It's great to be 8

Trey turned 8 this year and chose to be baptized! He really did learn about it and decide for himself that he wanted to follow Christs example and get baptized. What a celebration it was with lots of family coming to celebrate with him.
A few of the Tennessee Longneckers were there too - but I didn't get a picture of them :( Some of our favorite gifts came from those family members that were not there but sent something fun for Trey - Aunt Alison sent Trey a white towel that had his name and baptism date embroidered on it and Kelsey and Mike sent an autographed Cougar football signed from all the players saying Happy 8th Birthday Trey!
Grandma made Trey an awesome blanket to talk about the Holy Ghost being a comforter - he LOVES it. Uncle Erik and Ben were the witnesses and Grandpa and Natalie said prayers with Aunt Kim leading the music. Trey did NOT want a special musical number - he is becoming more like his dad EVERY DAY!
What a weekend it was - there was also bowling and dinner (with 22 of us), swimming and a trip to the zoo! Thanks everyone for such a special weekend for such a special and loved boy. Trey, you are smart and kind and funny. You are tender hearted and a wonderful brother that would do anything to protect those you love. Recently your soccer coach described you perfectly - you are never in a hurry but always in the right place at the right time. I want time to slow down but I am obsessed with watching you grow and experience new things - you do it with such confidence and grace. You are very humble and shy away from attention but that shouldn't fool anyone because you are competetive to the core! We love you Trey!

It was one of the best weekends of 2012, so far! We loved being there with you guys. He does have a lot of his dad in him. It's fun to see! Love that boy so much! I need some digital copies of Natalie's pix, since I don't think I ever even took out my camera.
