Happy 4th birthday, Alex!

Time to celebrate Alexandre’s fourth birthday. Nothing like a dozen four-year olds, loaded to the gills with sugar, running around the place like madmen to give Maman and Papa the nice, relaxing Sunday afternoon they deserve after a hard week at work, right?

Actually, credit to the kids. They mostly burned off their energy playing outside, and when the cake came out, they sat around the table quietly, waiting to be served. Papa even remarked at the time that he was astonished how well-behaved this group of kids was. Certainly less rowdy than some of the dinner parties we’ve thrown for grown-ups at our place.

Presents, presents galore. The next few days will require extra vigilance to avoid stepping on one of the million pieces of Lego scattered around the house.

All of Alexandre’s favorite characters were here — PJ Masks and Spiderman on the table

That’s one heck of a candle! Hope you brought your super-powers to blow it out!

This much sugar + this many small children = this won’t end well

One thought on “Happy 4th birthday, Alex!

  1. I ENJOYED THIS SO MUCH. THANKS. ALSO ENJOYED YOUR DAD’S VISIT. WHEN HE LEFT, IT WAS LIKE I WAS FINALLY ABLE TO TOTALLY LET GO, AND PUT CLOSURE ON THE LOSS OF MY DEAR SISTER. YOUR DAD SEEMS AT A TOTAL LOSS – GIVE HIM LOTS OF LOVE.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THAT HANDSOME FOUR-YEAR-OLD, PRECIOUS ONE. THEY GROW UP TOO QUICKLY, BELIEVE ME, AND THEN YOU ARE OLD. POOH.

    KEEP IN TOUCH – I LOVE IT, AND I LOVE YOU.

    AUNT JOAN
