My precious baby turned SIX!

Ashton turned SIX yesterday, holy macaroni! 
Where did all the time go?!

We have a family tradition - we go to Swenson's for Fire House on our birthdays so yesterday we went (24/08/18) and today we threw him a home party instead.
A small-scale, intimate party with family and his closest friends.

Ashton requested for a Minion's theme so everyone in the family was colour-coordinated.
Everyone except the husband, that was, because he refused to dress up like Mr Gru (full black with a stripy neck scarf). 
Children, I hope that you guys will choose easier themes for your Mom to coordinate next year.

Anyway, here are some photos from the party!

This Minion piƱata was literally a hit with the kids!

But first, water time!!!

The troopers marching to the pool with determination written all over their faces.

Ashton and his friends in the Kids pool.

These boys are a riot!

Living the thug life like a boss! 

With his closest friends in school (other than the boys in the last row: Adam, Alden and Rayden).
The Moriah kids are all going to different primary schools next year so we mummies have already planned another playdate before they graduate and go separate ways!

It's been a crazy pre-weekend running the birthday errands and doing last minute purchases.

Even though I didn't manage to get proper photos with everyone especially the adults, I want you all to know that I appreciate every single one of you!

Daddy & Mummy love you so much, you are inarguably the best thing that happened in our lives, a godsend.

Our only wish for you is for you to grow up to be a happy and healthy boy.
Your old man and old woman agree that we will support you in whatever you wish to pursue, but of course we also secretly wish you'd be a CEO or millionaire.
We love you and are counting on you!

Kids playdate: Happy Mid-Autumn Festival 2015!

Hubby and I love entertaining guests in our humble home, and we are no strangers to hosting dinners to our family members and friends.
However, when it comes to hosting a dinner for children, this would be our first!

Legend of Mid-Autumn Festival
The story of Chang E is the most widely accepted tale regarding the moon and the origin of the Mid-Autumn Festival. It is said that in ancient times, ten suns existed and the extreme heat made people's lives very difficult. It was the hero Hou Yi, who, owing to his great strength, shot down nine of the ten suns. On hearing of this amazing feat and the hero who performed it, people came from far and wide to learn from him. Peng Meng was among these people. Later, Hou Yi married a beautiful and kind-hearted woman named Chang E and lived a happy life.

One day, Hou Yi came upon Wangmu (the queen of heaven) on the way to meet his old friend. Wangmu presented him an elixir which, if took, would cause him to ascend immediately to heaven and become a god/goddess. Instead of drinking the potion himself, Hou Yi took it home and presented it to Chang E to keep. Unfortunately, Peng Meng secretly saw Hou Yi give the potion to his wife and three days later, while Hou Yi was out hunting, Peng Meng rushed into the backyard and demanded that Chang E hand over the elixir. Knowing that she could not win, she took out the elixir and swallowed it immediately. The moment she drank it, she flew out of the window and up into the sky. Chang E's great love for her husband drew her towards the Moon, which is the nearest place to the earth on the heaven.

On realizing what happened to his wife, Hou Yi was so grieved that he shouted Chang E’s name to the sky. He was amazed to see a figure which looked just like his wife appeared in the Moon. He took the food liked by Chang E to an altar and offered it as a sacrifice for her. After hearing that Chang E became a goddess, folk people also offered sacrifices to Chang E to pray for peace and good luck. Since then, the custom of sacrificing to the moon has been spread among the folklore.
These days, I'm just thankful that my bunch of Mummy friends are those who are unpretentious, women who empower each other, not the type who like to put each other down by competing whose child is better behaved, smarter, has more accomplishments, etc etc.
Instead, we like to complain - it's our Mummy-coping mechanism.
So we complain about our children are so unfocused in school, like to have melt-downs in public, whiney, sulky, terrible kids...
Such horrible mothers we are!
 Hope your kids had fun this Mid-autumn festival!

Witches and little monsters get-together: Halloween playdate.

A bunch of us Mummies Witches organised a Halloween Playdate for our children. Between us, we have 10 children so can you imagine the amount of Trick or Treatin' going on!
Let's see what we had brewing in our dungeon!

Pumpkin cupcakes baked by yours truly!

We had a Wizard, Devil, Pirates (not yet pictured), Pumpkins (mine), and little Ballerinas!

Little Ballerina is angry because of the loud spooky music the boys were playing HEHEHE.
I swear if I have a daughter imma spoil her rotten!

The Pirate family!

See my Adam in the middle of the table grabbing as many treats as he could. *Mummy blushes and hides her face*

Glad that the children and adults had equal parts of fun.
Adam and Ashton had soooooo much candy that when we got home, it was time to whip out Mama's Magic Potion - Young Living DiGize, Lemon, and Grapefruit to detox, detox, detox.
Gotta send my kids to Candy Rehab for the next 2 months!
