Dawson's birthday party invitations
His cake was a 'naked' cake, which means that the sides aren't frosted

The boys were so excited to play laser tag!
Kate needed a picture with them, so her she is center stage!
Are you ready to rumble?
I wasn't able to get pictures in the dark... but afterwards, all of the boys were red and quite sweaty!!! 3 games of laser tag will do that to you!

We were rushing a bit to squeeze everything in, but sang a quick happy birthday to Dawson and then opened presents while the boys ate cake!!!

That night, we ran to Wendy's for Dawson's birthday dinner ... Tracy (Jordan) and Laura (Sam) met us there. It was again quick, because we were having a family birthday party for him! It was slim pickings - just Tracy, Jordan, Laura, Sam, and Kathy, plus our 5! Dawson was spoiled as usual. Here is a picture of his loot!
From mom and dad - 4 shirts, 2 pants, Cannon Brawlers account, and gold for another computer game!
From Faith and Kate - Perplexus game!
From Grandma Cindy and Grandpa Kelly - a new warm coat for those freezing Idaho winters!
From Grandma Kathy and Grandpa Jerry - a new lego set!
From the Atkinsons - cold, hard cash! Yes, you are spoiled Dawson!
We loved you from the minute we found out you were joining our family! You definitely made a splash for your entrance! You continue to charm us with your witty comments, your sweet hugs, and that dashing smile! We love you Big D!!! Happy 10th birthday!
