And Lady Gaga (my cousin in Genevieve's tutu).
Genevieve gave Ben a present, her own creation entirely, as soon as she woke up. So sweet.
Being that it's Holy Week, we did Ben's birthday a bit on the fly. . . .Mr. Thrift did the racer dog, Dodger, on the cake beautifully and then I slapdashed the words as I ran by.
But the birthday boy noticed none of the shortcuts and all of the glory. I love the simplicity of a child's joy - so inspirational.
Inspirational, indeed! Oh, to be so easily satisfied! My oldest boy's birthday is tomorrow. Is it possible that I can be the mother of a 20 year old? It doesn't feel like it!
That dog is awesome.
And so is the balloon puddle---I think it's actually classier than hanging them. (Not that I ever thought of it before now...)
My boys love singing the birthday song. They sing it throughout the day! It doesn't matter if it's their birthday or someone else's : )
Chocolate cake with peanut butter is my FAVORITE kind of cake. And no one else in my family has the good taste to share my opinion. So sad.
