Isn't it Great to be 8!

Elliott is 8!!!

His birthday was 2 weeks ago. We celebrated with our family at Friendly's (restaurant) and Chuck E Cheese. He was excited to receive lots of baseball gear. Now he has a real bat (a little scary!). Best of all, Elliott was baptized a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Saturday, January 14th by his daddy. It was a wonderful day. We were thrilled to have Grandma and Grandpa Walker and Grandma and Popeye Schelin here for the special occassion. Bianca Georges, a girl in our ward, was also baptized. After the service, we had some yummy treats at the church and then had lunch with a few of our friends and grandparents at our house. We had 15 kids here, along with about that many adults, and it was surprisingly not too crazy. Brent was pretty worried about having that many people here, but the kids all got along great with no problems. We are blessed to have many great friends who came to support Elliott. Thanks to all who were here with us and for all the well-wishes of those who couldn't be here. We are so proud of Elliott and his choice to be baptized. He is such a sweet boy and we are so happy to have him in our family. We love you, Elliott!
