FC: Defining Benson | Year 3: 2009-2010
1: How do you Define a 3-year-old? More precisely how do you define Benson Logan Taylor at age 3? This book is all about the many characteristics that represent Benson & many of our family's activities from 2009-2010. Because the best way to define our family's life is the person at the center of it...our special little boy.
2: B | is for Bossy
3: Benson is the oldest cousin, so naturally he likes to be the boss of the activities. Most 3-year olds are pretty opinionated & Benson is no exception as the boss in our family!
4: E | is for Exploring
5: The first big adventure out of town was to Las Vegas! We visited Uncle Stan & family for a fall wedding. Enjoyed our first plane ride, toured Ceasar's Palace, FAO Schwarz for toys, first Carousel ride, & enjoyed lots of time on the Benson Ranch with the horses & cousins. We had a great time & will definitely go back for more Vegas exploring!
6: N | is for Naughty & Nice
7: A little winter playtime in the snow & some naughty & niceness from our Benson!
8: S | is for Spoiled | Some pre-xmas cheer...lights & gingerbread!
9: A full Christmas season enjoyed with family and we can't help but spoil Benson too! | We love trains, trucks, & tracks!
10: O | is for Original
11: Some traditional costume shots with the cousins at Grandma Tiedes and creating some original pieces for our Halloween pumpkins...but not particularly liking the pumpkin guts!
12: N | is for Nerd
13: All kids are curious & my favorite nerdy Benson question this year is.... "WHY Momma?" The short answer to get used to is- "because I said so!"
14: L | is for Learning | This year was all about learning to use the potty & putting on our undies... some days were more successful than others!
15: O | is for Outgoing | Summer time fireworks with a few friends & family. You were outgoing enough to tryout the sparklers & pops with Daddy. We still have a few years till the big stuff!
17: is for Grandchild | Benson is a lucky grandchild to be loved and near all the wonderful grandparents in his life...Nana, Papa, GG & Poppers, Grandma Benson, and Grandma & Grandpa Tiede
19: A | is for Amusing | My favorite part this year is all the amusing & fun times with our boy...haircuts, dress-up, playtime, & basically just being a kid- Thanks for all the laughs!!
20: N | is for Nice-Looking
21: We might be biased, but we think he's a pretty good lookin' kid. Nice pictures by Shutterlove!
22: T | is for Three | Celebrating the Big '3' birthday with family & cousins at Nana's house. The perfect summer setting for a barbecue, ice cream cake, & to try out the new bike!
24: A | is for Active
25: Benson is an active little boy! He loved his new sandbox, pool, & attending all the various carnivals & events held throughout the summer!
26: Spring brings out the youthfulness in all of us, with Easter egg hunts, candy, and fun...it's good to be a kid!
27: Y | is for Youthful
28: L | is for Lovable
29: Our little boy is lovable & adorable. We are a lucky family indeed.
30: O | is for Over-Whelmed
31: We were all happily over-whelmed this year when we attended the Blue Angels airshow in IF. Benson loved checkin' out the jets helicopters, & shooting the big guns! It was a very hot, but very fun day for the whole family.
32: R | is for Rambunctious | Benson is a typical rambunctious kid...he loves playing at the cabin or anywhere.
33: We continue to love and adore all the things that define you! We look forward to the coming years as you grow and define yourself in all that you do too! We Love you!! Mom & Dad
