After helping me move the oven back into the kitchen, he helped me bake, frost, (and lick, of course) his birthday cake.
He waited and waited, not so patiently, for everyone to get home from school and work so he could open his gifts.
They were worth the wait!
His birthday also happened to be the very day that our next door neighbor missionary returned home.
So we had a celebratory hot dog roast in the backyard for dinner and listened to mission stories.
It was a real treat!!
Last, but not least....the cake was great! A great end to a great day!!
