Ben's Birthday Party

(Sadie shown above trying to do thumbs up.
She pumps her hands open -closed - open - closed and thinks she's doing 'thumbs up')

(Sadie can be seen above helping Ben unwrap a present.)

(We have Shadow again - we have share custody with my parents.
Sadie absolutely adores him, but Ben and I detest him!)

(Sadie has decided she is two years old! When we ask her how old she is she now insists on putting up two fingers. She has even started pointing with two fingers and when she dances she puts two fingers up on each hand and wiggles.)

(Topic of most importance: what did we have for dessert? A mighty fine (if I do say so myself) Creme Brulee)

For more pictures from this day go to Sarah's blog. She has taken on the challenge of posting at least one picture a day for an entire year! Oh, and special thanks to Sarah who took these pictures :)

I heard your dessert was wonderful. Wish we could have been there. Thanks for the pictures and thanks to Ben for being the trailblazer into a fourth decade of life. Now I'll have someone to talk to when I'm preparing to turn 30;)

WOW!!! I know you won't believe me when I say this, but Sadie looks soooo different! She sure is growing up!

I think Sadie looks a lot like Marrissa in those pictures. How is Bret and Shanon doing with the new little one? Happy belated birthday Ben!
