And He's Ten!

Xavier has now entered double-digits since his birth. I am not quite sure how these past ten years have flown by but they have. His heart is big and his energy high and I am *so* thankful for my boy! Here are some photos so we can have this day recorded for our memories!

A small family celebration at the pavilion...

My ten year old...

Cupcakes with my homemade buttercream frosting...

Jaxson's look here, cracks me up!

Madelyn got him back after THIS incident!

She was quite pleased with herself afterwards! ;)

Enjoying some gifts!

The sky was gorgeous that night!

My dad couldn't make it to the first birthday celebration, so we had another one on X's actual birthday so my dad could come too! We had sweet corn (from our garden) and hotdogs for supper. 

Pop-Pop and Grammie got Xavier an air-soft gun for his birthday...

He was *thrilled* and had fun shooting at a target later that evening (I even took a shot and hit the target!)...

Grammie got X an ice cream cake...and we skyped with my sister and Eloise so they could sing with us and watch him blow out the candles! Ma and Pa (Chris's parents) even came over to join us for some ice cream cake!

(For the record, ice cream cake is my *favorite*...but I didn't eat any!)
Xavier enjoyed all his special celebrations. We are all just so thankful for this sweet boy that God blessed us with 10 years ago! He's practicing his banjo as I type and it is making me smile. Wish you could be here to hear it too. ;) 
Thank you, if you made it this far, for sharing in our birthday fun! I know there are a lot of pictures here...but my blog books are like photographic journals for us that I have printed out (although I am a few years behind now...it costs a pretty penny to have these things printed!). 


  1. Congratulations to your handsome young birthday boy. My granddaughter has a birthday tomorrow, too- xo Diana

  2. To be ten again! Would you want to live this life over again?
    No not I for I have learned to be thankful in all He has been teaching me for His Kingdom purposes.
    Happy Birthday to your precious boy!
    Blessings, Roxy

  3. How special! My youngest is now 8, my last boy. I'm savoring all his boy-ness. I love X's look as he opens the air soft gun.

    Happiest of birthdays to your son!
