Zeke's Birthday!

On the 6th of this month Zeke turned 8!  He was so excited for this birthday to come.  Turning 8 is a big thing.  He got to join scouts with his brothers, he got to be baptized and he got a build-a-bear from Michael's mom.  He also got his own set of scriptures and a journal for him to write in.

To make the day even better, we had a snow day!  It was supposed to be the first day back to school after Christmas break but because of wind chills in the negative 50's and 60's we all got to stay home.  All the kids woke up early so he could open his presents before Micheal went to work.  We knew he wouldn't be able to wait all day so we did it early!

We spent the day inside because of the cold weather and the kids enjoyed one more day of break before they headed back to school.  Zeke picked out finger steaks and macaroni and cheese for his birthday supper.  Then he wanted a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting  with nothing on it for his treat.  That made it easy for me!

The Sunday after he turned 8 he was baptized.  Michael baptized him.  He chose Dillon to give a talk on baptism and he chose Maddi to give a talk on the Holy Ghost.  He got to pick out the songs he wanted to sung too and he chose Zane to give the opening prayer and I got to give to closing prayer.  It was a very special day.

 They dressed alike that day - cute huh?
Zeke is a very special boy and we are so thankful to have him in our family.  He is a boy with a great understanding or the gospel and what is right and what is wrong.  He is very caring and loves to make people smile with his funny jokes and his kind deeds.  He loves to help me and everyone else and is always willing to step in when needed.  I love him so very much and I am so proud of him and who he is becoming!
