I do not like odd numbers. I usually buy at least two or four of things when I go grocery shopping. If eight is every an option I pick it. Or if I have to, I'll settle for having an eight in whatever it is I'm doing. Also, when it's 2:22 or 3:33, etc. I always make a wish.
You might wonder what this has to do with Ben's birthday? Well, when you happen to be turning 30 on the 30th of a month, I think it's kind of a big deal. And I probably go a bit overboard on the celebrating. ... But, as I'm writing this, Ben has no idea what is about to happen.
I'm scheduling this post to go online after we've left the house so hopefully he doesn't check the blog between leaving the house and arriving at our friend's home where E is "going to be babysat".
I'll post pictures of the event later.
In the meantime, I scanned all of his childhood pictures into the computer and compiled a sixteen minute long video. Unfortunately, Youtube only allows fifteen minute videos so I had to cut it into two.
Hope you enjoy, Ben!
Also, in case you hadn't figured it out, I have your baby pictures ....
And Part two:
He was seriously one cute kid. Now I know where E gets it from.
