Even the handy man is smitten!

We have had a handy man at the house doing some work this week. Mr. Huey came highly recommended to us and we have been SO pleased!!! Jonah has really put on the charm around Mr. Huey. He gave him hugs every morning and blew him kisses when he left. It was so sweet to see. Mr. Huey is a grandpa so he loves little boys.
When we left Wednesday morning, Mr. Huey was outside working. Jonah was immediately drawn to his saw. I told him he could look at it if he would keep his hands by his side. Check out the picture above this text. He did exactly what I told him to do. Gotta love obedience!
Mr. Huey showed Jonah his tool belt and pointed out all the different tools to him. All the way to school, Jonah asked what happened to daddy's tool belt. Ha! I guess he wonders why he has never seen Dan wearing a tool belt. We'll have to work on that.

No text...just a few cute pictures!

Chillin' in the pool!

Dan had meetings Tuesday night and did not plan to come home until around 10 p.m. We needed something to do to release some energy, so we headed to the Verdel's pool. Jonah loves Art (OTT) so he headed straight to the door to see if he was there.
Art didn't answer the door so we headed to the backyard. Jonah kept looking for Art and wondered why he didn't come outside.

After a while, Diane and Marlie showed up to swim with us. Those kids were so happy to see each other.

Jonah has a pair of sunglasses but he refuses to wear them. Apparently, he has no problem with wearing Marlie's pink sunglasses. He did not want to give them back to her.

Jonah's Birthday Party

I wish you could all see this invitation in person. It came out so cute. I only ordered 20 this year. Yes, I know...a far cry from the 80 we sent last year!!! But, because of the nature of his party, we only invited kids age 3 and under. We are turning the room into a big play area and are catering everything to very small kids. So, we invited his cousins and few friends from church and school. (and his grandparents, of course!) I think it is going to be so much fun for them.

BUT, just because you did not get an invitation, doesn't mean that you can't come. We had to limit the number of kids we invited but any of you adults that love our little boy are welcome to come for cake and ice cream. I ordered the cake on Monday and TRUST ME...there will be more than enough cake to feed anyone who might stop by!!!

We marked through some of the information on the invitation to limit access to someone who might not know us. But, if you know us, you probably can tell where the location is and you also know how to call us for more information. Oh, and don't bring a gift! The kid will have plenty!

SMACK 2008

Tonight was the 2008 performance of SMACK. Dan started SMACK (Summer Music and Activity Camp for Kids) in 2003 here at FBC. It is an activity filled week of fun, games and music for kids in grades 1-5. Over the course of the week, the kids learn an entire musical and then perform it on Sunday night.

Since it was going to be all music, I decided to attempt Jonah being in the sanctuary rather than the nursery. I figured it couldn't be too bad since there would be tons of kids in there. I was so proud of him. He sat there like such a big boy for the first 15-20 minutes. Doesn't he look so grown up?

Once the program started, Jonah caught a glimpse of his daddy and got so excited. He was even more excited when Dan sat down with us. I don't think he has ever sat next to Dan in church before. He spent the next little while in Dan's lap.

Towards the end of the presentation, he discovered Tara's camera. She gave it to me to take pictures. Jonah got in between me and Amanda and started looking through the lens of the camera. Then we heard him count...just like I do when taking pictures. Man, they pick up SO much!

He looked at Josh and told him to "Mile, Josh!" This picture cracked me up. The kid adores Josh Wilson and from the look on Josh's face, I think the feeling is pretty mutual! Who else would Josh Wilson ham it up for besides my little guy???

He then turned the camera towards Clare and told Clare to "mile" too! As you can see, both Clare and Sylvia obliged him. I may end up with a photographer on my hands. He certainly comes by it natural. He has had more photos taken than most any child I know. (an average of 500 per month get archived to CD!) Here is my sweet little family! Even though Jonah isn't smiling, this picture makes my heart so happy. I feel so blessed to be called wife and mom by these two precious people.
Joshua and Casey joined us for a picture. I love the brown shirts Joshua chose this year. They really complimented the theme.
When we first came to this church six years ago, Taylor Welch was in elementary school. She was our next door neighbor for three years and has always been involved in SMACK. We have an annual SMACK picture done with her every year. She is now going into the tenth grade! Man, we are getting old!
Here is Jonah and his Zoo-zoo. I'm not sure which of these two love each other more? It would be a close contest to judge!
In case you haven't noticed this before on the blog, I LOVE pictures of Jonah and Dan walking together holding hands. You can see a post with one of those pictures probably at least once a week. Sorry to inundate you with them but I can't help myself. LOVE THEM!

A certain church member stole my camera and made me think he was taking my picture with Mrs. Rosemary with HIS camera. In reality, he took my camera from my bag to take this. It's okay because I love this sweet lady! (and the thief who took my camera! No wonder he has been demoted to the back door greeter!)
Jonah was so tempted by the snack table at the fellowship after church. He looked very closely but never touched any food until he asked. I am loving these manners he acquired!!!

I'm not sure what Jonah and Tammy were laughing at but they are both pretty tickled. I'm sure he just swindled her out of something because that kid has her number!!
Mrs. Bettye came over to get some kisses from Jonah. He was actually pretty free with his hugs and kisses tonight. I try to take advantage of that any chance I get!
