Bennett's Ninth Birthday

Yes, you heard me right! My little boy turned NINE! It was clear back in October; I am still trying to stay faithful to documenting things here on my blog, and that is where I am at. I am a lucky lady to have this boy to call my own. He is a joy to raise. It is so fun to watch him learn, grow, and accomplish so many of his goals. He is so driven and is very wise for his age. At nine years old,  he loves basketball, running, reading, books, playing the piano, writing, math, and playing games (card games and board games.)

He had school that day, so he got up and got ready for that. We always do at least one gift in the morning, along with a new outfit. Bennett got Perplexus Epic, which he wanted very badly.

His birthday was a little different this year. My dad had back surgery that day, so of course my parents couldn't come to visit. Russ's parents also weren't available to come that day. So instead of a big party at home, we went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner (my kid's all love steak), then visited my dad in the hospital. It was pretty late when Bennett finally got open his presents and have his cake. We did get a visit that night from Russell's sisters.

Here is the day in pictures:
