Picture Barrage

I'm going to try to make up for a total lack of recent blog posts by just plastering pictures all over the place.  Between work and preparing for Ben's birthday (the kid just turned five!!!), I've been a leetle busy lately.
Ben shows off his work at a Kindergarten Open House.
Okay, so I've taken to rewarding him with a doughnut after a good piano lesson.  His compliance and engagement during lessons has improved.

Ben's birthday party theme:  The Sorcerer's Apprentice

His specially requested birthday dinner:  Potato leek soup
Five years old?!?!?  How did that happen???

The kids' party the next day:  Making sorcerer hats.  Note the Mickey Mouse cupcakes (cookies for ears).

Make your own pizza!

We used to always make pizzas at my best friend Amber's birthday parties while growing up! One of my favorite memories (and she's still my best friend too, haha)!

Looks like Ben had a lot of fun! Awesome theme!

That was a wonderful party! We were there! Our grandbaby is not a baby anymore....he's 5 years old! Big boy!
The corn maze and the hay ride look like fun! Go Ben! Love, Grammy Wilson

You did a great job with his party! I love the idea of a Sorcerer's Apprentice theme. It is amazing how fast they change from babies to big kids. Happy fifth birthday, Ben!
