October '13 Flashback

Typically, October is the busiest month of the year for Mom at work because of multiple ASB school events.  A natural consequence is less photos. 
Sorry about that.

The first week of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Week at the high school.  This year, Umma and Alexander joined me at the football game.  Unbeknownst to us, they re-dedicated the announcer booth to Ho-Ho Papa.  Brief history behind the dedication:  Ho-Ho Papa announced football games for 25 years and they made the official announcement of the dedication on October 4, 2013.  On this Friday night in October, we were surprised by the dedication, and happy to have the distraction of the Breast Cancer Awareness activities to keep our emotions intact.

At halftime, Alexander helped me explain how the donations would work.
And, then he manned the donation table, helping the big kids to raise $1800.00.

Homecoming festivities soon followed and Alexander was back at work, helping the big kids.
After he showed them his dance moves, obviously.

Soon after Homecoming festivities ended, it was time to celebrate Christmas!

As it turns out, seven year olds lose teeth.  A lot of teeth.

Here is his picture from the first week of September.
Over the next month, our boy turned from Snaggle Tooth to Toothless
Toothless showed up the night before picture retakes.
I emailed my contact at the photo company (it's nice to have contacts) because I wanted to keep a copy of the first photo because it makes me laugh every time I look at it.
She said I could keep one copy and return the rest and if anyone asked, I could give her name.
It worked like a charm and we have these photos to remember first grade!

For Halloween, Alexander and his best friend Addie, wanted to partner up.
Harry Potter and Hermione!

Happy Halloween!!
