Happy Birthday Baby Boy!

Today is my youngest child's birthday. He is 14 years old and is such a good kid. He loves to ride BMX and actually won a trophy of which is is very proud. He also plays the trumpet in the school band and is excited to get to High School so he can be in the marching band. He is a great son and I am so very lucky to have him! (And sometimes he smiles, he really does...he just doesn't like the way he looks when he does.) Even without a smile he is a handsome fellow!

We stopped by a craft store last night to see if there was something amazing he wanted for his b day, and he wanted some rubber letters so he could put them on his chest and spell his name while getting a suntan. Now that is a little bit weird but at least I know where he is most of the time and he hasn't gotten into any really big trouble. (Except those pesty grades! Evil Algebra.)

This is the boy who hugs me all the time and tells me how pretty I am (did I mention he was a bit delusional?) he still goes to church with me without protest, and he even gives me foot massages! This child is a saint. He was worth the labor, the C-section, the nursing and all the other childhood traumas. I love you Alex! You are the best.

Aw, this was a sweet post. Alex is a good kid, even though he wants contrasting skin colors to spell out his name. Silly rabbit.

Rubber letters for his chest tan? I must say I have never heard such a unique birthday request. And to think all I want is to smell good via some perfume. I may need to get a bit more creative. Happy Birthday wishes!

All right Marrdy - this is my first official blog stalking although apparently it is quite the sport. Tell Alex we all say Happy B-day and for some unknown reason Tal gets the present request - weird kids
