Happy Birthday Alec!!!

8. It's kind of surreal. The 2nd major milestone birthday for our family this year.

We decided to do a low key birthday celebration for Alec this year. With his baptism planned for Saturday, and a party after, I didn't need any more stress. Plus, it seems every time I try to plan a party for one of my children, it's an inconvenience for some, and I won't let even a hint of that spill over to my children...I want their birthday to be all about them.

Alec asked me to make cupcakes with chocolate frosting. (That was a surprise in and of itself). I had a thing I had to attend at work in the morning. We went swimming in the afternoon, grabbed McDonalds for dinner, and then opened a few presesnts.

He was thrilled with his gifts, from the cash from his different grandparents, to the HUGE Bionicle and new DS game from Cole and I. Unfortunately, I didn't have the settings on my camera right to get good pictures of him blowing out the candles, but all in all, I think he had a nice, special day.
