Birthdays and Banana Pancakes

Today's Wonder of the World is...Birthdays and Banana Pancakes!

I can hardly believe that 17 years ago today I gave my mother quite the birthday present!
Happy Birthday Mom! Happy Birthday Ben!

It seems that just yesterday Ben was a little guy, running us all ragged with his daredevil ways,

begging for "yemonade" and to kiss us "with his yips." Now he's 6'3" and still keeps us laughing.

Plus he introduces us to good music!
Enjoy a nice plate of Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson. With a candle on top!



Have a wonder-full Wednesday, y'all!
Love, Becky

Ahh, sniff, sniff. Doesn't it make you sad and happy at the same time? Hollon will be two tomorrow, time sure does fly!

Happy Birthday Ben.

Seems like one day they're funny little rugrats - next day they're buying houses & having kids of their own. Goes by way too fast.

They grow up SO fast. I wish my three lived closer. At least one daughter (with her husband and child) recently moved back to SC from Denver, but they are still two hours away. Son is in DC; other daughter is moving from Nashville to VA in two weeks (the Army decides where she goes.) Belated Happy Birthday to Ben.

Meant to ask - What's that on Ben's leg?

In the first pic? A purple cast from breaking it on a trampoline. One of his many visits to the ER.
