Today is Jaxon's first birthday. To celebrate, we threw him a Pirate themed party. We sent out invitations that said "you Arrrr invited," and had pirate booty to give out as party favors. We also had this pirate face cutout that the party guests could put their faces in and get their picture taken. Here is a picture of Captain Jaxon.Jaxon's first mate Tim gets his picture taken.Amanda as a pirateJaxon wanted to help get things ready for the party. He he is helping Tim put some pop in the cooler. He wanted to check every can for quality by shaking it before it was put in the cooler.
Here Jaxon is trying to open his presents. He was a little bit more interested in his presents this time around than he was at Christmas time. Here he is opening one of his presents from the Miller family.
Benson is helping Jaxon unwrap the present. I think Benson was a little more excited to open the present than Jaxon was.
Here are a few of the presents that Jaxon got for his birthday. He got a cool sports center where he can practice his basketball, football and baseball skills
Jaxon also got a whole bunch of goodies. The cars and treats were gifts that we bought with some money sent from Jaxon's Great Grandma and Great Aunt from Cranbrook.
Here is Jaxon's cake. X marks the spot to the pirate treasure. The gold bars surrounding the cake were little cakes for the guests to eat and take home
Jaxon looked a little bit scared when we were presenting his cake to him. He didn't know how to blow out the candle, so Amanda helped him.
Jaxon hasn't been feeling too well the last few days, so I don't think he had too much of an appetite for cake. He did scoop off a lot of frosting from the top and managed to get it all over him.
But after a while, Jaxon had had enough cake and was ready for something else. Here he is fighting back the tears waiting to get cleaned up and taken out of his high chair.
It was a pretty rough day fighting with the cold that he had, but Jaxon had a lot of well wishers that came to visit him. We want to thank all those that came to Jaxon's party today, and those that sent their wishes to him and weren't able to be here today. Especially we want to thank Grandma and Grandpa Pisko, Mel and Hayden, Jay and Brenda, Amanda and Autum, Duncan, Katrina, Mac, Benson, Bailey, Grandpa Nelson, Kris, Leah and Dave, and everyone that couldn't be here that wished they could. It's been a great year for Jaxon, and I'm sure if he could talk he would tell you all that he loves you.
