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 . . .

What a fun birthday celebrating a fun boy!
