Happy Birthday Jaxon!

My sweet Jaxon turned four years old today, and boy did we party.  He's been looking forward to this day for at least a month, and I don't think it was a disappointment. 
We'll start with the cake....I feel just so-so about it, so I won't say much.  But Jaxon liked it.

The party was AWESOME!  We were the Decepticons, and had to defeat the Autobots and get to the Allspark before they did.  It included 4 separate missions, tackling Bumblebee (Rick), a treasure hunt, water balloons, covering Optimus Prime with ice, and so much more.  The kids loved it.  Jaxon especially.  And I'm pretty sure the adults had a good time to!  And yes, we were the bad guys.  Jaxon was insistent.

Jaxon was very focused on his new Transformer toys after the party.  I don't think I'll see him much for the next few days.  He got 6 new Transformers.  Score! 
Every year I take picture of Jaxon in the leaves on his birthday, so I had to do it again.  He's my sweet boy.039

And here's to new traditions!   I don't know who of you read the Nienie Dialogs, but she has inspired me in so many ways.  One of which is starting a new tradition of sending Jaxon's birthday wishes into the sky on balloons.  I love it.   051 052

I hope all your wishes come true!

Happy birthday Jaxon.....looks like it was a fun bithday party. I just know that if we lived closer, Garon and Jaxon would be the best of buds.

Luke is sooo into Transformers also this year. He is Bumblebee for Halloween. I can't believe they are always into the same stuff. They must be soul mates or something.

I loved being part of the Transformer party. So much fun! I'm sad I missed out on the balloon send off. What a tender moment and a great idea.

Happy Birthday Jaxon! We are meant to be friends...I love NieNie's blog! I just found it a couple months ago and want to emulate her in every way.
