Benji.Boppa.Birthday.Bunch of photos

Since their birthdays are only 1 day apart.. we celebrated them together! Boppa and Benji. Naturally we had a cowboy themed party. He wanted a horse cake. So I made a horse out of rice-krispies. Meatballs, gravy, potatoes, green beans and the famous broc/caul salad was the menu.. with a few more side items. With 9 cousins and 8 grown-ups, this house was 'a-hopping' with good times.

His cake.

The sweet, adorable birthday boy who shouldn't be turning 6 already!

Benji is absolutely identical to his Daddy. I've seen pictures of Benjamin making the same expression. Man.. there is NO denying that boy is his child! The only proof there is that he is MY son.. is I remember giving birth to him.
Little Miss Katie-bug waiting for the party to start.
Our family of 6..
My in-laws :)
Pre-cake/candle-blowing chaos
These pictures aren't too clear, but I love it anyways. John, the king of blowing out candles, is laughing, because he yet again, blew them out before it was time! Boppa and his 9 grandkids. Why in the world didn't we have Gma sit with them?? (Just messing with some editing)
Present time!
Within a 2 week period we have 5 birthdays to celebrate on my husband's side. Actually from Sept-April we have 16 birthdays out of 18 people. (that's including our newest arrival this sometime this winter. Not OUR newest arrival.. but our niece/nephew.. just don't want anyone getting the wrong idea!) Then we add anniversaries in there.. we do lots of celebrating around here!
