Gentle Ben Turns 4!

Yes, yes, it's another birthday post! February is just chock full. My little Benjamin turned four years old today. Seems like just yesterday that I was in the delivery room awaiting the arrival of my very first boy! He's such a sweet, gentle little guy. I couldn't ask for a better boy. It seems odd to do such a short list, but since I did it for my sisters, I suppose I can come up with four reasons I love Benjamin Walker Reynolds...


1. He has a GREAT sense of humor. He gets a big kick out of his sisters, and especially his rotten little baby brother (aka "Stitch")


2. I've never seen a 3 (now 4) year old kid who can put a puzzle together the way he can. He's a whiz.


3. He looks like a Precious Moments kid (or so I'm told). I just think he's got the dang cutest face and the most winning smile of anybody around. When he smiles, his whole face lights up.
4. He's absolutely huggable. He never refuses a hug and a kiss from his mommy. I hope he never outgrows that one.

Now, for those of you blog stalkers who have visited Polly's blog and seen her amazing Sponge Bob cupcakes and other such nonsense (uh, I mean "works of art"), don't judge my cupcakes! They were made with love (and tons of butter and powdered sugar). Polly, you know I love your cupcakes to pieces. You've got the best cupcakes on the block, baby. I'm just jealous, that's all.


Your family loves you, Benji boy!

Yesssss! Kristi says my cupcakes are better than Polly's! Of course, Kristi LIES to people, but I want to believe her this time. Keri: I like your idea of hooking those two up. We would have some SERIOUSLY gorgeous grandkids! We'll talk more on this later. (o:

Kristi LIES to people, that is a little harsh "just Jacey", I guess I need to start writing, "just joking Jacey". Or JJJ. ;)

Ok, what I MEANT to say was: Kristi HUMORS people. Tells them what they want to hear. A little better than lying.
