Since Drew and Jaxsen's birthdays are 5 days apart, and usually by the time we get Drew for his birthday it is Jaxsen's birthday, we have decided to celebrate them together. I know Jax loves it because he loves anything that has to do with his big brother. Drew, well I hope he doesn't mind.
We celebrated it at my parent's house this year, cuz we got a big family and my little apartment wasn't going to accommodate all of us!
Jaxsen is in love with Toy Story 3, so needless to say that is what his cake was. I am sad I didn't get a good picture of it. His grandmas and grandpas got him Buzz and Woody! He was quite thrilled with it! He was so cute at showing everyone each of the toys he opened.
Drew got a german chocolate cake (YUM) and money. Teenagers are hard to shop for! He also got gift certificates to DAPCO hobbies, to cover some of the costs to fix up his car he got for Christmas.
-Can walk, run, jump, climb with the best of them.
-Can say mom, dad, papa, drew, bubba. Little slower at the talking side.
-Although he can't talk he knows exactly what is going on and will make sure to get his point across!
-Has a love/hate relationship with his sister Baylee. Because they are so close they play pretty well together, until one ticks the other off, then watch out! Full of BRAWL!!
-Watches Toy Story 3 at least 2 times a day.
-Loves the story "GO DOGS GO".
-Still loves that binkie. He can only have at nap time and bed time. So we are slowly getting better.
-Gives the best "FIERCE" look. Would make Shaun proud!
-Still loves his dad and looks just like him!
-Very loving little guy, I still call him my baby and probably will till another baby joins our family!
LOVE YOU BUDDY!
-Quite the tall 13 year old and has a low voice to match it!
-Has already had a few mom's tell us he needs to take their daughters out when they turn 16. Hold on MOM's he is only 13!
-Quite the football player. Last season was one of the captain's!
-Still a pyromaniac! That kid loves fireworks, and anything to do with fire. YIKES!
-Loves his remote control car and his paintball gun!
-Is starting to talk about what car he wants when he turns 16. Is he a really almost that old.
-Loves to play slug-bug with his step-mom! Both of us are quite competitive.
-Best big brother my kids could ever ask for! He is such a helper! Could ask for a better GUY!
Someone in my family told Brooklyn we are eating at Cinderella's castle when we go to Disney World in November. The funny thing is Brooklyn has no clue when November is so everyday she tells me she wants to eat at the castle when I ask her what she wants for lunch! It is going to be a long 6 months!
Brooklyn got a new stroller for her dollies but isn't allowed to have until she goes poop in the potty (refer to old blog). She refuses to go number 2 in the potty but really really want her stroller. Anyways she comes to me one night and saysBrooklyn: "My dolly so heavy."Me: "I sorry."Brooklyn: "I think I need my stroller to put heavy dolly in."She thinks she is so slick! Must get it from her dad!
We are pulling into Walmart yesterday and Brooklyn says, Brooklyn: "I get a snow white toy?" Me: "We'll see." Brooklyn: "Don't say no mama. You be nice to me." Honestly what do you say to that?
Brooklyn wakes up a Grandma Lemmons house this morning and tells grandma, Brooklyn: "I wanna make cookies!" (At 8:30 in the morning I might add.) Grandma: "I've got to go to work right now." Brooklyn: "Grandma, girls don't go to work, boys do." Where she gets her logic I'll never know. Hope grandma is ok!
I picked up Drew yesterday and he tells me that he got his license to shoot birds. (Which I am not a fan of of but that is up to him). Anyways he says he was able to go hunting last week. I said- ME: "How did you do?" DREW: "I can't hit the broad side of a barn" just a serious as can be.
Grandma and Brooklyn were making cookies and grandma happened to be a little tired. In the process of making cookies Brooklyn spilled a glass of juice that was on the counter. Grandma apparently said a little too loud "GET DOWN!" Brooklyn ran off crying, a few minutes later she returned and said to Grandma "Grandma, you scared me to crap!"
Brooklyn: Mom, you know what? Me: What? Brooklyn: (In her most serious voice) Trix are for kids! And that silly rabbit keeps trying to get them! He is such a silly rabbit!
04/10 As I was putting the girls down for a nap I told Baylee that if she got out of bed I was going to spank her butt (I have to threaten in order for her to stay put!) Brooklyn always has to add as soon as I say I am going to spank someones butt "With a spoon." I don't know where she got that from. Anyways Baylee this time decided to say "With a spoo, or a fooook, or a knife. Really harrrd. All I could do was laugh.
5/10 We went into the bathroom this evening and miss Baylee had about 15 of the band-aids removed from the paper, spread out and stuck to the bathroom counter. ARRRGGGG!
Baylee and Jaxsen were going crazy tonight wrestling and running all over the living room! Andrew looked at them as they were crawling all over him and said "Who put a quarter in you?" Baylee responded by saying "ME!"
