Party Like Your're 9!

My baby Benjamin is 9 today! He is a bright shining ray of sunshine in my life. Ben is smart, charming, funny and a lot of work! I love him.

Nine years ago, I remember getting up around 5am to go to the hospital. The trees, telephone wires, houses, etc. were all covered in frost and ice. It looked like a scene right out of Dr. Zhivago. Later that night when it was just me and him, he grabbed my finger and I knew we'd be okay.

We are headed to Game World today with his buddies to party. He ordered a chocolate cake with chocolate creme filling and butter cream chocolate frosting. Yummo!

I know in a few years, he'll be a teenager and starting his adult life shortly after that. I'm going to soak up these times and treasure every minute I can with him!

I can't believe he's 9! Did they have fun at Game World? And more importantly...did YOU survive all the munchkins?

Happy Birthday to Ben!

Hope it was as awesome as it sounds.
