Bentley Boy turned seven!
The night before Bentley's seventh birthday he lost his seventh tooth. He was already excited and now he was even more so. After seeing what the tooth fairy brought him the next morning, we opened gifts from his siblings because they couldn't wait! Wyatt was so thrilled for Bentley to open the Minion lego set he picked out. They have played with it several times since and have had fun making different inventions. Sophia got Bentley some new Star Wars toothbrushes. Bentley loves Sophia and it was sweet to see her give it to him. Next Bentley got a star wars Pillow, that also serves as a book, from Bailey. She couldn't wait to give it too him and he was so surprised at the fun gift! After that I poured him his favorite bowl of cereal and then he was off to school. The kids and I had fun bringing him his favorite pizza, Pizza Hut, to school to join him for lunch on his special day. His class had done special things for him to make him feel celebrated for his birthday as well. His sweet teacher made him a birthday crown and gave him a pencil that smelt of oranges. That night we took Bentley for dinner and came back to the house for cake, ice cream, and more presents. My mom , dad, and Collin joined us for the fun! Bentley had requested a Football cake with Broncos colors since they were the winning super bowl team. That boy loves football and does well at playing it! We sang Happy birthday, ate some cake, and then it was on to the presents. The only thing Bentley really wanted was a Cardinals Larry Fitzgerald jersey. The look on his face was priceless when he opened that and totally worth the $. He got a new Hockey net and stick from Grandma and Grandpa. Also his Grandma and Grandpa Anderson had sent down a star wars and Minion shirt that he loves to wear. I love celebrating this oldest child of mine. He has made being a mother easy and is so thoughtful of me. He is starting to get more of an independence about him and even a streak of sassiness here and there but overall he is obedient, kind, hardworking, and helpful. He loves a good long hug and always pulls me in extra tight after bedtime prayers. Ive noticed that is the time he likes to open up and talk and I have had to recognize it and make sure to listen. He is doing well in school, sports, and is a great example of reverence at church and at home. He reminds us to read scriptures as a family, and he is always quick to say he is sorry if he has hurt anyones feelings. He is a sensitive soul and doesn't like to see other people sad or alone. He is a wonderful friend, big brother, cousin, and son. He is a great drawer and makes the best cards! Bentley we love you and hope you know how special you are to us!
