Nixon had the busiest, most fun birthday this year! He woke up to 6 balloons hanging from his ceiling. Don't mind his "room". When we moved in, they boys were in their bunk beds downstairs. Then, after a couple of months, Nixon decided he was too scared to sleep downstairs anymore, even with Jace in there with him. We moved them to the extra room upstairs in their sleeping bags hoping that they would get over it soon. Well, fast forward to 4 months later, and Jace has since moved back downstairs by himself, and Nixon still wants to be upstairs, closer to our room. We still haven't gotten him a bed, or moved his clothes up, or anything. He still is in a sleeping bag on the floor! One day, we'll get it together :)
Once he was all ready for school, we let him open a few presents from us.
Then, at school, I brought treats for his class. He wanted Reese's Peanut Butter cups. Easy enough! I got there just in time to see which table earned the most points for the week. It was his table! They got to go pick a prize from the treasure box.

Then we met Granny at McDonald's with the Dowdy's for a little birthday lunch. I didn't even get a picture with Granny! I told the kids I'd get them ice cream, and of course, their machine wasn't working! I ran next door to Maverick, and got them each a yummy ice cream cone! Talon was in heaven when Leila shared with him, and would NOT let go! Luckily, Leila was fine with that.
Paul thought it would be fun for us to go check out the private jet that he flies. We headed over to the hangar after McDonalds. It was so cool! He even let them sit in his seat in the cockpit, and talk over the intercom!
Then we went to pick Jace up from school, and headed to Boondocks with friends to go bowling. All of our kids had earned a free game of bowling from school, and the coupon was going to expire today, so we went for Nixon's birthday!
|Nixon was so funny. He would throw the ball, and then RUN down the side to watch it hit the pins!|
|Talon had fun just hanging out|
|Jace tried to beat his ball down, but didn't quite make it|

Then, when Daddy got home from work Nixon decided that he wanted to go to Arctic Circle for dinner. Earlier, when we were at McDonalds, he asked for ice cream, and I said yes. He said, But I want to go to Arctic Circle for dinner and get ice cream too. Can I get ice cream two times? I said "It's your birthday! You can have ice cream as many times as you want!"
|I love Talon's face in this picture!|
