#633 28.

My sweet Benny Boy turned 28 years old today. We woke up around 8:30. I made buttermilk biscuits, he made ham and scrambled eggs and we had breakfast with Tom, Allison and Jesse while Ben opened presents.

He’s real shy.

Gift #1: Extra Dessert Delights apple pie gum. Very hard to find, so I ordered a bunch of it online because he’s in love with it.
Gift #2: A coach’s whistle for Wednesday nights in youth. 45 kids talk REAL loud.

Gift #3: Stationery so he can finally send notes on his own personal notecards to youth parents and Josh Nowell. I drew a little silhouette of Ben’s hair and beard. It looks just like him! Friendly.
Then gift #4: He’s been wanting one since he was a little boy…
A 1969 Chevelle SS. I couldn’t afford the real thing, so I got him one in miniature. I totally copycatted on the gift he gave me for my birthday!

This year’s gifts weren’t expensive since we’re making the biggest purchase of our lives next week, but with the surprise party + Ben’s brothers, it was just right.
I love you, Mitter Ben. Happy birthday!
