We don’t always have birthday party for A, we always try to make his birthday special, but not necessary having a party.
His 1st birthday, 2007, we had a small birthday party with 3 families as our guest :3 little girls and 1 boy. We didn’t have a real party until his 6th birthday in 2012 where we invited all the boys in his Kindergarten class plus a couple of coworkers with their kids and our long time neighbor. I decided to throw a party then because I knew we would move to another state, so it’s kind of like ’till we see you again’ party as well.
This 10th year, we decided to throw another party as he entered his first 2 digit mark in his life – we did ‘won’ the silent auction at A’s school for a birthday party in his favorite store “Bricks & Minifigs” also some gift cards in couple of his favorite place to eat. So be it.
As A’s birthday fell on Friday this year, we booked the party on Saturday. We were bit iffy on Thursday after hearing the possible snow storm would hit our city and may close down many business due to safety. We were even more nervous on Friday as I got released early from work and noticed many place of business also closed early. I just hate to have to break the news for A in case we have to reschedule his party!
But thank goodness, Saturday was so much a better day than Thursday or Friday! No cancellation for A’s party!
Most of A’s friends from his scout family came and the party went awesome!
We ordered the Minecraft theme cake from Rumah Indonesia Bakery, pizza and nuggets from A’s most favorite fast food place : Chick Fil A.
I have to say, A is such a lucky boy to have many friends who care for him!
Happy Birthday my young man!
I know you will thrive in your life.
I love you always.
