Birthday Party Fun- Cookie Decorating

Cooking decoration

At the birthday party we attended on the weekend the boys got to try out decorating cookies. Both of them had a go and you can see their creations below.

You can see that Monkey boy is now much better in art and actually creates pictures with the icing given for decoration. I’m glad that we skipped the idea of sending the boys for any Art Enrichment classes as clearly it is not their most passionate area.

The rest of the time at the party the kids were glued on to the games on the IPADs which were brought along by the kids of the other party guest. I guess these mobile devices really work well as “temporary babysitters” while the adults spend time to catch up with each other.

What do your kids normally do at a birthday party?

At A party

Last weekend the kids were invited to a birthday party. It has been awhile since they have attended one and were glad to be invited to my friends son’s 1st birthday bash.  1st birthdays are all so special. Even though the child is technically too young to remember or to enjoy his 1st birthday but it does bring back a lot of warm memories when one flips through the photo books to reminisce on the joyous occasion.

We only threw a first birthday party for Monkey boy when he turned one. For Doggie boy and Tiger girl we opted to bring them on a trip back to Hong Kong to celebrate with the relatives there instead. There wasn’t any fancy birthday party or programs specially chosen to mark their turning of age but we do have tons of photographs taken with relatives and friends who love them.

This April we are starting of the week with a whole week of giveaways here on Dominque’s Desk. I have already listed three giveaways- Eraselets, UGLEE pens and Therapon Skin Products. I will be adding more giveaways as the week progresses for all my beloved readers.
This week I am sharing a classic from one of the most outstanding Taiwanese Male Singer/Composer- Jay Chou

Acting Balanced

1. Did you prank, get pranked or ignore April Fool’s Day?

No I didn’t carry out any pranks or get pranked. It was a normal day for us.

2. What is the most unusual thing you have in your pantry or refrigerator right now?
It would be the Hello kitty and Thomas the train pasta which I bought to cook for the kids.

3. If you were in the “Miss America” (or another) talent competition, what would your talent be?
I have never taken part in such contests but I guess it would be singing, playing the violin or piano.
4. What is one thing you miss about being a kid?
Having everything taken care for you and not have to worry.

5. If you HAD to change your name, what would you change it to?
 I can’t really think of any at the moment but I may add on R’s surname to mine.
