Eleven years ago this afternoon, I gave birth to a precious little baby boy. He weighed in at a whopping 8 lbs, 7 oz! We called him our little Sumo wrestler. He was so cute! We named him Benjamin Ward, and he has brought us so much joy his entire life!

Ben has a gentle, giving spirit. He loves to do for others, and hates it when he sees people mistreated. He's very sensitive.

Ben also enjoys playing super heroes, reading, playing piano, listening to his Christian music cd's, watching movies, playing the Wii, and spending time with his family. (Sounds like I'm advertising him for a dating service, doesn't it?)

Anyway, we love this guy! And we are so thankful to God for bringing him into our lives!

This is Ben in his new jacket he got for his birthday. It's reversible, and you can see the other side in the picture at the top of this post.

Ben enjoy his musical birthday card. ("Hey now, you're an All Star, get your game on, go Play!")

Neal called this the "Breakfast of Champions!" Ben requested sausage balls and I threw in his favorite donut and a freshly made fruit smoothie!

HAPPY 11th BIRTHDAY, BEN!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Teresa, Tell Ben happy birthday from all of us. His new coat looks quite snazzy.

PS. I have a girl for him IF he's willing to move to Indiana :)

Wish Ben a happy birthday from our family! Yes, you sound like you're writing a personal ad, but I have to tell you that in the photos, I have been able to see that the things you said are true! I think you have been greatly blessed with both of your children!
