Mr Bennett

Daniel's sister had her baby boy yesterday.   We went for a visit at lunch today and loved getting some baby snuggles!  They were testing a name while we were there so I can't announce it yet but I will tell you he is such a sweetheart!

Benson did not want to have his turn end.  He got a second chance to hold him and was sad when he had to let Kimber have another turn.

I love those chubby cheeks!

McKay's snuggles.

I quickly took my turn!  Well it was a long turn but I was quick to snatch him up!

He was happy as long as he was holding my fingers!

T was fascinated by her cousin.  She was really soft with him.  I had been prepping her at home for it!

McKay had a snack I guess!

Taylor had a turn and loved holding him so much!

She got really mad when we took him away!

More Birthday!

My Benson is 7.  I can't believe he is already that old!  I love him so much.  He is such a smart kid and loves to figure things out.  He is also pretty silly which can make our home a fun place.

Showing off a bit of his loot.

Like I said, silly.

Bens wanted to be Luigi for his birthday.  He borrowed a backpack and flashlight from Gramps so he could be from the new Luigi's Mansion game.

Kimber may look happy here but she was running away and get mad at me for taking a picture!
She and McKay were being the ghost's that Luigi needed to catch.

Ghosty Cakes.

McKay enjoyed running around with the foam finger.

Luigi's hat cake. 

This is one of Bens' favorite games to play!

Now that we have more space to live in Bens got a kid sized basketball hoop.  Uncle Jordan would be proud!

He was sad that he had 2 girlfriends after he blew out the candles.  I may have teased him a bit too much about the girls he told me he had crushes on.  Oops!

April Randomness

The past few months have been a crazy time for us.  We bought a house, moved into said house, had birthdays, school... You get the point!  I don't have many pictures from May but here are a few from April.

Taylor's first ponytail.

It was adorable but lasted about 5 minutes!

Taylor would leave the tape alone so I taped her face with what she unrolled.

McKay had to join in the fun!

The mythical Chocolate Pudding Monster.  They are a happy breed!

Miss T in the morning.  Hardly anything cuter!

Just the other day T wanted to sit on the toilet and wouldn't get off!

Easter Hunt

We had an Easter hunt at my parents house just before we headed back to Edmonton.  9/12 grandkids were there for it.  It was pretty fun!

McKay enjoyed playing dress up at Nana's.  Captain Cakes was reporting for duty!

Can you find Benson?  He is such a little monkey!

Birthday Boy turns 7... and 2!

Benson had a birthday a while back.  Ok about 1.5 months ago!  We had a birthday celebration Easter weekend when we were down at my parents house and were able to celebrate Sylas' 2nd birthday as well.

The birthday boys ready for action!

He loves hats and Spiderman so what could be better? 

Bens got an art kit.  He was pretty excited for that.

Bens thought that every Easter Egg had $10 in it because he got that as one of his presents.  Candy did hold a candle to that though!

Sylas showed off a few of his presents!

Papa Innis even wore the hat.  This was quite the hot commodity that afternoon!

Baby Shower

I have been so out of touch lately.  We have been busy moving, getting settled in and I hosted a baby shower for my SIL.

As per usual, I don't know how to pair down my pictures.  Well, I did get it paired down from 70 something!

For Rach's sake I hope baby comes soon but I really am root for Kimber's birthday.  Benson had a cousin born on his 5th birthday so it would be neat if Kimber had one born on her 5th birthday!  That is 2 weeks away and that little baby boy is measuring over 9 pounds already!
