Yesterday Dave and I went to Ben's house for his birthday party.. He was with his Dad on Tues.November 12 when it was his b-day but now he is with his Mom for a week and it's time to celebrate.. He wanted a marble cake so his Mom found a camouflage cake that would be good for Mind Craft theme.. She found a small toy in the toy Dept. of WalMart and ta da...the cake was complete.. Ben really likes playing Mind Craft.. I don't understand it but he does and it keeps him quite busy..
      Aunt Jodie sent him a book of Skippy Jon Jones and the stuffed Skippy Jon Jones.. What a delightful book.. He was so excited when he saw the stuffed Skippy Jon Jones.Skippy Jon Jones is a Siamese Cat and he has such big ears and a big head he thinks he is a Chiwawa..spelling all wrong , there is even a little Spanish language. It's a really fun book.  . He was elated...jumping up and down and hugging hugging with all his might.. It was so fun to watch.. His mom has lots of pictures..Even a video of us singing Happy Birthday and blowing out the candles.. I have so many great memories of birthdays I had in the past..Poor Dave has none.. His family did not recognize birthdays.. We had a great time and Ben had a good time playing with everything he got for his birthday...


Happy 7th Birthday Ben ..Yippee Ya--Hoo~!
We are going to the Cedar Rapids library today to check out some Skippy Jon Jones books.. and go to Ben's favorite restaurant... Pizza Ranch...
Have a Tiggeriffic Day~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)

It is amazing how adding one toy to the top of a cake makes it just what kids have asked for.
