|The boys on their birthday. Benjamin is rolling his eyes at me because I requested he look at me and smile.|
We celebrated with a birthday weekend. On Saturday, March 25, my sister and I took the kids to the mall and she treated them to Build-a-Bear. This was the boys' birthday dream come true, and she let them each pick an animal- Asher picked a rainbow monster, Benjamin a snow leopard, and Charlotte an Elsa (from Frozen) bear. They enjoyed the ritual and named their animals- the monster got named Cute (later changed to Cutie), the snow leopard Snowy, and the bear Elsa. Of my children's many talents, creative naming of animals and pets is not among them.

Sunday was their birthday. I made a pan of homemade cinnamon rolls, and then the boys went to Hebrew school- it was pajama dance party day at Hebrew school, and there wasn't a word of protest.

I will post soon about the boys individually. I am impressed by them everyday- their intellectual and physical capabilities seem to be growing rapidly, and it is a joy to watch.
