Yesterday was Trey's 8th birthday!  (This picture was from his birthday party last year!)
Trey was our 18th grandchild and 11th grandson.
He's an important part of this very large family
and of course an important part of this very beautiful family.
I wrote about Trey on his birthday last year in this post and visiting there will take you to links to all his previous posts showing lots of pictures and telling lots of little things about him.  So I'll just show a few pictures here of how he's changed over the years.

and talk about what's been going on in his life during the past year.  First of all he's in 2nd grade and doing great.  His teacher calls him a book monster because he cannot get enough to read!
He played soccer last summer and was an intense, competitive, and focused player

and was a very good sport even when he wasn't playing.
Also, he ran Cross Country last fall and did an awesome job, played coach-pitch baseball last summer, and built amazing Lego structures over Thanksgiving weekend.
But it's not so much what he did that I want to talk about.  It's more about what an exceptional boy he is.  He's very thoughtful, helpful, and eager to please;
and enthusiastic.... about everything!
including showing off his dancing skills at the Christmas house.

He has fun with all his cousins - big and little
and he's genuinely fun to be around.  All in all, you couldn't ask for a smarter, sweeter, more cooperative, or loving boy!  That's why we love him so much and are so very proud of him!  So Happy Birthday, Trey - just a day late.  We know your day was amazing because you told us so and we're hoping that the coming year is your best one yet but not nearly as great as the many, many more to come!
