HAPPY 4th BiRtHDaY Zachary


Today is a special day to my elder boy, Zachary bcos he will be turning 4 yrs old.
Thank you to Jean for putting up a post to welcome Zac on his 4th birthday !!
Also, thank you to the forever kind Jackie for baking a cake & party over at hers !!

2 weeks before his birthday, I asked him what cake he wanted. He cant make up his mind on a Superman or Mickey Mouse cake. He also listed his birthday wishlist of a new tricycle, a set of cooking toys (do you rem that he loves to cook?) & lollipop. Let see if they were fulfilled !! :)

We celebrated his birthday last Friday nearly a week ahead. This is bcos Daddy will be away on his birthday. We don't want to miss him out on an important day to Zac so I planned earlier :)

We only have a small celebration at home unlike previous years when we had celebration twice over at our parents' !!

This was the swensen birthday cake I chose for Zac. There was no Superman design so I am left with an easy choice of getting the right Mickey design with 2 choices of ice-cream : blueberry & cookies n cream :)



Shall we all sing a birthday song to Zac?

"Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you, Zachary
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to YOU !!"
*blow candle*
These are his birthday presents ...

See Zac modeling beside his new cooking toy? I cant help but keep laughing at that photo, he is really funny :)

The tricycle was bought on that Chaotic Day you have seen him riding on it... ...

Below :
On the left is a present from a good friend, Molly. It is a new learning puzzle game to test your judgement. It is really interesting. I'm surprised that Zac can figure out how to play it. There is a booklet on the different set of puzzle to select & play :)
On the right are present from his school assistants.

Below are a set vehicle tool set. I have longed wanted to get one for Zac but cant find an appropriate one. It is so cool to be receiving it from my 4th sis. She also bought a Ford Sports Car for him :)

My helper really dotes on my boys. She has never forgotten to get them presents over the years. This year, she bought some coloring/writing books & also stickers for Zac. How thoughtful of her :):)

Zac is 1 yr older this year & I can see that he is more aware that it is his special day unlike previous years. I hope today will mark his beginning of a new chapter in his life with new learnings & achievements :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU, my boy :):)

116 Hugs for Amos & Zac:

darlene said...

happy birthday Zac...looks like a wonderful day!...
love the cake...What a wonderful Mummy you have!

J@n!ce said...

Colleen : Thanks for the visit & warm greetings to Zac. The cake is really yummy. The 1.5kg is too big for my family now that we still have some left in the freezer :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Darlene : Thanks, I love seeing smile on my boys & a little effort will make them so jumping with joy. That's the best gift for me in return :)

Janice Ng

Blur Ting said...

Wow! Happy birthday Zac! What a lot of presents! I want some cake too!

Bobby said...

Happy Birthday Zac!!!!! Yay!!!!!
Wow, he's just beaming in these pictures. What an awesome looking cake!

Mommy & Daddy sure love their great sons:) I hope that cake tastes as good as it looks! What a smile on Zac's face. It's got me smiling too.

I have my party hat on!!!!!

J@n!ce said...

Blur Ting : We still have some left in the freezer cos its ice-cream cake. Its nice to eat it very the days to rem how wonderful the cake is :):)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Bobby : Zac is so beaming with joy & he sure knows that it is his birthday today. I wonder what he will ask later on when he wakes up cos he mention not going to school today bcos it is his birthday he wants to go out & play. He want to go to the zoo & beach. That's a tough one for me at the moment cos the zoo & the beach are at 2 ends of the country... LOL :)

The cake is really yummy if you love ice-cream. It has 2 layers of flavours. I chose cookies n cream & madcademia nut. However, the latter need to pay an extra S$5 just for that. So I changed it to blueberry instead :)


Janice Ng

Bobby said...

Ha ha ha...you can't blame him but that's a lot to ask! I had to work on Christmas day the past 5 years. I don't remember last Christmas at all.

Tell him he'd better enjoy being a kid while it lasts! I always said, "I can't wait to grow up!" Now I wish I had kept my big mouth shut. I wanna be a little kid again:):):)

Santa Claus said...

Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Birthday Zac. Oh I'm so confused Ho! Ho! Ho!

Santa ô¿ô

J@n!ce said...

Bobby : Same, I once said that too & regret cos its nice being a little kid. No worries & always hanging around mummy & daddy :)

I am the only one in my own family who had birthday celebration every year till 6 yrs old. How good consider that I've got 7 other siblings. Its really good to be a little gal once again :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Santa : I love the merry birthday. What a cute Santa greetings.

Hugs to Uncle Santa :):)

Hi Janice,

Janice, we are very proud of you to raise such a lovely kid.

We believe that Zach will be a somebody that will be able to contribute to our society under the care of your love.

From the pictures you have posted, Zach isnt missing anything on his birthday.

Not only the gifts that he receives, but the best gift ever that is, the love of both beautiful parents.

We are sure both Zach & Amos will grown up to filial boys to you and your husband and we will always pray for their happiness.

*The NAFA TEAM sang in unison*

"Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you, Zachary
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to YOU !!"

Happy Birthday, Zachary =)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Adrian : I realized that Nick & you like to use the word "mighty". I've learned to use the word appropriately nowdays too. hehe ;p

This year, I took the least time to decide on the birthday cake design cos Zac wanted Mickey, so I just zoom in to the Mickey selection & immediately chose this one which is the best for a birthday bash :)

Janice Ng

J@n!ce said...

Emila : Thanks, children just love singing the birthday song & blowing off the candle. He wanted to cut the cake again last Sun when we are over at my parents cos my sis bought her the presents. I told her he has celebrated earlier with Daddy at home whether he remembered? Luckily he said "Yes" *phew* :):)

Hey Zac Happy bday! =)

JaMiLLa said...

Janice dear,

I am a photo observer! I almost observe every of ur photos and even others blog photo.

The Happy Birthday cake is really so thoughtful for you to choose that. You might not notice what that Mickey mouse design is meant for. But I know!!!!

Mickey Mouse has alot of friends to celebrate his birthday with him!!!! Just like you helped Zac to celebrate his birthday with us in BLOGOSPHERE!!! Thats so thoughtful of you that you might not know. But I notice it. U can still choose Mickey Mouse design with himself alone celebrating himself but U did not. U get me, my dear?

When we CHOOSE something in every second, thats a reason behind it. Like why you choose this color and not that color? Why u choose this photo or not that photo? Ah HUH! There's a meaning on it.

I love that mickey mouse friend gathering celebration photos. It's not just a simple cream and ice-cream to color the cake. But an underlying meaningful!!!

Janice, I hope you can write a note on this fantastic cake for memorandum so that Zac will get the inside meaningful and feel how much love that you give to him unconditionally.

Anyway,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO

ZZZZZZZZ AAAAAAAA CCCCCCCC
ZZZZZZZZ AAAAAAAA CCCCCCCC
ZZZZZZZZ AAAAAAAA CCCCCCCC
ZZZZZZZZ AAAAAAAA CCCCCCCC
ZZZZZZZZ AAAAAAAA CCCCCCCC
ZZZZZZZZ AAAAAAAA CCCCCCCC

(Is it unique?)

My hair is really messy, however, it din show out in the photo cos I have been combing & putting a lot of serum on it prior to going out that day. So it looks more manageable. I get my maid to help me dye my hair 2 days ago. Now its in a nice shade I like. However, it is very dry loh :)
