Josiah's Birthday- #5

Josiah has turned 5! It's amazing how quickly they grow up. The day of the Celebration for Celia was on Josiah's birthday, so I didn't want to focus all my attention on that party and forget about something for him. So, we planned a party at grandma Linda's for after the Celebration. Whoooo, that was a full day! He wanted our good friends, Phil and Casie to join us at his party, and they were nice enough to stretch out their day too and be there for him. Jonathon's brother, Jeff and his family, along with their new exchange student, Jessica joined us also. It was nice to celebrate with everyone Josiah's life. We are blessed to have him for sure!
There was a lot of mingling with Jessica, learning about Switzerland where she is from.

And the children decorated rice krispie faces on a stick for dessert.

I think the birthday boy's turned out the coolest, but then he did have a little help.

Their masterpieces all finished! So cute!
Zeky, Alegra, Josiah, Diella, and Eliyahna. Amalyah and Grandma Linda in the back.

He is so shy and wasn't sure how to act with opening his presents and being the center of attention.

He got some fun gifts and some fun cards too!

He has been nostop playing with his new legos, and hot wheels, and working in his new workbooks. Last night we put the glow in the dark stars on the ceiling and walls and he shared with his siblings which was great! Even Benaiah got to put some in his bed. : )

Was a fun evening, a long day, and my bed was a welcome place to rest my head that night.
