So big. So fast.
One of the many traits Annaliese and Caspian have inherited from their mother is an enthusiasm for their birthdays. They start talking about their birthdays a good month or two in advance, plan and re-plan their parties, and talk endlessly about their cake and dinner choices. You know, just like Alexe.
Each year Alexe makes their dreams come true. First with a cake, made by her to order.
Caspian picked a pool party this year.
Older, wiser, and a much better host.
His sister was also older, wiser, and better playing second position for the day.
A family party at home, a friends party at the pool, and presents arriving in the mail for days before and after his birthday. I think the event was appropriately celebrated.
