To Catch Up. . .

August is a very busy month for us with about 50 birthdays. . . OK, maybe not that many, but we do have a lot.  Last week we kicked off birthday month with Jack’s 3rd birthday party.  Jack turned the big 0-3 on the 11th.  Mike and Brandy had a big backyard beach bash to celebrate, complete with a pool, bounce house, and beach cupcakes.  We had a great time and it was funny to watch Jack and Jaxson play amongst all of the other kids.  I thought for sure that with all of their other friends there, they would surely separate for a little bit and play with the other kids, but they didn’t.  They liked having all of their friends there, but when it came down to it, they played their own little games and they both made sure that they knew where the other was at all times.

Mike and Brandy – I didn’t realize that I captured some evidence on my camera.

Fun in the bounce house.

Make a wish!

Yummy cupcakes!

Last week, Grandma Pam and Aunt Patty came down to babysit Jaxson so that Brad and I could go to the fair with our friends, the McArtors.  We didn’t do all of the usual stuff at the fair.  We just ate right away when we got there and then went into the concert and then got a root beer float afterwards and headed home.  Which was just fine with me since it was in the 90’s that day.  We went to the Jeremy Camp/Steven Curtis Chapman concert.  They are Christian Rock and they were awesome.  We sing a lot of their songs in church and they are all over Christian radio.  We had a fabulous time.  I heard that Jaxson had a great time with his babysitters too.  It was nice that Aunt Patty could some spend some time with us since she will be heading back to Oregon on Wednesday.

Then on Friday, we got to watch Brady in the morning.  He was such a good boy and Jaxson liked entertaining him.

For some reason Jaxson was a very good boy last week.  Maybe the threat of “if you’re not a good boy, you’re not getting any birthday presents” is working.  Anyways, here’s a pic of him being a very good boy and reading his books quietly while I made lunch.

Happy Birthday to Devon, who turned 16 last week, and to Brandon, who turned 25 yesterday!  Now we’re gearing up for a big party week for Jaxson’s birthday on Wednesday.
