My sweet Jonathon is ten years old today.  He's beyond thrilled...keeps showing 1-0 with his fingers followed by, "I'm double digits now!"  We're having five of his friends spend the night tonight:  pizza, ice cream sandwich cake, Wii games and a movie...simple and fun and exactly what he wanted. This is first official birthday sleepover party and it is very exciting!

In honor of Jonathon's birthday, here are few of my favorite things about Jonathon:
  • His big brown eyes.
  • That he is my cuddle bug...even at ten he wants to sit close and cuddle on the couch.
  • He still asks to be tucked in at night (I'm hoping this never stops).
  • How much he loves karate and is proud to practice and show off his karate form.
  • He is sensitive to others.
  • That even though they fight :), he admires his big brother Ryan, so much. 
  • How he talks about my dad often.  My dad passed away six years ago and he loves to talk about how he shares so many of the same qualities as him.
  • He is my helper...always trying to do the right thing.
Here's his birthday card for today!  Happy Birthday Jonathon - I love you so very much!
Ingredients:  PTI Birthday Sentiments and Twine; SU Real Red and Not Quite Navy Paper/Ink; Tim Holtz Scallop Die; Basic Grey Oliver Paper

aw, Lynn, you have me in tears again talking about your son :)What a beautiful list of qualities that I'm sure could go on and on. It sounds like you and your husband are doing a fine job raising these young men to be fabulous men...good for both of you...not an easy task. I make ice cream sandwich cakes too!!!! LOL Aren't they the best? Easy to put together and always a hit!! But I think the tucking into bed will stop at least by the time he's 25! LOL Enjoy all those extra boys today!!! Yikes, you are brave!! hugs :)
