First Day of School Photos

Fall is here, hear the yell, back to school, ring the bell,
Brand new shoes, walking blues, climb the fence,
Books & pens…I can tell that we are gonna be friends.

  Love that song!  I will tell you more later, about WHY it is stuck in my head at the moment.  Pretty exciting stuff!

  So, school is back in full swing at our house.  For the first time in 6 years, our family is attending somewhere other than Central Christian.  Our family goes back 30 plus years at that school, but the Lord called us to a different school this year.  I will share more about that tomorrow, but for now, here are our first day of school photos!

A ”P” Party for P-Man

happy 4th birthday paxton

   We decided for Paxton’s 4th birthday, we would have a “P” Party, after the funny thing that happened last month.  Like I said, not really a full fledged party, but a themed celebration none the less.

You may have read his statement on facebook:

Paxton: “Mom, you call me P-Man because I pee a lot.”
Me: {snort} Um, no buddy, I call you P Man because your name starts with the LETTER P!
Paxton: “OH.”

Boy, glad we cleared that up!

   We were at my moms most of the day, due to us having no kitchen.

  Here are the photos from Sunday:

Presents
party 1

Police Gear, remote control car and sheriff set from mommy and daddy.

  The car and bopper hands came from the other kids.
party 2

  They wrapped up some of their own favorite toys from the playroom closet for him to have.  party 3

Nana made us a yummy Chicken Salad for lunch with Potato Sticks. party 4

Mmm! I have blogged this one before!  It’s a family fav. Click pic for recipe!

  That afternoon sweet Nana fixed us a P snack:
Punch, really fruity water…amazing!  Party picks, pretzels, pineapple and pepper slices.
party 5

We skyped Papa Clay and Grammy Drea, then headed to supper. Paxton picked PIZZA, how fitting! party 7

We were thankful Grandpa and Grandma Cottingham, and Great Grandma could join us too.  party 8

Back to Nana’s house for Pie

All of a sudden, there was a knock at the door. 

A special surprise for Paxton via his Uncle Dan and Aunt Gena….

Oh, and just this VERY moment, I remembered I bought a Pinata on the clearance rack for $3 last month, planning to fill it with stuff from our candy basket and mini toys for his celebration….rats!

Happy Birthday, Paxton! This Is Your Life

  I am pausing Photo Week today to share This Is Your Life….

  Paxton is the only Ferguson child whose entire life is captured on this blog.  He grew up on here before your and my eyes, so today let’s take a trip down memory lane and revisit some of those cute moments and funny firsts.  You can click on the titles to go to those posts if you’d like. We sure had fun reading through all of them!

  This weekend was his 4th birthday!  He was so proud to be a BIG BOY.  We threw a little “P Party”……

  Now, this was not a darling, themed, letter P party, with pinterest worthy decor. Ha! No time for that!  But it was a fun celebration none the less. :)  I will share that tomorrow.

  Now a walk down memory lane!   

The Story of Paxton

  Paxton’s healthy birth was truly a miracle and gift from God….Our Father in Heaven even nudged people we didn’t know, to cover our pregnancy is prayer, and only He knows the extent of His covering on Paxton in the womb as He fed and gave Him oxygen when my body could not.

Scrolling through these photos makes me tear up! He has changed so much these past few years.  Good bye baby face, hello big boy.

Love you to the moon and back, Paxton Clay!
