A Birthday for Ben

{we love artichokes!}

{how much can you fit in at once?}

{Mark reading to the kids}

We celebrated Ben's birthday this week. How time as flown! We invited our friend Mark over for dinner and while we did get the birthday banners out, I was feeling a little tired and decided to put out our regular dishes. That met with great disapproval from Pieter, who demanded the china. Who would have known that we've already made such great traditions with our birthday parties around here. So, I got out the linens, china and crystal and the kids loved it. We also wore our "birthday"shirts that we bought in Merida for Juliana's first birthday. I asked Ben what he wanted for dinner and he asked for Chicken Marbella, one of our favorite dinners. We had carrot cake and everyone enjoyed it.
