Benjamin's 4th Birthday

Tuesday, February 17th, 2009 was Ben's 4th birthday. Daddy took a vacation day that day so we were able to have the birthday party on his actual birthday, which was a lot of fun for Benjamin.

He had a Star Wars theme to his party, though we weren't able to find much in the way of Star Wars party decorations (without going to an expensive store), so we just used my Star Wars things as decorations, most of which are R2-D2. :)

We weren't able to spend a lot of money on gifts for him, but he enjoyed everything he received. I made him an ABC book using pictures of toys and objects around the house, which he loves the most I think. Another favorite toy of his is a plastic fishing pole he got from his uncle & aunt Dan & Becky. The pole has gotten a bit broken, but he still loves it and carries it around almost the entire day! I even had to tell him he couldn't sleep with it!

Here are some pictures from the day:

Those are the cutest kids that I've ever seen. And with one more on the way too . . . :)

Every time I come here they seem to be getting bigger and bigger . . . My, how time flies . . . :)

I'm glad that Ben has such a nice birthday and that Daddy got time off to spend that special day with him . . . I imagine Daddy being there made it thousands of times more special for him; you only get to see your kids celebrate these special times once . . . <3

Those are all cute pictures, especially the picture of Ben hugging the plushie. I've always found young kids hugging their stuffed animals to be one of the sweetest things imaginable. <3

That R2-D2 cake looks so good . . . Ben looks so excited; look at that huge grin on his face. :D

*hugs* Hope things are well for you; I miss you so much. <3
