Happy 3rd Birthday Benjamin Jon!

It is official! Benjamin Jon is three years old!
Ben loves to sing and to count things. He also loves to hop around in his frog boots. That is why the Five Little Speckled Frogs song inspired his birthday cake this year.

Ben's 5 Little Speckled Frogs Cake has no candles because he insisted, "I don't wa-wanna birthday candles! I don't!". When he was much younger, he got startled at a birthday party by some candle flames in the dark followed by the eruption of loud cheering and clapping. He hasn't been okay with it since. We will just have to introduce that tradition slowly and gently at a later date.
Ben helped bake his own cake, so it was only fair that he got to try a little cake a day early. We will post more pictures after we cut into the real thing.
