Happy Birthday Ben!
Today is Benny's 5th birthday! He had his friends over earlier today, they did a piñata, ate candy and had cupcakes topped with frosting which I think had more food coloring in it than sugar. That was his "friends party". Tonight is the "family party", where we will have chocolate cake with homemade chocolate frosting (no food coloring), and he'll receive his gifts from the family. His uncaring older sister didn't get him anything (I never go anywhere so I couldn't buy anything, and what could I possibly make that he'd enjoy? He gets a hug.), but several other people did. He'll be a very happy little boy with his wealth of all things StarWars and dinosaurs. :) I'll post some pictures tomorrow.
Hello! I am a bookworm, a baker, a babysitter extreme. A crazy big sister to 7 crazy siblings. Lover of music and fan of Jane Austen. Partner in crime with the Real Katie. I'm a Catholic and glad of it. I'm a perfectly well socialized homeschooler with enough good friends to make anyone happy. I'm a former OMer who firmly believes in the powers of duct tape and popsicle sticks. I like to write and I love Shakespeare!
So fare ye well, enjoy reading my amazingly fantastically stellar profile or blog (whichever ever page you just happen to be on at the moment), and never run with (or throw) scissors!
