Though we are naturally decaffeinated, we've got plenty of spunk (some good, some bad!).

Pictures of a Boy's Birthday
Well good morning you 11-year old!
Lucy giving Jonas a birthday-hug because she is so like that.
Ivan and his mom Patty came over to drop off a present for Jonas. Then we all walked to school It was a spirit day - Holiday Hat Day. :)
Jonas' civil-war cake I managed to make in between visiting teacher and a whole bunch of other stuff!
Cool soldiers. Awesome "trees" from our grape vine.
Jonas had a good day at school and came home and opened one gift: the best of Queen in 2 CDs. Haha, fun. He also opened up Ivan's present, which was a lego set. So he worked on that while I took Lucy to her music class.
We came home and the kids watched a movie while I got Jonas' birthday dinner ready: homemade spaghetti and meatballs. YUM. After dinner, Jonas got to open the rest of his gifts.
Jonas reading what his book from Aune-e and Co. is all about.
Jonas checking out his "big" gift - an "expert" level lego set. A detective's office. (Jonas finished it up today and it is awesome. I'll have to take some fun pics of it later.). Jonas is also sporting his second-hand store coat - which he'll probably grow out of in a month! Also, he is wearing his cool New York hat - we had tried to find one while in New York over the summer, but never did. Thanks to Amazon, we found a really cool one and he was super excited.
Sweetest picture of the day: Lucy totally excited as Jonas opened the gift she had given him (some random toys).
Jonas lighting his birthday cake (which he absolutely LOVED - he also LOVES that he can play with the toy soldiers. Cake AND present in one!).
Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you . . .
