Jaxon's Birthday!

I still can't believe my baby boy is 4 years old. It seems crazy that we have a 4 year old, 5 year old and 6 year old in our house right now!

I love this birthday picture of Jaxon from Sunday morning. As crazy as he can be, he also has a very sweet side to him. :)

My sisters and their families left before church on Sunday morning. Justin had to be at church early, and I had to teach children's church, so after they all left, we headed to church. Then we came home to have lunch, open gifts, watch football and rest for a bit.

Jax loved his gifts from us!


 Trying out his new golf glove!

New backpack!

After resting, we headed outside. Justin added to our "Superhero Weekend' with some artwork! I was quite impressed!

(and then the rain washed it away a day later)

Jax picked Buffalo Wild Wings for supper! Jade, Megan, Zach and Brody joined us too! 

And we wonder why the kids don't always behave at restaurants ... :)

Birthday dessert + 5 spoons = very excited kids! Ha!!

Jax loved his balloon and candy from the VH's. :)

Our night ended with this sunset on our way home! Beautiful!

Happy 4th Birthday, Jaxon Dean! We love you so much!

Birthday Party!!

Party time!!

We celebrated Jaxon turning 4 and Calvin turning 3 since their birthdays are just a week apart!

The weather was perfect for being outside!

Jaxon decided a month ago that he not only wanted a superhero party, but that boys had to wear superhero shirts in order to be there. Well ... by Friday evening, that turned into Justin running out to get the girls each a shirt, and by Saturday afternoon that turned into me running to quickly buy a shirt too!

It turned out so cute though!!!

Jax was pretty excited about his gifts!

I spent Friday evening making these two cakes! I always love how they turn out (but during the baking/decorating process I usually hate myself for not calling DQ and ordering an ice cream cake)!

We had such a fun party ... my whole family was there, along with Justin's parents and grandparents and my aunt and cousin. Thanks to each of you for celebrating with us!

Birthday Weekend!

We were so excited for the weekend to arrive! Jaxon turned 4! My sisters, Eric, Josh and Calvin got to our house late Friday night to stay for the weekend! Even though we were all tired by the time they arrived, we (the adults) stayed up until about 1:00 talking. :)

My kids couldn't wait to see Calvin in the morning. In fact, Jax and Jordyn were both up at 5 AM waiting to see him. They both fell back asleep for a little while (like all of 10 minutes). Thank goodness they will watch their ipads and let Justin and myself continue to rest!

Finally ... after all the waiting, Calvin was up! :) Jax and Calvin watched a movie together.

Our day was so busy! We left to take family picture at about 9:00. We have had the worst weather every for pictures. However, we finally had perfect weather this time! I can't wait to see the pictures. I told Kandi I would give her until Tuesday to have them edited and ready for us. :)

The kids rested for a little while in the afternoon, but most of our time was spent playing with toys, playing outside, and cheering on Justin and Eric in their dance to Let It Go with the xbox.

These two dressed themselves in Jaxon's football gear ... and served us some food.

The girls made up cheer routines ...

The boys played football ...

They love their uncles!

They helped water my flowers ...

And they "fixed" the playhouse!

This kiddo was pretty excited about his birthday and his super hero party!

My mom, Devin, Logan and Ryleigh came up early on Saturday. The six kids played so well together.

Eric talked my mom into playing bags ...

Ryleigh was so cute trimming the yard!

We had 24 people at the birthday party ... more pictures to come soon!!
