Honey Bunches Bio
Written by Sweet Potato

Honey Bunches is my younger brother by exactly 17 months.  He is a good brother.  Sometimes he gets into trouble, but he still helps my sisters and me with chores.  He enjoys playing video games, card games and basketball. He likes reading books like the Hunger Games and The Lord of the Rings.  He loves playing his guitar and saxophone.  He enjoys playing football with me and our neighbor.  Honey Bunches is an awesome brother!

Heading out for our date.

Honey Bunches cashed in one of his Mother/Son Date coupons on his birthday.  He wanted to go out to eat at his favorite restaurant - Buffalo Wild Wings, and go to a movie of his choice - Sponge Bob Sponge Out of Water.

The restaurant was very busy, so we were seated in the bar area.  Midway through our dinner, the bartender came over with a microphone and announced that it was Honey's birthday.  Everyone sang Happy Birthday to him, including a rowdy table of 40 somethings sitting next to us who whooped and hollered.  Honey was slightly embarrassed.

The following day, we had ice cream cake with our family and Honey opened his gifts.

Gifts included a Rubik's Cube, the game Master Mind, a swim shirt, a Mind Craft shirt, cereal, cash and a stuffed animal (given by Pumpkin)

He also received this cookie bouquet from his Nina & Nino.

Due to travel schedules and basketball schedules, we decided to wait until the end of the month to celebrate with family and then also include his cousin Peanut Butter, whose birthday is 2 days before Honey's.  We went snow tubing at a semi-local ski hill.  

It.  Was.  Awesome.  

The adults had just as much fun as the kids.  

Unfortunately, we have no pictures of anyone tubing.  Both Monkey and I left our phones/cameras in the warming house.  Here is a picture of a few of the boys, enjoying hot chocolate while they warm up their cheeks and toes.

Afterwards, we had pizza and cake.

As Sweet Potato stated above, Honey is a great brother.  He does get annoyed by his sisters, but he still reads to them and helps them clean their room when asked.  He loves being outside (more so when the weather is nice) and riding his bike and playing football.  He could spend an entire day playing video games if we allowed it.  He is pretty social at school, but he does enjoy alone time with his guitar and Lego's when at home.   There are times when Honey challenges every ounce of patience in me, but at the end of the day, he will still give me a hug and say "I love you."  

Happy 11th Birthday Honey Bunches!  Always know how much I admire your gifts and talents.  They help to make you who you are and whom God created you to be.  Share them generously with others.  I love you forever!
