It's my first born's birthday today. :))
That's him as a baby 8 years ago. And that is also how long I've been a SAHM. :)
We had a simple BBQ to celebrate his birthday in advance last Saturday.
My sis's schnauzer, who looks more like a poodle. lol. :P
The birthday cake, which turned out totally different from what I planned. :( The waffles sticks and sugar balls were all last minute add-ons I found in the house to cover up the problem areas. :P But good thing was the celebration was just among our extended family. And the kids have rather low expectation, IT still went 'wow, so nice!' when he saw the cake, lol. :P
I baked these for IT's classmates, he brought the cookies to School today. The icing image for the cake and cookies was chosen by him. :) He googled for the image himself. He even told me the flavour and fillings he wanted for his birthday cake.
And this is the bento I promised him I'll make. He loved the birthday bento I made for LT last year, and requested for a special one on his birthday. :) In the box are onigiri, cookies, chicken karaage (his favourite), cheese and spinach tamago.
LT's bento, same food as above, except he gets strawberries and blueberries in place of cookies. I decided to make his box without the 'birthday cake' (cookie) since it's not his birthday. :) Tamago was badly done today.
IT's bento for School, in the box are fish floss bread ball, cookies, chicken karaage and blueberries.
I love transparent box covers, it's nice to be able to see the contents inside. :)
Before IT dug into his bento today, he gave me a hug and said thank you. :) Awwwww, makes my effort all worth it. :)
Finishing off this post with my lunch, chicken karaage and curly crisps with mentaiko dressing. :)
