OMG… He’s Inching Closer…

Yep, my boy is most definitely getting closer to the four-letter word… T-E-E-N… He celebrated his 11th Birthday last week!

This year he decided to go for a big party – or at least what passes for a big party in these parts – he invited 10 friends to a bowling center for a wonderful time. Last year, he opted for an intimate water adventure with just 2 friends.

Here are some pictures to share the event with you:

Here he is, at home, before the party, with the cupcakes and presents (these are from us and his grandparents and uncle).

This is the bowling center near our place. It’s not glam or big but enough with 6 lanes, and other arcade games as well as billiards/pool. Actually, there were 2 other birthday celebrations the same day we were there!

And here’s our traditional birthday shot – the 3 of us, celebrating Tobias’ birthday in our new home πŸ˜‰

The kids had great fun and i had a relaxing time, watching them play and laugh and having a good time. Tobias is already planning for next year’s party.

Yikes! i still can’t wrap my head around the idea that my baby will be hitting “some-teen” in 2 years!

Sigh! i guess that what kids do, isn’t it? They grow up. πŸ™‚

Double Digits!…

Yep, my boy turned the grand age of 10! This mama is still trying to wrap her head around those double digits! Wasn’t it just yesterday that we celebrated his first birthday?

This year he picked to have a small birthday party – just his 2 best friends, Sebi and Lars. Last week, we went to a small water-park nearby and the boys had a blast! Unfortunately, i had no water-proof camera so there are no photos of them in the water but here’s a shot of them just before we went into the changing rooms:

They were so excited to be at the water-park!

Then we had ice-cream at McDonald’s before heading home for a quick birthday song and presents. It was in the middle of the school week so i wanted the boys to get home early; they still had homework to do.

They sang Happy Birthday in both Chinese (Lars goes to Chinese class with T) & German ;)

Yesterday, on his actual birthday, he brought cakeΒ to school to share with all his classmates and teachers. This year he asked for a simple one, just red velvet cupcakes πŸ™‚ (Have a look at previous years’ cake request).

Red Velvet Cupcakes - this is the second batch i baked - another batch due this weekend for the Sunday School class...

Sigh! 10… a pre-teen! i’m half-hearted about him reaching this milestone… but that’s just my heart… i’m so proud of him, he has grown and matured and even though he is still a kid, he is a big kid now.
