Happy Birthday, Xander!

Today is X-man's birthday.  He's been counting down the days for the last several weeks.  Yesterday I asked him what he was excited for about his birthday and he said with great enthusiasm, "Because Dad's gonna take me to the store and buy some new cool shoes!"  (:  Jeremy knew nothing about that, by the way.  Hmmmm.

Xander has the kindest, sweetest heart.  He usually responds the best of any of the kids when I ask for something-- his answer is almost always, "Sure!"  He loves to take care of people by bringing them blankets, offering massages, making them snacks, etc.  Yesterday Lexi had a friend over.  Xander got out five big tupperware bowls, filled them with snow (old snow-- ick!), added sno cone flavoring, then set the table for a "snow feast."  When I walked in and found them eating it I was a little bit disgusted and a lot humored.  Unfortunately, when I told the friend's mom (mistake) I think she was a little humored and a lot disgusted.  (;   It was so Xander.  He is constantly making big messes that have purpose to him (filling bags with lots of random things from around the house, creating new inventions, etc) and wants "real tools" for his birthday so he can build things.  He is a good friend, a leader, tender-hearted, impulsive, cuddly, handsome, super-duper silly, and very loved.

Breakfast in bed choice-- juice, bacon, mangoes, grapes, fried egg sandwich with lots of pepper

Happy 8th birthday, Xander Commander!  We love you!

  4. Think of the profit margin if he sold his homemade snow cones! Happy, happy Birthday!
