Happy 7th Birthday, Alex!

Dear Son,
It is hard to believe that it has been seven years since you were born. You were the only one of the five that came early and you were the smallest weighing just 6 lbs. and 12 ounces. I went to the hospital on the 13th of January not long after all of your Dad's family left for their homes after having had a late Christmas with us. So needless to say our Christmas decorations didn't come down very early that year. I am very thankful to have such a sweet and sensitive boy. I hope you had a great birthday!

The cake - this is what he asked for this year rather than a bakery cake. It is a Caramel-Fudge Cake from Taste of Home. It is a cake we all enjoy.

Here he is with his cake.

He was thrilled to receive Pit for his birthday. At Thanksgiving time when we were in Kansas he enjoyed playing this game with his Aunt Regina, cousins and brothers.

They also spent time playing Pit.
