Nixon is 11

 It’s another BIG DAY in the Slaughter House.  Nixon Talbot turns ELEVEN YEARS OLD today!

Nixon has always been my full throttle, pedal to the metal, always keeping me on my toes kid.  While he’s still my most active child, now he’s also the most helpful around the house, the most respectful {I never have to remind him to “yes ma’am or yes sir” someone}, and he’s REALLY grown up over the last year-enough so that he feels and acts so ready for middle school.

Oh my goodness!  I remember that bright blonde hair!  Nix has had a great fifth grade year and will be ever so ready to tackle middle school in the fall.

He still enjoys sports…baseball and football are his favorite, he likes to fish, watch sports, and he knows sports stats like you wouldn’t believe.

And the hypnosis spell Britt put on Nixon almost four years ago is still going strong.  He loves that little girl so much he’d do absolutely anything for her.

Wishing the biggest BIRTHDAY WISH to my FAVORITE 11-year-old!  We love you, Nixon Talbot!

We happen to have a virtual learning day at your own pace so Nix lucked out with no school on his big day!  We’re off to celebrate!  See you back here tomorrow!
