Happy Birthday Ben !

My Brother Ben came to Taylor on Thursday with his family, to celebrate his birthday. We don't get many birthday's around here, so the kids were excited to throw a party! Ever since the day we found out that he was coming, the kids have been scheming and planning. They decided that the party should be a surprise.(Where everyone hides and jumps out to "scare" the person who's having a birthday.)
We sent Ben with Adam to go pick up some Pizza. While they were gone we put up balloons, and set up for the party.
When Ben got back we turned off the lights and hid. He came in, and we all yelled "Surprise!!!"
Boy was he ever surprised.(wink,wink) I'm sure he never suspected a thing.
After the party we all went out to see the Bar-D-Wranglers preform in Snowflake. They entertained us with their "Old West" country music and comedy.
The rest of the weekend was filled with buggy rides, games, and a trip to play in some snow. As an added bonus, my sister Amanda and her husband Nathan came up to play too. We had a great time, and hope they come back for another visit soon.


  1. Looks like a super fun weekend! Miss you so much! Braxton looked like he was having a blast... he he!

  2. Man, you guys are always having fun. By the way, I just posted another comment to your comment on my blog. By the way, your first comment is right on about many circumstances, I never thought about it that way. Principal wise it is correct, and fits in to our roles as mothers.
