Dawson is 4!

Today Dawson turned 4. I can't believe that our little boy is 4. Wow how time flies. I asked him what he wanted to do for his birthday and he said he wanted a "National Treasure" birthday. Well as you can imagine we could not find anything-dang it! Dawson then decided he didn't want a friend party at all. What is up with that! He didn't really want to do anything for his B-day, until I mentioned bowling! He was all over that! He decided that he wanted just family to go-seriously who would not want to go bowling with friends? However I guess I am glad he still likes to be with us,I know that that wont always be the case. So Saturday we all went bowling with Grandma and Grandpa Wood and Grandma and Grandpa Morris, Robert, MaryAnn, Melissa and Emily. We had a blast. Dawson was a hoot to watch, I took video so enjoy!

After bowling we went to the SUU football game. It was great weather and we whooped up on Adams State( where ever that is). It was a great day! So now onto today-his actual birthday-
We have a tradition in our family that on your birthday you get to have whatever breakfast you want in bed. Dawson loved this. He ate his cinnamon rolls with a huge smile. Then he decided he wanted to have a cupcake party. He had to explain to me that that is when you have your friends over just for cupcakes. O.K. I had already made the cupcakes this morning so we just made some calls. Dawson requested McDonalds for lunch so me, Bry and Ky took him to McDees. After that came the highlight of his day. It was also his first day of school. I don't know if he was more excited about his birthday or his first day of school. He looked so big with his backpack on. Of course he just walked right in sat down and had a blast the whole time! He told us he learned about the letter A. They sang a bee song and had a snack. Sounds good to me! Dawson and Mrs.Orton

After school was his cupcake party. He had Camryn, Easton, Cole, Zander, Trenton, Brea and of course Brooklynn,his other sister. They all just played and ate as many cupcakes as they could.


Zander, Camryn, Trenton, Dawson, Cole, Easton Dawson finished his big day with some pizza. It was another great day. I still can't believe that he is 4, he is really growing up to be such a gentleman. My heart still melts with his hugs and kisses. I hope that never changes. He has definitely taught me a lot- PATIENCE, Unconditional love, how to really give a hug, LAUGHTER(never a shortage when he is around), singing and dancing always makes you feel better and you can do it anytime and anywhere, what it means to have energy(wish I could bottle that up and drink it) and no matter where he is, it is a PARTY! I love ya buddy!
