Jaxon’s birthday!!

8 years ago….EIGHT!  That’s nearly a decade I’ve spent with this little man of mine.  We kept the party simple this year, so we could focus more on the importance of his baptism.  Although, simple for me it a relative term. 

Can you sense the excitement?

He got a Swiss army knife.  I guess Jake has a thing now where Jaxon gets a weapon every year….WHAT??  I never okayed that deal.  Last year it was a bow and arrow, this year a knife…I shudder to think of what might be coming.

After presents we got to go bowling and have pizza, which is always fun.  I was happy to have family join us.  They made it a party for sure!  Especially the part when John beat everyone in the dancing game….and was proud of it?!

Then we got to go dig into Jaxon’s cake.  He’s so cute to want to design it himself, that I allowed my 8 year old a 3 layer cake.  Who does that?  He’s so specific too.  I guess that’s what comes from being the son of a cake decorator.

This kid has been a joy to raise from day one.  He’s smart, so very kind, a wonderful big brother, and always trying to do what’s right.  Sure he’s the messiest kid I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing about him.

Sure love this kid!!
