more january birthdays!
We celebrated Ken and Ben's birthdays tonight. Ben's birthday is later in the month, but he is going back to college tomorrow, so we wanted to celebrate him early.
It was actually quite fun assembling a combined party for the two of them. It gave me a chance to contemplate them as a father and son and to think about how alike they really are. They decided upon a meal (Ben's favorite)--sausage linguine with salad and garlic bread and a chocolate Kahlua cake for dessert. Of course there were homemade cookies as well, as per our tradition (or at least it is our tradition on the years I can get around to it). And now I am sending Ben back to school with a big tupperware of individually wrapped cake slices and some decorated cookies as well.
Happy Birthday Ken and Ben! You guys are awesome!
