Benjamin turns 9


For dinner we started with Spaghetti and Meatballs with Honey Butter Rolls.

As soon as dinner finished Louisa gave Benjamin the gift he's always wanted.. a woopie cushion.

He was so excited about his new bible. Thankfully it's large enough that it can't fit in his pocket and go through the wash...

Not one, but two Lego cakes.

He was soooo excited. What big eyes and teeth you have Ben.
He was pleased and got all the candles blown out with nine big breaths.

Can you tell how proud he is to stand by his daddy? Daddy wasn't home for his celebration last year.
Now for the action. A Star Wars Lego game. I tried to play too but they made fun of me.

Benjamin, we love you so much. You are a treasure to this family and we have delighted greatly over you these past 9 years. May God grant you many more!

These pictures are adorable and the one of Jake and Ben made me tear up a little. What a sweet, loving family you have.

When we sat down to supper last night, I wondered what Ben would pick for his birthday meal. Great choice! Thanks for the pictures. Who is the first victim of the whoopie cushion?
