Happy Birthday Alexander The Great

He's our baby...the big 'uh oh...'...the one that came along AFTER we were finally able to get into the car without packing the kitchen sink. Four seats in the roller coaster, four easily fit into a booth, four chairs around our tiny kitchen table. We had no idea what adding one more so far behind the other two would be like, what it would do to our family. I cried, I'll admit it. I had a nice little life. What would it be like starting over again? I'll tell you: He blessed our socks off, that's what!

He's gets his strawberry blonde hair from his Grandpa (John's dad) and looks like his Papa (my late dad). My daddy adored his grandchildren, he truly loved being a Papa. And I have no doubt he's pleased to see what a beautiful, kind soul his "Alexander The Great" has become.

~HAPPY 11th BIRTHDAY, ALEX~






(There's nothing on my lip, it was part of the effect and I can't undo it! No, really, it's not me!)

I have a special place in my heart for boys named Alex!

Happy Birthday! Give your mom an extra hard time today!

Plus, I don't think you should have to do any school work today!

Your doting Aunt Bea!

Ha! You didn't know you had an Aunt Bea, did you!

It's okay, I'm not any crazier than your mom!
