Alden's Day

was on Saturday.
His day for a photo shoot. He was totally into it.
He told me he wanted to do a pose.... and this was it :)
And yes his jacket is way to small. His pants are again way too short. The kid just keeps growth spurting. He is going to be one tall guy when he's done!
Alden's pose
He's always got a drawing on the go. He drew this one just for our little photo shoot together. He came upstairs when I was waiting at the door for him to go for his pictures with this drawing in hand. So he could hold it out and I could take his picture - like his idea totally :)
His Drawings
Another pose by him
The Lean
Lots of this face. I mean way to much. SO Alden right now. Making that goofy face with his arms a' dancing.
Lots of this face
Finally a real smile. After I started tickling him!
Oct 15: A REAL smile
And then after one of his favorite dinners of Spaghetti with garlic toast, we went up to the church and he got baptized.
Oct 16 - Baptism
It was wonderful and I am so grateful for the family (still can't believe Susie and Ryan drove down from Calgary for it! Thanks so much guys!) and friends who came to this special day for Alden!
What a sweet boy he is. I should have had Regan take a picture of the two of us, but I didn't! This week I will!

And I forgot to add.... I did a little draw and Christine you won the apron! Let me know your address so I can mail it to you!
