Happy Birthday Benjamin!!

It's time for another birthday! Benjamin turned 6 today!

I thought I would share a few baby pictures....

Fast foward six years....

What Benjamin wanted most for his birthday was to go to a hockey game with Daddy. Saturday night they went to see two local teams play. They enjoyed hotdogs, cotton candy and Dr. Pepper. You know, birthday food. ;0)

Enjoying the game...this must have been before the sugar high!

Yesterday, we had Phillip's family over to celebrate. My friend, Pea made chicken fajitas last week and I've been craving them ever since, so that is what we had!

Benjamin got some fun gifts from Nana, Papa and his Uncles and Aunt.

You can't go wrong with a Lightning McQueen toy!

Practicing with a new sword...

Benjamin wanted a Dirt Cake for his birthday.

Basically it is layers of vanilla pudding, crushed oreos and gummy worms. It was *really* good!

Silly Uncle Caleb!

What's your favorite part, Benjamin?! :0)

The plans for today are to play with new toys, go to Blockbuster and pick out a movie for tonight and just have fun being six!

Happy Birthday to my handsome boy!

Oops! I meant to correct the white balance on those hockey pics before you needed them. The ice is supposed to be white.

Great post!

Happy birthday Benjamin!
I told Grace what her name was in Japanese on her birthday, so now I am going to tell you what yours is.

Do you want the good news or the bad news????

The bad news is that there is no actual name "Benjamin" in Japanese, but you would write it phonetically like this:
ベンジャミン ー BE-N-JA-MI-N

The good news is that the name "Ben" can be translated as..........poo! (Don't tell your mother!)
