Easter, 2013

This year for Easter, we matched with minty greens and blue colors.

The Orange family
Easter goodies from "Grandpa" and "Grandma" Garland.

Easter buckets.

Everyone got sticker activity sets featuring their favorite characters.  Spiderman for Benjamin.

Cars for Peter.

Everyone got multicolored sidewalk chalk as well.

They also got bubbles, and a bit of candy.

Benjamin's 8th Birthday

Once again, I am behind on blogging the events of the kids' lives...

Benjamin's 8th birthday was February 17th, 2013.  Since this was a Sunday, the day we usually have family over for parties, we had his party on his actual birthday!  Of course, the theme was Spiderman...who else?! :)

From the Dempsey family.  (I believe the hand-drawn picture was from/by William)

Star Wars/Endor Lego set!

The drawing from Will.

From the Woodard family.

A whole box of mixed Lego!  Benjamin likes building with Lego, so these gifts are perfect right now!
From Grandpa & Grandma Woodard...Benjamin is thinking "What am I supposed to do with a whole bag of paper rolls?"  I said "CRAFTS!"  since he loves to craft things out of the stuff I throw into the recycle bin.

The card from Grandpa and Grandma.

Crafty stuff!

The card from Dad, Mom, Anna, and Peter.

Gifts from Dad, Mom, Anna, and Peter.

Spiderman puzzle.

A football.

A car Lego set.

The cake.  Cakes, actually.  Chocolate on the left (the building) and white on the right (Spiderman).

We had invited Grandpa Orange, but he did not come.  We also invited the kids' "adoptive" Grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Garland, but Mr. Garland had to work.  They later sent their gift.
