Jackson turns 4!!!

I know this post is way overdue! I've been trying to stay current and catch up little by little.

OUR LITTLE BOY IS FOUR!!! Oh my goodness, it's so hard to believe.

The last couple of weeks I've been reminded of what I love about 4 year olds. They just say the cutest things! He's still a handful, but he is hilarious!! He knows it too! I need to start writing more of it down. I'm gonna miss his cuteness!

Krispy Kreme birthday doughnuts! I love this tradition!

We had a small birthday party for Jackson with our neighbors and the Barbours on Sunday April 19th. It was so fun to be able to celebrate on his actual birthday!! The best part of all was that my sister Janet and her kids were able to make it down for the party! What a TREAT! Austin, Grant, and Emma were our special guests! We met at a nearby park, played, ate pizza, had cake and ice cream, played, open gifts, played kick ball in the open field, and went home. I do love park parties. Easy, GREAT for the kids, and very little clean up! Perfect! :)

Jackson wanted a Batman cake. This blue icing really did a number on your mouth! :) It was yummy!

Jackson is more of an icing kind of guy than a cake kind of guy. I actually think he had two pieces but only ate the icing off of both of them. Too cute!

It was so fun celebrating out little J! He is a sweetheart, full of life, so loving and we are so blessed to be able to call him our own!

We love you Jackson! Happy 4th Birthday!

Hard to believe he's already 4!!

Janet said...

Happy Birthday to Jackson. You KNOW Beth that I just could "eat him up". I absolutely love his passion for everything he does and I love his eyes and his sweet, sweet voice! You are blessed!

i only wish we could have been there to get blue mouths too!!

Jen said...

I can't believe our little ones are already 4! yeah Jackson!

Vonda said...

I would have given anything if we could have all been there...I just thought about the fact that Aunt Vonda has never been to one of Jackson's birthday parties since we left for Germany when he was only 7 months old. That just kills me! But hey we're back in The States now so who knows what 2010 will bring re celebrating birthdays with the cousins!

And Jackson has taken after his Aunt Vonda re icing on the cake. Who needs the cake when you have something as good as icing? :)
