HappY Birthday to Jonah!

Jonah had his 9th Birthday last week! I can't believe that I am the mother of a 9-year old.
Here are just a few of the many faces of dear Jonah.

He decided to have Hot Chocolate Brownies topped with Homemade Marshmallows for his birthday treat. You can find more info about that HERE.
On his birthday, we played after school instead of doing chores and went to eat dinner at The Cracker Barrel. Last year we tried something new for his b-day celebration. Instead of a b-day party, he invited 2 friends to go out to eat and then they went with Matt to do some fun activities, and then came to our house and stayed up late playing outside. This year, Jonah decided to invite a couple of friends to the Georgia Basketball game that Matt was able to get extra tickets too. It was a night game and the boys had a blast.
Only two of the boys were "brave" enough to go and have a picture taken with the cheerleaders.
Of course, they had to talk to Hairy Dog and get a picture with him.
Even the grown-ups couldn't resist the Hairy Dog picture taking experience.

During half-time, Hairy Dog brought Jonah a cookie cake that said Happy Birthday. He was a little bit excited about that.

After the game, the boys were able to meet the players and get their autographs.

Jonah and the other boys had a blast celebrating at the game. Plus, the Dawgs won, so that added a happy note to the whole experience.

We are so glad that Jonah is in our family. He is a great big brother. Very helpful, loving, smart and he teaches me things everyday. Love you, Jonah!
