Happy Birthday Benjamin!

I guess I don't have to worry about Benjamin turning 13. I never got used to that. Today he turns 14. Maybe I'll be able to wrap my ol' brain around that better. At least I have a year to get used to it.

Happy Birthday Benjamin!

So first thing when he got up I accosted him with a photo op. He's such a good sport. There was only mild protesting... "Mom.. .I just got up... my hair isn't even combed yet!" Love that spikey hair! Even without it he is plenty tall enough.

Normally I would just have a solo pic of the kid, but a dear friend of mine in Japan (hey Shellee, this is for you!) was commenting to me the other day on the phone how the pics of the kids are great, but if they aren't standing with Dale or me, then it is hard to see how tall they are getting.

So Shellee, how's the above pics for comparison?

WOW!!!!! (or sugoi (sue-goh-ee) which means wow in Japanese.) He is REALLY tall! Hard to wrap our minds around that one, although malachi is now in size 12 pants, sigh.

Thanks for the wonderful pics! It's a great comparison! BTW, I LOVE the secret project, it's great!!!!!

Still chuckling over just how tall Ben is now!!! Duane came in and said "wow, that boy's shooting up some, eh?" I second that.
