Karen went all out having a Sesame Street themed birthday party & preparing the cupcakes to look like Cookie Monster and fruit and vegetable trays that looked like other muppet characters. We all enjoyed snacking on the fruit & vegies and dip, and she even bought us some pizza too.
After playing games and waiting for everyone to arrive, it was time for the candle & cake! Ben wasn't sure what to do, but loved watching the smoke afterward :)
~ Also, this is the pic I'm using for week 11:
He wanted to eat his cupcake with both hands! :)
He was a very careful eater, and wasn't very messy even after eating half of his cupcake. This look on his face reminds me of Arnold from "Diff'rent Strokes", "Whatchu talkin' 'bout, Grandma Mema" :)
And then a hug from Chuck E. himself. Ben wasn't quite sure what to make of the big guy:
I can't believe a year has gone by since he was born! It seems like only a few weeks ago that he looked like this:
I'm so glad that he is part of our family! He is such a fun little guy! Instead of walking, I'm pretty sure he's going to bounce around like Tigger, since he likes to bounce more than walk! He has the biggest smile for everyone he loves. Instead of talking quietly, he prefers to yell :) Such a sweet little guy, and he has Grandma completely wrapped around his little finger. Happy Birthday, dear Bentley! Grandma Mema loves you! ♥
