Benny is 4

Our dear Benny has turned 4!
His Birthday yesterday was such a special, lovely day. Turning 4 has been especially important to him. It seems to be quite a milestone. I remember Rebe feeling like this too.
He awoke so full of joy and excitement,
After opening presents and getting dressed he had the treat of being invited into Rebe's classroom at school. She had told us about her class playing with magnets and had asked her teacher if she could bring Benny in to show him. It was very exciting :-)

When we got home we hijacked the Buddies meeting for the week and turned it into a birthday bash (we hadn't planned anything anyway so everyone was happy with that)
We played some party games like pin the tail on the donkey
and Greg showed us a great guessing game
that was so much fun :-)
We decorated biscuits with coloured icing and smarties

They looked so jolly when finished,
we sat in the garden and had a picnic of fruit and bread
while I put the candles on the spam cake :-)

The festivities continued through out the day and ended with another cake and jelly and ice cream with our neighbour. We also opened the last of the presents including an amazing builders outfit complete with real hammer and nails from Bubs and Man...I hear hammering as I type this now.
It was such a happy day and so many times did I hear the Angel family phrase:
'4 people can do just about anything!'


  1. Four is a wonderful age, I remember my youngest Son waking up on his fourth birthday and being surprised that his pyjamas still fitted him. He had expected to grow out of them overnight now he was four!
    Happy birthday to Benny!
