Happy Birthday , Alexander!


When you turn six
When your older brother is your best friend in all the world
When you've learned to ride a bike
and to read
and to write cursive letters
When your teeth are falling out
naturally and otherwise
(no more running with rope in your teeth-I don't care if you're pretending to be a reindeer)
When you have gingerbread cake with egg nog icing
and decorate a Christmas tree till very late at night
When your brothers sing happy birthday among the carols and give you hugs
When you have a very special place in your mother's heart and in your father's heart
and they tell you so
When you are handsome and kind
When you're good at puzzles
and mazes
and games of all sorts
When you are looked out for by an older brother
and looked up to by three younger ones
there is reason to smile
that ear to ear smile that we all so love to see.

We love you, Alexander, happy birthday!

Thank you, everyone, Alex is so happy about your wishes. Thank you Stephen in Minnesota for the heads up. We'll be looking forward to a good year.

Rose, your profile comes up as "not available" maybe that's how you want it, but I thought you should know. Thanks for visiting!
