Audrey's 5th: The Birthday Events

      Audrey's birthday fell on a Sunday and we really didn't plan for a big party. Instead we ended up with a 3-day celebration over the weekend which left us, the parents, all partied out! :o  Haha! Not really complaining but if you're a parent, I think you already know that even small gatherings can tire you out easily when it's done on 3 consecutive days! Both Audrey and Natalie had lots of fun, and of course so did we so no regrets! We super enjoyed as well! :)


The morning before her celebration in school :)

Audrey and her classmates had a blast in her simple pizza party!
Who knew preschoolers could eat so much pizza?! They kept
going back for seconds and thirds! :D

The next day, it was time for Audrey's Birthday Brunch at our bro/sis in laws' house!
They just had a baby and my sis in law was recovering from an operation
so we brought the party to them! Had so much fun cooking brunch with a bit
of Natalie's help hehe, and everyone else's! The brunch buffet was a good idea!

Natalie seems to love the pancakes we prepared!
Complete with rainbow sprinkles :)

Up, up and away!

The girls spent the day eating, playing and enjoying the company of their baby cousins!

Time to blow out 5 colorful candles!

All smiles!

This fondant covered butter cake was superb!

On Audrey's actual birthday, we went out of town with ze grandparents.
It was a relaxing afternoon at the playground and the pool!

Another year has passed and
my little girl is growing up so fast.
Sigh!

Audrey's 5th: The Birthday Goodies

     Somebody just turned 5! :) This year, just like any other - I made Audrey choose a theme for her birthday celebration. Hi5 was the perfect choice since she's into rainbows and colors and she was turning five! See the few cute and yummy goodies that we prepared below ;)

The birthday girl!

(before we packed the cupcakes and
cookies for Audrey's celebration in school).

We super love this cake by Sweets by Cha! :)
Everything turned out perfect from the butter cake inside
and the stars and Hi5 hand logo outside!
