How do you celebrate birthdays?

on December 21, 2010

In our family we usually celebrate the 1st, 7th, 13th and 18th birthdays with parties. All years that fall in between have simple celebrations. No birthday is ever complete without a cake, blowing candles and singing “Happy birthday”.

My aunt who passed away years ago made some of the most awesome home-baked cakes. I wish I had pictures.

Ever since we were kids, Mama always tried to bake our birthday cakes but this was of course not always possible since she had her hands full with 5 children and no nanny. But with her first grandchild, she went all out.

Spongebob Squarepants looks a little bit kooky here. Except the cardboard, everything else is edible. =)

The little one was about to pounce on his cake even before we could get a good picture of it. Underneath all that icing is good yummy chocolate cake.

As a kid, I always looked forward to my birthday. Now that I have a kid of my own, it’s so much more fun celebrating birthdays. The nice part about it is the little one doesn’t care how much his gifts cost or how many guests came to  his party, he’s just happy to know it’s a special moment and that he can get away with (almost!) everything that day. =)
