Birthday Fun!

So since my absence in posting a horribly terrific thing happened, my baby turned four! Four, four, four... I remember being little and thinking 20 was old and 50 was dead! Now that I'm somewhere between old and dead I can't believe how old a number like four can seem. I can't believe that four years ago I was holding an infant in my arms completely amazed at how much you could love someone you had never seen before. And now four years later I still can't believe how much I can love someone who I've known for such a short time but I'm more amazed that he barely fits in my arms anymore! Four!

Now that I'm done crying I'll move onto the fun stuff!  Since Sawyer's birthday is a week before Christmas it's a challenge for me to figure out a party. I want it to feel like a birthday not Christmas, which is hard when there is a Christmas tree in your living room. Usually when we have a party I like the kids to play outside but when it's pouring outside again it's a little challenging to do that. So this year we had a small party at Funtastic. It's like a big McDonald's play area. I love it, because I can see the kids at all times, they are always tired when we leave, and usually I am able to chat with my friends while they play. The kids had a blast, the parents drank sangria, and at the end of the day I think it was a success.

So happy brother is around to have a birthday!
Look at that wet head!
FOUR candles is a lot!

With all this excitement we didn't open presents until the following morning. Which was actually his birthday, so we had donuts and open gifts it was a great way to start your birthday!
Pillow Pets, how the world survived without them before we will never know!
Jaxson loved the wrapping everyone used!
I love the excited faces!
Happy Birthday to my Fantastic four year old boy!! I love you Sawyer and it's beyond my wildest dreams getting to watch you grow up!
