Happy Birthday, Jonathan!

This past Saturday, Jonathan turned six! We celebrated with an astronaut themed birthday party Saturday night. My parents, brother & the Coppock family joined us. Thank you for coming! (In the morning, Patricia put together a World War II themed treasure hunt. The boys were thrilled!)

We bought dress up for gifts (we ordered from JM Cremps- if you have boys, CHECK THEM OUT! Great quality with various kinds of adventures to choose from.):

Even the adults had to try on the helmet:

Benjamin used the boxes in a creative way (later he taped one on the bottom to make himself a robot):

I made a ball-shaped moon cake. Beyond the shape, it wasn't very impressive but the children seemed to enjoy it (Dawn, I wish you were here to make my cakes!):

Jonathan, we pray that you would continue to grow in your love for your Savior! We also pray that you would grow up to have dominion over God's universe for His glory!
- Heather

Happy Birthday, Jonathan!

I hope that's not the only reason you wish we were closer ;) You did a good job, I don't know that I could've done a ball cake!

Oh, no! The cakes are just a bonus! :)

Happy Birthday, Jonathan - hard to believe he's six! My boys would love that astronaut suit! We could use some more boyish dress-up clothing here, so thanks for the link.
