31 for 21: Day 10

Jonathan's Birthday!!!!!!!

Yesterday morning Jonathan woke to find his party decorations up, the look on his face tells you how he felt:)

I think he loved the banner with him being the Ring Master.

Jonathan's birthday party looks to be a circus theme, which it was. But the main part of the circus for Jonathan is the................

ELEPHANT!!!! He loves elephants and has since he was a tiny boy, to this day they remain is favorite thing.

We closed the store yesterday, and after we ate breakfast yesterday morning we attended the Buddy Walk in Chattanooga. It was so neat that it happened to be on Jonathan's birthday, pictures to come! We had Jonathan's party around supper time.

On the birthday menu were a few of Jonathan's favorites

Hot dogs and Hamburgers
Baked Beans, Potato Salad,
Pickles, and Chips

The weather yesterday was perfect for being outside to grill.

Don't these faces look familiar?

Jonathan ready for his birthday meal, and he is all about food! Not sure if he likes food or gifts better....I think food!

His elephant birthday cake. (Many have ask who makes our birthday cakes, I make them. Elizabeth and Rebekah made Amanda's cake this year, they took a cake class. There is a long story behind my cake making, and I'll share it sometime in the near future.)

Yay, cake and ice cream time!!!! This was one of the best birthdays ever, we were able to spend the whole day together celebrating Jonathan!

We love you Johnny!!!!!!!

His party and theme were awesome!! The cake is incredible. I'd love to hear the story behind your decorating skills.

BTW, tomorrow is the big day when we have the ultrasound. Kids nor I can't wait to see whether it is a boy or a girl :) Emma is very excited and wants to go. (Some are staying to play with a friend or take naps...a friend is coming over to watch them.) She (Emma) is adament that it is a girl and the is the only answer she wants to hear. I know she will love either one but I'm not sure how she is going to react if it's not a girl. She is the only child who has been this way about the babie before. She said, "We have a lot of boys. We need more girls!" (She's my little momma at age 4)
