~blowing out the candles.. you can see the new ball pit in the background
On Sunday night we had grammie and grandpa, Auntie Liz, and great-grandpa and grandpa Maat over to celebrate. We enjoyed some pizza and Dairy Queen ice cream cake, and filled our house with yet more toys.
Since it is kind of hard for great-grandpa and grandma DeKock to get out these days we took the party to them on Tuesday night. Jonah had fun eating more pizza (with olives, his favorite :) and cake, riding the elevator and seeing grandpa's train.

and say "baby's pipey! Abe's pipey!" So we decided that when we saw cousin Abe on Sunday Jonah would give him his pipeys. (not really, don't worry :) We put all of the pipey's in a special bag, and Jonah handed them right over without a problem! When we got home and got ready for bed he had a bit of a panic attack, realizing that his pipeys were actually gone. I expected to have a rough night (well, week actually), but he cried for about a half hour that first night, about 3 minutes before his nap the next day, and then it was done! Not a problem going to bed, and not waking up at night screaming for his pipey! He still asks for "blankie? pipey?" before bed, but then quickly remembers. "Abe's pipey all gone"

Today we spent a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Crane's Apple Orchard. Jonah was so excited to go, the whole way there he kept saying "Apples? Apples?" Jonah loved trying to pick the apples off the tree, but he quickly figured out they were kind of hard to get off, so he wanted to take the apples off the ground instead. He liked the "geen apples" so he'd take us on a detour everytime he saw a green one on the ground, he thought he should get them all!
After picking apples we had to stop by the pie pantry for some donuts and apple cider-YUM!! Jonah has been asking for "more nonuts?" ever since :)

Meanwhile, back at home, Chris and Jonah enjoyed "Man Weekend" by running through the doggy sprinkler, playing with the neighbors, and watching some VeggieTales!

While I'm talking about feet... this morning as I was getting Jonah dressed we were checking out his new socks from grammie. Todays socks had whales on them, so I asked him what was on his socks. His answer? "SHOES!!"

"Eli, are you gonna swing so high you touch the clouds?"
"No, cause when my mom and dad get home they'll say 'Where's Eli?' And you'll say 'Eli got stuck in the sky' They'd be mad."
