My dear eldest Jaden turned 4 last week and we celebrated it with a "Lego Birthday Week"!
Since I prefer not to have big bashes for my kids' birthdays (milestone years an exception, of course), I previously told Jaden we will just have a small party with his classmates this year. He readily agreed :)
Presenting... Jaden's 4th Birthday (Super-Mini) Party!
|It all starts with the invitation! I made these the night before we were supposed to give them to the kids. Talk about cramming! Hehe. But all's good. They turned out quite nice, don't you think? ;)|
|What's a party without cake?! Little Lego cakes for our little guests! Everybody went crazy these treats from Swell Sweets! The kids were exclaiming, "Awesome!!!" when they got their favorites from the bunch!|
|Loot bags for everyone! Thank God, I saved these yellow paper bags from Jaden's construction zone party last year! They went perfectly with this year's Lego theme! Again, stickers to Lego-fy them! Hehehe!|
|Me and my not-so-baby boy :) We missed Daddy (in a hearing) and Sophia (preparing for our road trip later in the day).|
And just like that, I survived another DIY party! Yay! Hehe.
Kidding aside, I must say that beyond the relief, the feeling of happiness and satisfaction I got from this small event is immeasurable. I loved seeing Jaden's face light up when he saw all the party details--everything was Lego! His classmates' excited reactions were a huge bonus too!
Throughout his birthday week, Jaden was so, so happy! It was like he was in Lego heaven with his Lego party AND Lego gifts! Hehehe! Everything is awesome indeed!
To my dearest son Jaden, happy 4th birthday!!! You continue to amaze me with your many milestones and antics. Witnessing your growth humbles me and makes me so grateful to God that He made me your mother. You are indeed my gift from the Lord, and my reward from Him.
I pray that you will grow up to be a man after God's heart--that you will always find favor in Him, that you will be great among men, that you will see the promises of Psalm 112 come true in your life.
I love you, Jaden. Mommy is so very proud of you.
