Happy 2nd Birthday, Dawson!
You turned TWO YEARS OLD on Saturday!!
I cannot believe you are already two...that you've been here for 24 months already.
Two years ago, when I saw you for the first time, you looked like this:
And then last year, at your very first birthday, you looked like this:
You are an amazing little boy.
We celebrated your second birthday with Gran, Papa, Uncle Brandon, Uncle Jason, Aunt Krystal, Zoey and G-Pa the Great. They came to our house to eat cake and ice cream. You had a great time laughing and playing and opening gifts and eating these:
Mickey ear cupcakes! We also had make-your-own-ice-cream-sundaes.
We love you so much, little buddy...
"Happy Birthday, dear Dawson..."
Blowing out the candle...
You were much too busy eating the chocolate icing to hold up two fingers...
...but not too busy to open gifts. You got two puzzles and "If You Give a Moose a Muffin" from Aunt Megan, Uncle Web, Vance and Jack; a bubble mower and a dump truck from Zoey; a little town rug, cars and trucks and building blocks from Gran and Papa; a work bench from Uncle Brandon...
...and quite possibly the most awesome gift of all - your very own cowboy hat from G-Pa the Great!
We got you your very own vacuum cleaner since it's your most favorite thing in the world to do, and you wouldn't put it down, not even to get in your Fire and Rescue Car that we also got you.
She also thoroughly enjoyed the cake. :)
Sweet boy, after the party, the sugar, the excitement, what did you want to do...even right before you went to bed??
Best $14.00 I ever spent.
Happy, Happy Birthday, sweet Dawson! I love you so much!

The Charming Yankee
A Minnesota transplant, he traded goolash for grits and the Vikings for the Vols. He's been known to say it's the best move he ever made, and can't imagine how he ever lived without sweet tea and perfect strangers calling him "honey." His best friend is about two feet tall and calls him "Daddy."
The Sophisticated Gentleman
Also known as The Master to the Southern Belle and the Charming Yankee, this blue-eyed flirt enjoys playing, giving kisses and the Disney Channel. He's as sweet as pie - which makes you want to eat him up.
My little family and I live in Middle Tennessee...we love it here! My husband, David, works in pharmaceutical sales and my "occupation" is real estate agent. My "career", however, is stay-at-home mom! It's the best job I've ever had. Our little son, Dawson, is three years old and is the joy of our lives. Family is important to me - I have two brothers: Jason is an officer in the Army and Brandon is a cadet at the Air Force Academy. We hope this blog allows our family and friends who aren't close to us geographically a little insight into our world! Thank you for visiting!
