Well, another one of my little "angels" is celebrating a birthday today! Happy Birthday Sweet Ben!!
I can't believe he is already EIGHT years old, I still remember when Chels and Cam flew to Boulder to surprise me and give me the BEST news ever....that Benjamin was coming to our family!!
Ben, I have offered so many prayers for you, while you were in your momma's tummy, and since you've been here. I know Heavenly Father will continue to bless you keep you strong and healthy! You are so special to our whole family!
Here are some of my favorite pictures of us together:

All day Harrison has been chanting, "Happy Birfday Ben!" so I recorded this message from Harrison to one of his favorite cousins:
I told Ben today that I so appreciate the example that he is to Harrison. As Harrison's mother, I want him to have examples of big boys to look up to that are kind, sensitive, caring, smart, funny and love the Gospel and Ben embodies all those wonderful things!!
We love and miss you Ben and are sending Huge Birthday Hugs and Kisses all the way from the other side of the country : )
