I gathered buttons this summer for a project I was doing. I was amazed at how these buttons attracted the attention of my kids. You'd think I unwrapped a bag of Reeses Peanutbutter Cups. Alex had ideas. He insisted he needed certain buttons for this, that, and the other. On occasion I gave in. Everyone was excited about the colors and designs and all the funky old ones. Well one thing led to another. Samuel got out the ice cream and started making milkshakes. The two were a great combination.

When Alex was born the doctor (who happened to be a woman) claimed she had never seen such a beautiful baby! Now you may say, "Yeah right, she says that to every mother!" Well, you did not see her face. I took her comment and ran with it. I HAVE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BABY IN THE WORLD (I mean, in the lot of babies delivered by Dr. Olsen). Out of our way people, Curtis Alexander Stapp is coming through. Fast forward 12 years. He is still beautiful, but the sure look on the doctor's face is starting to fade from my memory. Did I really hear what I thought I heard at 4 am so many years ago? Oh well, it's my memory! To balance my memory information (which makes the story more believable) friends, I also remember one of my brothers grimacing at the ugliness of another one of my newborn children.
Back to the birthday boy. I look forward to seeing him reach up and over the Sacrament table to grab the emblems. Hopefully the administering Priest will be able locate his open hand down below! I'm going to try to figure out where Alex will pass the Sacrament so we can sit in his passing area. Have any of you done crazy things like this? Well it is a great day for all our family!

Samuel has been going strong on his acting career (of course he hasn't made a dime yet). Nothing holds him back. He is not afraid to go for the gusto in front of hundreds of people. Now if you ask him to sing for an intimate crowd at home he is all butterflies. What's up with that?? I suppose he just really loves the stage!
