Jackson's Family Birthday Party!

Jackson, the youngest cousin in the family, has been Taylor's a shining star along his road to recovery. As I've mentioned in earlier posts, Jackson's way of showing his love and support for Taylor has been through constant gift giving. He has built Taylor a Lego church, a Legoman in a wheel chair (complete with a Lego knit cap just like Taylor's), and a picture of Jackson at Christmas with the Chick-fil-A Cow. He has drawn pictures and cards and Valentines and even gave him some Gator themed Duct tape for Christmas! Jackson knows Taylor is a huge Gator and Tebow fan, so he too has become one, dressing the part almost every day. So it didn't surprise us when Jackson decided he wanted to have a "Gator/Broncos" Birthday party at the Becorests for his 7th birthday. Everyone happily obliged (even me, the lone Seminole fan!).

The whole family helped decorate!
Everyone wore Orange and Blue.
 Jackson loved his Tim Tebow Jersey from Taylor, Spencer and Sammy.

 I bet Jackson wished for Taylor to get well!
 Taylor took a stroll!
Spencer built some Police legos for Jackson!
Ya-Ya read the boys one of their favorite books from when they were little.
Needless to say, Jackson had a fabulous birthday!

Taylor made a special trip home from Jacksonville to celebrate Jackson's birthday. He wasn't feeling all that great after his latest chemo treatment last week, but he was really looking forward to spending the weekend at home. Early Sunday morning Taylor started running a fever so Melissa and Brad took him to the ER. His blood counts were really low and he was admitted. He's staying over night or until they can get his fever down and his blood counts up again. They are due back to Jacksonville Monday to continue radiation. We'll keep you posted on when they are able to leave.

Feel better Taylor! We're all praying for ya!

  1. Jackson's Family Birthday Party seems fantabulous. Keep sharing these details here. The color scheme is very exciting in this bash. My daughter loves colors so on her 12th birthday I threw a rainbow inspired party at the local party venue NYC which turned out to be just awesome.
