My Little Monkey's Special Day!

If you happened to read my post yesterday you would probably remember that yesterday was Jaxson's 4th birthday! :) Above is the monkey cake I made for him. Not the best cake I have ever made...but Jaxson liked it and that is what is important! :)

Birthday hugs for Jaxson from his sister and brother! :)

We had his birthday party at my inlaws' meat market. It is deer season and many of the men of our family are busy processing deer at the meat market. It is a busy, busy time of the year! So that the guys could still be part of the party...we had it down at the meat market and Jaxson was quite happy with that! :)

My mom made broccoli cheese soup and brought rolls for us all to eat for supper. My father in law also made some venison for everyone to enjoy. So everyone ate and visited....and then it was time for *cake*! :)
We sang (which my sister, unbeknownst to me, was videoing....and I was right beside her! Ack! I can not carry a embarrassing!)...and then Jaxson blew out his candles! :)

Then it was Jaxson's favorite! :)

Notice his true excitement at the Mr. Potato Head Tshirt that his Aunt and Uncle got him.....

hehehehehehe.....isn't his face just toooo funny in that photo above??? It cracks me up!!!

He got lots of other fun things as well....but one thing was this suet feeder that my parents got him...isn't that a great idea? Then we can hang it outside and watch the birds! :)

I think my baby had a wonderful 4th was such a nice time and we are just so so thankful for his life.

My baby went from this......*I am trying not to cry*......

To 4 very short years! I have enjoyed his life and look forward to watching him grow and change more over the years all while trying to love each moment as it happens...good & bad! :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and visit with me! I hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead!!! :)
