Ben's 1st Playground Experience






We took Ben to the playground while we were at Hopkins County Stew Festival. Several things we have learned about Ben. We love the slide, we hate the swing....at last for now this is our official diagnosis. Better luck next time I guess! :)

Last Weeks' Project



I spent the last week refurbishing this antique horse for Ben's 1st B-day. This horse is actually pretty special. It is 37 years old and has been a toy for 58 kids, grandkids and great grandkids and came from an old lady here in Kaufman county.

I sanded it down, stained it mahogany and put some lacquer on it. We ripped out the mane and tail and replaced it with new yarn. Check it out!

Hopkins County Stew Festival!

Last weekend we went to David's 10 Year High School Reunion....but before that we attended Hopkins County Annual Stew Festival which was super. Ben did not care for the stew itself but rather enjoyed his crackers, potatoes and cheese. Boys!

Ben is almost 10 1/2 months old!






Ben loves to play with others but he also loves to be in charge and play by himself. Some mornings Ben does not know which toy to run to first! He loves them all! I think most of all Ben loves his Bulldozer (that was given to Ben by Sasha for temporary upkeep), he plays with it everyday. He especially loves to take the seat off and then chew on it.

Dallas Arboretum with Cousin Sasha, Aunt Asel and Aunt Monica!

Last Sunday we got to go to the arboretum with our favorite people. We really missed cousin Sasha and the boys played so well together! Thank goodness for little boys!

I just love my Aunt Monica and Uncle Bubba!

Aunt Monica and Uncle Bubba bought me a red tshirt when I was born.....I can now wear it.......What does that T-shirt say? Well....it says "Baby Bubba" and I love it!

Play Time

As many of you know...one of Ben's many talents is his ability to play by himself. I think he enjoys that time actually because at school he has to share his toys...at home, well the only competition is mom and dad! LOL!

Ben spent about an hour the other day just playing on the living room floor with his many hand-me-downs! Fun Fun Fun!

BTW, today Ben waived for the first time after his teacher asked him to waive to her at the end of the day and what do you know? He actually did it!
