Alekzoo's First

Yesterday we celebrated Alekzander’s first birthday.  Ashley and Andrew threw him a Pilgrims and Indians themed gathering, complete with the Mayflower, Plymouth Rock, Indian headbands, and a turkey shaped pumpkin cake.  They also collected 175 pounds of food to donate to a local shelter!  That makes my heart smile.  Alekzander is already starting to change the world – he is even helping to bring a baby from Africa home to his forever family.  This is how cute he looked crawling around on the Mayflower in his special [dirty] birthday shirt:

I really like my little Alekzoo.  In fact, I think I’m going to gobble up his thighs for Thanksgiving [on his real birthday].
