Four

Happy Birthday to my sweet boy, Jaxon.

Some facts about the birthday boy:

Jaxon is very outgoing, and enjoys talking to anyone that will lend a listening ear.
Jaxon loves animals--especially his hound, Hendrix, and Grandma and Grandpa's cats.
Jaxon is very stubborn, he's a do-it-himselfer.  He has a hard time asking for help, even if something is frustrating him.
Jaxon is all boy--he loves superheroes, cars, planes, trains and dirt.
Jaxon is very kind-hearted.  When he sees a need, he tries to meet it.
Jaxon is very color-oriented.  Ask him what his favorite color is, and he'll likely answer "turquoise" or "chartreuse".

Jaxon is a natural big brother.  He has found his calling in life since his baby sister was born.
Jaxon has an amazing memory and an advanced sense of justice--don't think for a second you're going to get away with telling him he can do something, and forgetting.
Jaxon loves McDonald's.  A lot.

Happy birthday, little man!  I love you so very much.

Happenings

Recently around Casa Ruiz...
...I hung out with Bumblebee and a sweet girl with (reluctantly!) a candy-corn headband.  We had to explain to Jaxon that, when trick-or-treating, we don't need to let ourselves in others' houses.  Taking the candy and saying "Thank you" is enough.

...my baby boy started Preschool.  And he LOVES it!

...and my baby girl, well... she grew two teeth.  Now she's ready for some steak and potatoes, she'll thank you kindly.
