Dax's "Favorites" birthday celebration!

For Dax’s party this year we chose to have his favorite things to enjoy at his celebration minus the mac’n cheese. On the menu were hot dogs, (brats for adults) gold fish, lots of fruit, orange pineapple juice, chalk suckers, sour candy, lemon cake etc….. Notice the absence of chocolate? As I was getting a list down of his favs I noticed I didn’t have any chocolate. I ended up making homemade Oreos for the other kids to enjoy and to have some chocolate since it is mommy’s favorite ☺
He loved blowing out his candles and did such a good job that Papa lite them again. It was the best watching his face light up listening to everyone sing to him. He loves the birthday song especially when it is for him.

Our attempt to get a picture with Nana and Papa. Not very successful since the half eaten cake tipped over. 

Then is got shoved in Jackson's face by Maggie 

He loves these chalk suckers and so do I since they are so easy to clean up!


He was walking around watching the kids hitting the balloons and screaming with excitement like this.

Baby Gray had tons of fun too with lots of love from all his family

 Hanging out with Aunt Nanny
Grayson was all partied out

The balloons ended up being a big hit. He loved kicking, hitting and even popping them.

Everyone was so nice and brought Dax a gift to open. Here we have a Monkey back pack from Nana. She calls him "Monkey Boy"

We got him this Movie. Its his new favorite.

He got a piggy bank from Grammy to start saving up for college and a mission. Lots of books, trucks, learning toys and BIG Legos1

These two sweet girls are always helping out with Dax. Best baby sitters in the WORLD!

Of course we must have the Piñat! Dax went first and didn't do much damage.  He just liked swatting at it and gave it his best effort using the bat even though it was too heavy for him

At the end of the day everyone ran around popping the balloons with their behinds! This was quit funny to watch.

McKay even joined in
Once again, I had way too much fun with the decorations. I was pretty proud of my self this year since I made most of them for really cheap and used a lot of stuff from other parties.

My mom found this great hotdog stand at a garage sale for a steal! It even matched the part colors.

Want to take a guess who's little fingers those are?

We had so much fun watching our family members play and help Dax enjoy his special day.

Here is the questionnaire I am going to try and ask my kids on their bday every year.
