Our Namesday Boy

In a time of fiery temptations for the Church of Russia, 
 you manifested Christ’s love to your flock through meekness and humility. 
As a good pastor you laid down your life for Him. 
 Pray for us, Hieromartyr Alexander, that our souls may be illumined! 

 It's our son's namesday! I had a ton of fun wrapping his gifts yesterday! I really like buying wrapping paper from Home Goods and Marshalls because they always have good quality papers for low prices. This one was $2.99 for 30" x 12'. I like the gentlemanly combination of blue ticking stripes and brown ribbon.

I made my usual lenten cake for him (though this time he requested cupcakes)...  he really likes chocolate!  I baked, our daughter frosted the cupcakes, and the boys decorated them with mini Star Wars figures that we already had.  I love how they turned out!
