love is in the air

We are pretty blessed.  Our two favorite people...our 'little' brothers, Cortney and Landon, have both found true love.  I know that sounds so corny, but I can't help it.  I love watching them in love.  It is just such a blessing to watch them both so happy...even better?  They both proposed.  Yep, I am getting two new amazing sisters next year.

Cortney and Van have been together for a very long time.  Cortney proposed in an airport parking lot on the way to a surprise trip to Chicago on July 4th weekend.  She is already very much a part of the family...we just can't wait to make it official!  

Babette and Landon started dating a little over a year ago and I have never seen him happier.  She can definitely take that Bevan sarcasm with the best of them.  We went down to Dallas last weekend and met her family and surprised Babette at dinner after he proposed.  We hadn't been to dallas since before we moved to England, so I was so thankful we could be there!

They are both so lucky to have found women who make them better, happier people.  We love them all so much!

Parker E Alexander

I know that every parent says this, but I seriously have a moment at least once a day where I cannot believe how much I love this little man.  He stole my heart the moment he was born and has been stealing again every day since.  He makes me laugh when I'm trying to be stern and smile when I'm sad.  
He walks around singing with a southern accent and knows every word to 'Round Here'.  He 'builds a zoo' every day with his animals and asks for things like 'water buffalo' and 'okapi' to add to his collection (Rowan got him two water buffalo for his birthday).  He changes his clothes at least 4 times a day depending on whether he wants to be a football player, soccer player, baseball player, farmer or bull rider.  He loves to read and will always stop whatever he is doing to listen to a story.  He loves his sister and gives her lots and lots of hugs and kisses every day.  He tells me he loves me at the most random times throughout the day.  He is my little boy.
We had a wonderful time celebrating his birthday.  We started the day with breakfast at McDonalds with Gram Gram and G-Dawg (we let Row and Brady sleep in).  Brady took the day off and we went to Exploration Place, Chipotle  and then took naps.  Grammy came in time for dinner at Big Larry's (best cheeseburgers in VC, ha).  The next day we got to celebrate at preschool...so fun!  Then we ended the week with a party for friends on Sunday.  We are so blessed with this little man!

We spent an hour taking pictures like this on 'sports' mode of the camera.
Parker loves watching us play them back like a movie.

Don't mind my ugly cake...Parker told me it was beautiful:)

Making an imaginary cake with Mrs. Cathy at Preschool.

This was seriously the best picture I could find of the kids...getting them all to look
with a dog running around is not easy.
