Happy Birthday, Zeke!

Tonight we celebrated Zeke's 7th birthday.  Such a cute, active, fun boy!

 Zeke, at 7 years old you
~are a bundle of raw energy
~sport a toothless grin
~love to play.  hard.
~think wrestling is as normal as breathing
~open your hands, shrug your shoulders, and say "What?" when you know fully well that you are in trouble
~make friends easily
~are best friends with your brother Josh and daycare friend Jack
~were very sad to be moved into the 1st grade Sunday School room...where there are no toys
~need it to be quiet to concentrate on your schoolwork
~can barely sit still to do your schoolwork
~jump up and down for 30 min solid while playing the Wii...I guess it helps
~are the best eater of all my children...you will try anything
~love strawberries, watermelon, cucumbers, lettuce, raw carrots, peas, pears, kiwi (to name a few)
~love to wear socks on your arms--the ones that mommy used in the hospital to cover her iv to keep Tirzah out of it
~love to wear ANY of the hospital socks from the surgical center
~love your curly hair
~will spend hours playing games you have dreamed up with Josh and Jack
~love to color and draw
~love to read
~got to go to lunch today at McDonald's with Josh and Jack (who is also celebrating his birthday today)...lucky guy!

~asked for strawberry cake and apple pie for your birthday.  I only made the cake, but then Eva (Papa & Grandma Marilyn's exchange student from Germany) surprised us with an apple "streuselkuchen"...which was pretty much better than apple pie!
~asked for pizza hotdish for supper, but compromised with lasagna (then said that you like lasagna better...thanks, honey!)

 We are so blessed to have you in our family!

Eden was our "event planner" tonight.  She planned a "pin the tail on the doggy" game.  She invited Emma to come over to our little party.  It was so fun to have her!  Eden kept everyone entertained with turns on the game and then taught Emma some magic tricks.  Mitch, Eva, Zeke and Micah played a fun German game that Kathi brought us called "Mensch ärgere Dich nicht" (very similar to Sorry).  Zeke won.  :)  It was a great night!
