[bigletter]This Easter was a special holiday, much like all of Jaxon’s “first holidays.” However, anytime Mommy and Daddy get to spend time with Jax together as a family is considered special. For those who don’t know, Dad attends school 5 hours away from us. Luckily, all of Jaxon’s big holidays were spent with both of his parents. For Easter, we took family photos. If you know anything about taking pictures with boys and men, then you KNOW how difficult it is to do.[/bigletter]
