Ben really enjoyed his 6th birthday with Papa, Nanny, Uncle Terry, Aunt Janet, the cousins, and the rest of us. He was asking about opening presents at 7:30 in the morning, but he held out until the dinner party, although it may have been the longest day of his life. We are blessed by his great smile and loving hugs and kisses.
All the little boys had a great time playing with the new toys, even Gabe, who was very enthusiastic about the whole event.
The great thing about birthdays is left over cake for breakfast, or in this case, after chores are done.
Ben got to share his birthday with a new friend, Annalise Elizabeth Melotti, who was born at 1 am on this day. She weighed 7 lbs. 15 oz. and is a beautiful and wonderfully healthy baby! Congratulations to her family, what a precious bundle God has given you! Great job Liz!!!
