Happy Birthday, Big Boy!

As promised, here are the pictures of Benen's birthday. I'm no shutter-bug and some of these turned out blurry, but it's all I got.

You're how old?? I don't know what's up with the intense look on Chad's face. LOL!

Ahhh, presents. Superhero toys wrapped in superhero paper. It's a boy's paradise. If you look behind Benen's head you will see my dad's feet. They're the ones with the pants rolled half way up his legs. My dad, business owner and fashion guru. LOL!

The unveiling. The look on his face is pure rapture. He got a Venom toy from his brothers.

If you can see past the glare, it's Venom and Sandman.

Yes, my child is wearing underwear on his head. Boxer briefs, to be exact. Why? you ask. Because his father thought it would be funny. He (Kolten) was not too impressed.

This is the Power Ranger cake I made for Benen. He picked out the pan and told me he wanted it to be the blue one, whose name is Maddison; we know this kind of stuff. It was a gluten-free cake made up of mostly blue and black icing. You can imagine what we all looked like after. It took me 3 1/2 hours to ice it. I am clearly not a professional, but he was pleased. Just don't count the number of fingers on his hand. ;-)

And here he is. What a handsome birthday boy!

Nice cake. Your efforst paid off. I too have stuck underwear on my boys head simply for my own enjoyment.

Great pix! Cute boys (Chad, too, of course, LOL).

And the underwear on the head? Must be a guy thing, cuz I don't get it.

Happy birthday to Brenden again.

Jenster said...

You really have gorgeous boys!

Love the cake. And I counted the fingers 'cause you told me not to.

Todd is 43 and he still wears underwear on his head.

Swishy said...

Sooo cute! Love those!

Becky said...

Your kids are darling, Shauna. And the cake turned out great!

LOL on the underwear on the head. My son has done that a few times, too, so I agree...it's gotta be a boy/guy thing.

Daisy said...

I counted six fingers. On the Power Ranger that is! LOL

What a gorgeous birthday boy! Brenden reminds me of my niece. They have the same coloring, and same expressions!

Kolten may not be impressed now, but give him a couple of years! ;o)

I'm not sure it's a guy thing. I know a 40ish woman known to do the underwear-head boogie on the way to the shower. Should I have just admitted that?

Travis - Thanks! I think the picture is cute, especially with that concerned look.

Marianne - Thanks, though Chad's wearing a weird expression. Don't know why. I thought the underwear thing was funny...what's wrong with me?????

Jenster - you're saying they'll never outgrow it?!

Swishy - Thanks. I think they're adorable, but I know I'm biased.

Becky - Boys will be boys...apparently no matter their age. LOL!

Daisy - Yup, there were six fingers on the one hand. The hand you can't see has only four. *rolls eyes* At least he still has ten! Underwear-head boogie? ROTFL!! Funny!

I'm a little later as usual =)

Happy Birthday to Benen! He's adorable.

I love the cake, looks professional to me! He's a POWER RANGER, so he's entitled to six fingers right? LOL!

Jen said...

He is so handsome! What a face!

Power Rangers! Whoo Hoo!!
