We spent all weekend celebrating Kenna's 8th birthday. Friday she got to wear a new birthday outfit to school and we made cupcakes to take to her class. Saturday we went to Hendricks and spent the day with the Olsens. It was so much fun! The kids played and I got to spend the time talking with Pam. There was no fighting or arguing or crying. It was great! We ate pizza and then had cupcakes and ice cream. Then then Maddi, Makenna and I got to open presents. There was a lot of sadness when we had to leave but we get to go back this weekend so we are looking forward to that:) Sunday Makenna opened presents before church. Olivia was a BIG help! We had our primary program in church that day. The kids did a great job. That afternoon Makenna got to talk to lots of people on the phone and we had macaroni and cheese for supper followed by more cupcakes and ice cream. She had her interview with the Bishop and now we get to set a date for her baptism. She is really exited for that. Makenna has proved to be a challenge over the years, but despite the difficulties we have also been able to see her develop a kind heart full of tenderness and love. Her capabilities to love are huge and we hope that she continues to develop in that way. She is very smart and loves to learn. We are so proud of her in so many ways. I hope that she can listen to the prompting of the spirit and follow her heart so she can have her life filled with happiness and contentment. She has so much to offer. I hope she finds confidence in herself so she can live life to its fullest. We love her so much and can't imagine life without her!
