Jonah's Birthday Party

Today is Jonah's birthday, but we celebrated on Saturday. Can you guess how old he is? I would have made just chocolate cupcakes but Jonah doesn't like chocolate. Is there such a thing as maternity testing to be sure he wasn't switched at birth? Oh, did I write that out loud?

I was inspired to make art on this foil-covered window screen when I found myself with forty-eight cupcakes and no other platter large enough to hold them. Nobody knows it was an old screen from the basement. Well, they do now, but foil seals bad stuff in as much as it does good stuff. No worries.

Jonah was pretty happy when his friends started showing up. Maybe it's because they were sooo cute.
Here's the whole birthday crew, minus a couple camera-shy munchkins:
Jonah was very excited to open his presents.
Despite appearances, it wasn't a theme party. A few of the kids just wanted to be ready to protect us in the event of criminal activity during the festivities. Thankfully, there was none.

Then came the piƱata. All the kids gave it a whack. Andy tried to bust it open. Then Spiderman gave it his best shot:
And when it seemed no one was going to crack the soccer ball, Dad stepped in. Let the sugar comas commence! Ah, look at all the baby-unfriendly candy.

Good times.
