Eid 2014 Celebration: Open House & Aulia' Birthday Celebration

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Finally, after a month of fasting, Ramadhan gives way for Syawal to shine. And you know what that means! It's Raya Raya Raya!! This year my in-law decided to host an open house to celebrate our Eid festive by inviting all the relatives and neighbors on the third day of Syawal. This 'open house' is also in conjunction with our Doa Selamat event and to celebrate our daughter 3rd birthday.. 
We called in the caterers and I did the DIY 'mini candy buffet' for the guests. My MIL made rendang and we bought lemang to served to the all the guests. As usual, everyone has their own task. My FIL is in-charged with the invitations, the boys with their furniture arrangement and housekeeping while the girls are busy with the food preparation. Well, everything is organized when everyone gave a helping hand I can say :)

The open house begin at lunch hour and people starts to filled up our living hall. We served tea and cookies for the unties and cousins while other guests have their lunch outside.
Ooops!
Sorry for the overexposed 'thighty whities' because somebody is way too focus on enjoying her dipped chocolate apple! Can't get her away from chocolate. Of course after a while someone decided to wiped her dirty hands on the dress. Sigh!

Then it's time for the cake cutting and presents opening session. I just love seeing how these lovely kids look so excited singing the birthday song and wanted to blow candles even there is no candle on that cake. Aulia' was a shy, meek little thing and clung to me when everyone singing her the birthday song. hehe. But somewhat after few minutes she started to really come out of her shell when she received her birthday gifts.
The Sophia First cake was sponsored by Mak Yang!

This is Khalif, Aulia's second cousin from father side, giving a helping hand to unwrapped all the gift. So cute! 
She's quite a patient girl when it comes to opening gift. So much class and self-control, like her mother. lol.
 Thank you to everyone who gave presents to Aulia' on her birthday :) Hope ya'all had a GREAT Eid. I know we did.


And here to a blessed gathering... one last time family photo before everyone's leaving.
