Our little boy has officially been in our lives (out of the womb) for over a year now. He has been quite the adventure, definitely our greatest adventure, but not always the easiest adventure.
Since his birthday was the day before Mother's Day, I decided to combine his party with the Mother's Day celebration, and host both at once.
|Bennett on his birthday. It was a "stay-in-jammies-all-morning" type of day.|
Bennett has quite the obsession with balls. For his birthday we got him this kiddie pool with several balls, and he loves it. Never enough balls for this boy!
I cannot say that I have been to a Mother's Day meal, where the theme was surrounded by foxes. Nobody seemed to mind, I think the kids may have actually enjoyed it for a change.
This fox cake was much easier to make than I expected. My brother-in-law walked into the house, took a look at it, and commented on what a cute kitty cat the cake was. I do admit, that it has a striking resemblance to Garfield, but nonetheless, I was going for a fox.
We played a few games with the kids.
Bennett enjoyed all the action going on. Usually his house is not near this exciting.
It was special to have both Nate's mom, and mine at the party.
As I suspected, Bennett did not want much to do with his cake. That is just fine. He will probably make up for that in the years to come.
The crazy coup was his gift from Grandma and Grandpa Z. It has been a hit!
He even shared it with his friend Kaylee the other day.
He also spends much time in his swing from Grandma and Grandpa F.
What a well-loved little fella!
Bennett Clay, I could go on and on and write about how special you are to your Mommy and Daddy. We cherish you as our little son, and love you more than words can describe. We pray that you will grow up and make Jesus proud. You are our sweet gift from heaven, and we thank God for the gift He has given us in you. We are unworthy to be your parents, and we do not take the responsibility lightly. May we strive to be the best examples for you. Thanks for putting up with us, because many days we have absolutely no clue what we are doing. You are our greatest adventure!!
We love you sweet boy!!
Hard to believe we have a one-year-old.
Happy Birthday Bennett!!
