Happy, Happy Birthday, Jonah Dear!

Jonah Nonah turned eight this week.  There are a lot of things I appreciate about Jonah.  He is funny.  He spontaneously helps people without being asked.  He is creative.  He is clever.  He thinks kitties and babies are adorable.  He likes to snuggle.  He wants to make good choices.  He has strong self discipline.  He asked for a store bought cake this year. 

Last year, I spent hours and hours making a six layer Optimus Prime pound cake with marshmallow fondant.  It was a frustrating process, but in the end, we had a delicious cake that looked a bit like a transformer...until we ate it two minutes after the big reveal.

This year, I took his hand as we walked through sliding glass doors directly to the bakery department.  He pointed out a cake and asked the baker to write 'Happy Birthday Jonah' on top in blue frosting.  We walked to the frozen foods section for ice cream, stopping for Kinder Surprises on the way.  We were in and out of that store in under fifteen minutes.

Last year's cake was magic.  This year's cake was what he wanted.
