Happy Happy Birthday B!

All of the celebrating we didn't pull off for Todd's birthday got dumped onto B's birthday this year.  We flew to Arizona on November 18th, so we spent B's birthday this year with cousins!
There were presents, of course.  Grandma and Grandpa gave him a big set of emergency vehicles that is played with daily.  In B's opinion, one cannot have too many cars or fire engines.  
 Lots of miniature rescue dramas were enacted on this floor.
 B had asked for a space shuttle cake to eat with his cousins and his friends.  I am a nice mom, so I let him stir.  He loves being a part of the process.
 The cake was too hot to frost, so we went to the park to play with all of the Knight cousins.  It was nice and warm in Tucson.

 This is my rendering of a space shuttle cake.
 About a minute after I finished frosting it, the cousin crowd gathered to sing "Happy Birthday."
 Thirty seconds later, this is all that remained.
 If that wasn't enough celebrating, we went to Chuck E. Cheese for pizza for dinner.  The kids all seemed to enjoy themselves.
Happy birthday, Benjamin!  I'm excited to see what 3 will bring to our funny, feisty, generous, snuggly boy.
