organise only one birthday party for the both of them, can go all out lah. Very tiring leh but seeing Laura and Adam and their guests enjoy themselves at the party, it was all worth it.

Hijackqueen, I do love the fact that we can have the party by the pool. The kids and their parents are kept occupied so no need to organise games, etc! Everyone gets to have fun.

Xmocha, thanks for the wishes. Can you believe Laura and Adam had just finished opening their last presents last night?

I enjoy making their cakes every year.
