Today...Jonathan turned 4!

Well, our little man is 4 years old already! Hard to believe how time flies. All week Jonathan’s been counting down the sleeps until his big day, and then today as the day went on, he kept asking to make sure it was still his birthday!

The vanderHeide girls came over this morning and became part of the cake-decorating team!

And here’s the finished airplane cake!

Even a big 4 year old needs Daddy’s help blowing out the candles!

His birthday present, imported all the way from Toys R Us, Canada!

And an afternoon swim with a crocodile to finish off our wonderful day.

We praise God for Jonathan and pray that he will grow in his knowledge of the Lord and love and serve Him with all his heart!

Happy 4th birthday, Jonathan! I love the airplane cake! It must have tasted as good as it looks :-)
And your new bike is pretty neat, too. Does Mommy make you wear a helmet, or don't they do that in PNG?! ;-) May the Lord continue to bless you and give you many, many more birthdays!
With love from the Noots
