Benjamin's 7th Birthday

For Benjamin's birthday, February 17th, 2012 I made cupcakes for him to take to his class for snack time.

I forgot to bring the camera, but I did get pictures of the cupcakes I made:

Benjamin's birthday was, of course, Spiderman themed again!

I made an actual cake for the big birthday party on Sunday the 19th, so for his actual birthday (and subsequent parties) we just had decorated cupcakes.

(Spiderman bubbles)

(Spiderman mini-notebook and markers)

(Spiderman foam Frisbee)

(Spiderman fabric he had seen at JoAnn's and asked for,
I'll make something with it later)

(Spiderman kite)

This year, we let him invite a few friends over for a low-key birthday party/play day. He invited 5 kids: one was sick, we didn't hear from one, and three came (Silas, Ian, and Raya). His friends came over on Saturday the 18th.

We bought little wooden magnet kits 2 for $1 at JoAnn's for the kids to color. This is Ian acting silly with his magnet:

Silas wanted to stand beside Benjamin when he opened the card to point out that there was a Spiderman mask inside the card.

Opening the gift from Ian (a collectible yellow car).

Raya forgot a gift (I had said they weren't required) so she gave Benjamin her Spiderman magnet:

Later that day, Grandpa Orange came to celebrate Benjamin's birthday with us.

After church on Sunday, the 19th, my [Michigan] family came for lunch, presents, and cake & ice cream.

Wow, I cannot get over how quickly everybody is growing up! How is it possible that Ben & the three girl cousins are seven already??

I know Raya! She was at both of the VBS's that Amazing Grace had and her grandparents go to Ashley :)

Yeah, it's amazing how fast they grow up!

I think Benjamin has mentioned that he's seen Raya's grandparents at Ashley before.
