As Ben carried Fritzie into the house, he said, “Yep, even as an adult, Valentine’s is the best holiday for a birthday– a festive atmosphere all day, everyone goes home from work early, and yet not such a big holiday that you feel overshadowed.”
Ben’s birthday celebrations spread over three days this year– go cart racing with the siblings on Saturday (and I LOVE that they did that), a Valentine/Super Bowl party on Sunday (didn’t you feel like every grocery store was having an identity crisis? Superbowl! Valentine’s! What to do?), and finally on Feb 14th.
It’s such a fitting birthday for Ben who truly loves his friends, co-workers, in-laws, siblings and especially Fritzie and Sammie.
Fritzie liked Ben’s book,
But he was MUCH more excited about the chocolate.
I always love the post-Valentine’s mess.
And there were a lot of beautiful Valentines, but maybe Xander’s stole the show…
Happy Birthday Ben! Let’s make it a three day celebration every year
That hat is so cute!!
What amazing traditions you have!! So much joy and celebration. And, I’m with Ellen. That hat is darling. xox
