We were blessed by a visit from my brother Troy and his lovely wife Michelle recently. They were here from Austin for a wedding and stopped in to have dinner with us at a local restaurant. Alex LOVES his Uncle Troy, mainly because Troy is a pretty silly guy. Alex calls him his "funny Uncle Troy." This picture shows that silliness (and poor eyesight) are probably genetic traits.
When I look at Alex, the person he reminds me of most is Troy at that age--his face is similar to Troy's at age 6, and like Troy at that age, always on the move, full of imagination, and the life of every party. I hope Alex grows up to be the kind and loving man that Troy is now. I'm so proud to have him as my brother and Alex's "funny uncle."
