L didn't quite know what to think of his birthday party...he enjoyed the cake and the balloons but it wasn't until every eye was on him, "Happy Birthday" was sung, and presents were placed in front of him that we could see the wheels start turning in his head. It was as if he thought, "Who me?" After some gentle and not-so-gentle prodding from the older and wiser kiddies he finally figured out it was he that should open the presents. L. kept saying "Wow" about everything...it made all the giftgivers feel good :) Mom served beef stew, baguettes and salad (Tiffany's yummy contribution) for the guests and lemon cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for dessert. Coincidentally all the B cousins were in town so it was a real treat to have everyone from Ben's side of the family there together.
