A Big 8 Year Old!

Guess who had a birthday?
Alex turned eight years old last week.
Happy birthday!
In the morning, Alex and Nolan worked on this Cars puzzle.
Of course they were both proud to have done it all by themselves.
Alex wanted to sing happy birthday to himself.  John had a hard time convincing him to just sit and listen while everyone else sang happy birthday to him.
Alex chose chocolate cupcakes,
Alex blew out all the candles.... or so he thought.  Darn those trick relighting candles.  He was a great sport though.
Alex enjoyed opening his presents.
Big brothers were quick to help him figure out new toys.
Alex got this Darth Vader mask from our friends the Medranos.  It is his favorite.
The boys like to read in their room before bed so we got Alex a light that he could control since he is the oldest.  :)
Happy birthday to Alex.  I can't believe how much he has grown over the years.  He is full of laughter and almost always has a smile.  He is the funniest little big boy!
We love you Alex!
