Ali's 11th birthday is not until Tuesday, December 22nd; but we had his party last Thursday as yesterday was the kid's last day before the Winter Break of three weeks!
He decided he wanted to go to his favorite place, Cafe Ceramique!! So, he invited a few friends and Amal and I just chilled. Amal was doing homework but couldn't concentrate and then decided she wanted to paint so she joined us.
From left front to other side: Tanya, Evelyn, Matthew, Jonathan, ALI, Sofia and my AMAL!
Jonathan, Tanya and Ali in action! We chose plates for all the kids and Ali chose a slightly larger one. It was really sweet as this was the first time that Ali used stencils and he chose a dinosaur. He chose a green for the background and then a darker green for the dinosaur. It was a stegosaurus and I suggested that the kids use their fingers for the spikes. It turned out really sweet. We had an artist write all the kids names around the plate. We pick it up tonight and we can't wait!!
We then went next door to Baskin Robbins and everyone got an ice cream and we put candles in them! No cake, no lunch! I will make a cake for him on his birthday itself!
We then handed out the party bags and the kids raked in! I bought some really good stuff and in the end, Ali put a lot of Halloween candies in there!!! I was like, hey!! I like my milk duds and stuff! We ended up walking around the mall as we finished a lot earlier than expected! They seemed to have fun but poor Amal (Ali kicked her out of the photo!) was bored to tears! It was good for her to have to do something she was not so keen on. We had masks in the party bags so Ali had them put it on and pose in front of the Christmas tree!
