My "baby" boy Jackson is not a baby anymore and if I make the mistake of calling him that, he's quick to correct me via "I'm NOT a baby, I'm a big boy"....Jackson is 4 yrs old today, now remember it's already Aug. 28 here in Germany so it's official here, for you in the states not quite yet! But since I'm about to head my tired tush to bed I wanted to make this post now, since tomorrow's going to be busy. In the morning I have a PWOC board meeting, then I need to go pick up some essentials we forgot to get on Sunday (paper plates, cups, silverware..all throw away stuff), I want to get some balloons filled with helium and then fill up our yard tent that Chad set up tonight, get a Happy Birthday banner since I can't find mine, I have to exchange the comforter too. Chad picked up a full size vs a twin size. Jack's big gift from us is new bedding...Cars! He's getting the comforter, sheets, a squishy pillow that Chad and I love ourselves lol, and a trash can. Jacob picked out a Cars race track thing that Jack said he wanted, we got him 3 cars to go with that, and Emma got him a transformer thing! ;) My parents sent him a check, Chad's grandma did as well, and so did my maternal grandparents. Chad's mom's check hasn't gotten here yet.
We're having a small party for him tomorrow. We let him pick 4 friends to invite...he's still small enough that the families and siblings are invited as well. Public (DODDS) school started yesterday/Monday so his birthday is on a school night. We decided to BBQ (burgers and hotdogs), going to make a taco dip/7 layer dip, our friend Bobbie is making her wonderful Taco Salad, and we'll have koolaid and lemonade to drink.
Chad's the artistic one in our family so he made the birthday cake (I can make cakes..but Chad drew on it). Jack wanted Batman on it and Batman is what he got! Chad free-handed a Batman head and a part of his chest on that cake and let me tell you, it looks so awesome! I'll share pictures after the party! Oh the party is at 6 pm too! Jack will get to open one gift from us...clothes! LOL Cute little Cars outfit, although it's going to be in the mid-70's tomorrow so probably too warm for the outfit (it's a long sleeved one, but knowing Jack he'll probably still want to wear it). Oh back on topic with the cake..we got the wonderful ice cream cups...making life simple! :) :)
So...anyways to my baby boy....I love you to the moon and back and back again...Happy Birthday Jackson Thomas.
