Alex's 1 Year Anniversary Party

We finally got around to celebrating having Alex home for 1 year. In the pictures above he is trying to blow out the candles by yelling at them! He has completed one year of pre-school, is currently in summer school for one more week and will be starting kindergarten in the fall. Alex has fit into our family really, really well and we love him tons!!

While we memory

While we were eating... ... they were hungry
While we were playing... ... they were restrained
While we were tucking our kids into bed... ... they were alone
While we turned up the heat... ... they laid in the icy cold
While we wrapped our children in blanket sleepers... ... they laid in their own excrement
While we sang songs and listened to music... ... they listened to the screams and cries of those around them
While we rocked our babies... ... they silently rocked themselves
While we hugged our kids... ... they scratched at their own faces and pulled their own hair for stimulation
While we cried over scraped knees... ... they moaned in their loneliness
While we brushed our daughters' beautiful hair... ... they had their heads shaven to stave off the lice
While we fought off the flu with love and nourishment... ... they got the flu and went Home.
No longer suffering... but so many more still are.

In memory of those that have never felt the love of a family, and have passed away alone.

This is what happens at our house when Uncle Dan shows up and plays some of his old Fozzy music. As Franklin is dancing, Alex is throwing things to the upper bunk so he can try to throw them into the light fixture which happens to be a halogen bulb. Before the video started Alex had already taken off his pants, socks and shoes to try to throw into the light fixture. You might want to turn the volume down for this video.

Alex is simply thriving in our family. He still has many rules to learn though, like don't kick or stomp on our parrots if they fly to the ground and no driving the car, but he is catching on. He liked trick-or-treating but was happy to just play with the candy and not eat it. School is going very well and the teachers are impressed at how well he imitates what he is shown.
