Last Dec. 10, yours truly turned a year older - yep, I'm 31 :o) I cooked spaghetti and prepared ice box cake. Mu husband bought 2 small cakes (can u see them? too small huh!) with those teenie weenie candles too that says 31 (yes, that's how you're supposed to read those candles!) Imee bought the Sprite and the oranges... And oh, I'm wearing Cathy and Jon's gift - i love purple! Other stuffs on the table are just add ons to make it look "full" (wink)
They were singing HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU and it made me very excited so I clapped my hands and had that ALL OUT SMILES!
We had our family picture...Yes, this is our family here in China. We managed to stick together and be there for each other in good times and bad... Cindy girl, we miss you here!!! Don't worry, you'll have your share of treat this weekend :o)
My 2 loves gave me their kisses...i love this shot!
EJ and I blew my tiny candles...and off we ate all we can.
We ended the night with this "showing off my tummy" pose... Baby is 18 weeks so here's how we both look :o)
Before I end this blog, for the record, my day wasn't perfect... My husband came home at 9pm because he needed to stay at work to finish a deadline so the rest of us had to eat our partial dinner while waiting for him because we were all starving, EJ accidentally hit my cheekbone with his head (oh my it hurt and it made me weep like a child!!!) but in spite that, I made a choice not to allow anything to rob my joy. So we had those photos up there :o)
Life is simple... Birthdays need not be expensive nor perfect. As long as you have special people to celebrate it with, that for me is a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
