Happy Birthday Alligator

Oh Alligator, you have been in our family for over a year. Happy Birthday!!!! I remember when Nana bought Gavin this alligator. See, Gavin was/is terrified of the alligator at Grapevine Mills Mall. So, last Thanksgiving we thought it would be funny to buy him this little alligator and see what he did. The first time he saw it, he was scared to death. We would randomly put it next to him, or on his shoulder. I know, we are sooo mean, but it was too funny. After the five day vacation, Gavin would hold this 8 inch alligator by the tail only. He had to be certain Alligators mouth came no where near him. It didn't take long for them to become friends. Gavin plays with him at least once a day now. Did i mention this alligator cost a total of...........wait.......wait......wait for whole dollar. ONE DOLLAR!!!!!! That's it. This stupid toy, that is a must have for Gavin, cost less that the donuts we ate yesterday. Anyways, needless to say, Gavin has become quite the fan of Alligators. He loves going to see them at the zoo, and watch them on national geographic. Although, he is still terrified of the alligator at Grapevine Mills Mall. Silly boy.

Lately, Alligator takes a bath with Gavin every night. Many nights we wash him too.

He came to the BYU game with usA sleeping companion
Playing under the kitchen table Thanksgiving morning Alligator has been to: Utah, Idaho, Montana, Tennessee, Arkansas, New Mexico, Louisiana, Texas and Oklahoma. Most of the time Alligator lives in Gavin's frog backpack. He also goes to church every week, eats meals, and runs many errands with us. Who knew one dollar could bring so much joy to this little boy. Happy Birthday Alligator!!!!
