Ben's 12th Birthday!

Another May birthday was had in our household this weekend! Ben turned 12 today.....his last year before the teenage years. Being the only boy and the middle child, his is the stabilizer between his two sisters.....which I am totally thankful for! He asked me to make him his favourite meatball subs and I made this cake for his birthday cake.

When my mom was visiting,a few weeks ago, I took her to my local yarn store, and she stocked up on a bit of sock wool. I remember her taking me to yarn stores when I was little and,and naturally I grew impatient about being there too long,but I loved all the colours, the feel of all the different kinds of wool, and the smell of it all. Now we can both enjoy the wool shop experience together, with the same level of excitement!
Have a wonderful week.


  1. I love the balloons on their birthday. Such a good idea!

  3. Happy Birthday to your boy!! 12 is a wonderful age. And love all that yarn! Maybe you'll end up with a pair from your mom's hands, that would be a treasure for sure!

  4. How wonderful to be able to share the love of knitting with your mom! I love lingering in yarn shops.
