Party Time!

        We woke Dax up the morning of his party
 Here we have a very confused sleepy birthday boy
Of course all he wanted after he got out of his crib was to start off with the books.
His birthday breakfast waffle and apparently a yummy candle

I enjoyed planning and making decorations for the party

A new tradition in our family. "The Birthday Banner" (big thanks to Mary for all your help with it)
The "Monster" fruit bowl! Idea by my dad made by my mom. It turned out so cute.

Lots of food! Sloppy joes, hot dogs, chips, fruit, veggies, and homemade root beer.

..and of course CUPCAKES!

The cake, pre-demolished

Dax was so lucky to receive so many fun gifts.

Lots of candy!

Googly eyed monster cups

I had a lot of fun making these picture frames.

 The thank yous were these monsters holding suckers for all the wonderful family and friends that helped us celebrate.

The craft table had monster masks to make and boy did the kiddos all get creative. Here is Dax's cousin Gracie Jo.

Jacksen sporting his mask.

Some of Dax's cousins- Jacksen, Dylan and Gracie making their masks.

Here is Dax playing patty-cake in his monster outfit. "Throw it oven for Daxton and Me!" 
Swinging away with cousins and friends.
One of his presents was this off road Razor (McKay wants a real 4 seater one someday so this will due for now) from Nana and Papa.

Dax's Aunt Maren, Uncle Brandon and cousins Fisher and Sage came all the way from Las Vegas for the bash.

Chowing down with my cousins Sadey and Nick. (He was born the day of their wedding) Thanks for sharing your special day guys :)

Sadey helped Dax scarf down the sloppy joe meat.

Just a dad giving his son some great advice :)
Go Go, McKay and Aunt Kathryn

Caught in the act! Dylan loves Jelly Bellys.

This monster pinata had a lot of little kids out to get him! Spoiler alert, he got destroyed :)

Dax saying his goodbyes

Dylan was one of the youngest but honestly had the fastest swing.

McKay in charge of the pinata 


Maggie Jane took a good chunk out of it.

....and cousin River ended it all!

Dax is so sweet trying to help the poor injured monster.

It's hopeless buddy, hes gone :)

Present time! He got lots of books, fun toys, cute clothes, shoes and a red wagon from Go Go.

Funny but true this singing card was probably his favorite because of the combination of being able to open like a book and it played music to dance to.

Open and and close.

One of the best parts of the day was a singing group of 18 men came over sang Happy Birthday to Dax. It was so AWESOME.

 Enjoying the great harmony

Cake Time!

Lemon cake. His favorite.

Dads favorite too. If it were up to me it would of been chocolate.

He is a wonderful sharer with Papa.

Getting all cleaned up in the cold cold water. He was not happy about that at all.
This was all for you buddy! Lots of people love ya especially Mom and Dad
