Jonah's 6th Birthday
We chose to celebrate Saturday since daddy had to teach on his actual birthday.
I asked this sweet little guy what he would like for his birthday a long time ago, so I would have plenty of time to do whatever I needed to do
He says, I would like a gift card to Africa to get my brother and sister, get out of there fast and fly home.
that would be a pretty big gift card, I said
Then he said, how about sponsoring a child for $34 a month for a year and then we can write to each other and send pictures.
I love the idea but we cannot afford that when we are trying to save for an adoption, I said, maybe when we are finished with this we can find a way to do it.
Love his heart
so so giving
We started the morning out with eggs and sausage and juice(his choice all day-we serve him and he is free from all chores and helping).
Then he chose hot dogs and soda/juice for lunch
My kiddos love to do cheers
Then we headed off to Appleton
 and went to an indoor play gym

Look at the sweat!

Then Jonah chose to go out to eat instead of a gift.  My children love to go out to eat, but we don't.  They can pick that for their birthday gift or ask for gift cards towards a restaurant if they wish.  They think it's so neat.  I always have coupons too so that helps. 
He was so excited that they sang to him and gave him a free hot fudge sundae.
Then we went home and had cake and opened gifts from family.
He is excited for the cake!

Thank you everyone for all the wonderful gifts. 
He loved them all and was so excited!
Thanks for all the wonderful cards too. 
Odin loves to read them to him.
We are so greatful for such a wonderful guy God has blessed us with!
