Last Friday was Maddi's birthday. She turned 8 years old. She will be getting baptized on Sunday. She is so excited. I can't believe she is that old. Time sure flies! We had a little party for her Friday night. She invited over 3 friends. She wanted to do the same thing Makenna did for hers, so we did a pajama party with pedicures, food, a movie, cake and ice cream. Michael took the other kids bowling (except for Lala) so Maddi and her friends had the house to themsleves. Saturday I took Maddi to town for her birthday date. We ate lunch at McDonalds and went shopping. (By the way, I did finally get to go on a birthday date with Makenna on Wednesday). It was fun to spend one on one time with her. Dillon and I also went to school on Friday and ate lunch with her. Today is Michael's birthday. I made him apricot fried pies, his favorite. The kids all tackled him after supper and tried to give him birthday spankings. While the kids had him pinned, Olivia came up and with her snow boot son, kicked him in the head and kind of stepped on him. When she got a good reaction from it she dis it again and again, until he grabbed her and started tickling her. She is a little monster and loves to play like the big kids! All in all it has been a good weekend. Zeke is doing great and no one else seems sick at the moment so I really can't complain.
