Jaxson Turns 5

We have one very excited little boy in our home because he turned 5 yesterday. We had his party on Saturday but his birthday was yesterday.

He was sooo funny at church yesterday as he ran in to tell everyone that he had turned 5. I love our church because our church is a living example of
Matthew 19:14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” The pastor of our church even lets a little one stand on stage to preach with him each week.

During the service we have a time that people can share announcements and prayer requests and Jaxson took the microphone and announced that it was his birthday. The whole church sang "Happy Birthday" to Jaxson then. Jaxson was on the front row because his class was doing a play and he kept looking back at us holding up his fingers to show us he was 5.

His birthday party was full of cousin fun. Addison who is only a few days younger than Jaxson was totally in love with the puppies and I think she had one in her arms the entire time other than when she was eating.

The cousins had their own special table to eat at. Do you see the puppies in the background? The puppies still need a home (we can even work out shipping for them).

These two were very, very excited that they are once again 'twins" for 5 months. They were so excited they laid in bed for 2 1/2 hours the night before singing "Happy Birthday".

I saved this picture until last because I just love this. This is the last picture taken of Jaxson at 4 years old. As I was tucking him into bed (a little teary eyed) I said "Jaxson what will momma do since I won't have any babies anymore?" Jaxson told me to go to South Carolina to visit my niece (she is 18 months old) and give her some lovins and then go to China and bring another baby home.
If it were only that easy sweet baby!
