My sweet Maddie turned 7 last week. It was a week of celebration as her Papa had a birthday, as did her cousin, Gabe. Maddison is really into horses this year and wanted a horse cake. As part of her birthday gift, Aunt Bea and Uncle Scott got her riding lessons. The first such lesson will happen this week. She is very excited about learning to ride. On Saturday, she had a girls sleep over to celebrate. 7 little girls spent the night with her and did crafts, made pizza and generally reeked chaos! She seemed to love the party, her mother, however, was completely worn out by the experience.
On a different note, I have been negligent about blogging lately. I have been fighting a cold for 2 weeks now, and feel worn down by the cold and the busy activities of the season. I am hoping to shake this congestion soon and get back to "normal".
