Quinton's Birthday and Baptism

 So our Quinton is eight!  He is definitely a typical eight year old - loves minecraft, bathroom humor, crazy antics, and being "good at everything" (the confidence of youth!)

 He asked for spaghetti and garlic bread for his birthday dinner.  I have to say, I am lucky that my family's
birthday requests are usually very easy to fulfill!

 Birthday pose for the camera!

 Opening his presents - this one is a scooter.

 The latest Elephant and Piggie books.

A kid-friendly camera.  You can guess which gift he was most excited about!

Quinton said he wanted donuts instead of cake, so that was another easy request!

 Grandma and Grandpa were out of town for his birthday, so they came by the next night to celebrate.  They got him a plant terrarium that grows carnivorous plants.  We haven't done it yet because it requires being kept in the fridge for 6 weeks and I haven't been able to commit that much fridge space yet.  Maybe after the holidays.

 Quinton was baptized a week after his birthday.  It was a nice low-key affair.  Antonio baptized and confirmed Quinton.
