We "lucked" out and were able to have Ben home on Friday morning for Jonas' birthday (he had already put in 43 hours by Thursday night). I don't have a "classic" picture of birthday kid walking through his/her crepe paper door because Lucy or Emmy or someone ripped it down "accidentally" before I had the chance. And by the time it was put back up, I had forgotten to get the picture. Oh well.
We then opened presents. He got a lot of fun and great things and spent a lot of time with a bunch of his toys. He really liked the big Star Wars lego set he got and spent most of his time working on that. We had dinner and then started watching Spy Kids. Half-way through we had an intermission and had cake. Too bad Jonas didn't feel like eating it then - perhaps it was the huge chunk of "sugar bread" (as Jonas called it and was given to him by an "older" friend) and spaghetti and meatballs he ate for dinner. . . (He did eat his piece of cake before bed.).
After cake we finished the movie and then the boys played for a bit and then slept downstairs in the playroom in their sleeping bags. A fun night and a fun way to end a special day for a special boy.
