HAPPY (belated) BIRTHDAY TO ASHTON!!!
Ashton turned six on the 15th and I can hardly believe it. She fared pretty well in the gift department and we had a joint birthday party with her little cousin Scott who turned one on the 13th. The festivities spilled over to the next day when we went to Olive Garden (Ashton’s favorite restaurant) with Aunt Megan. Since Valentines Day was the day before I sent rice krispie treats instead of cupcakes for her birthday treat at school. Today I asked her how her class liked them and she told me they didn’t have them because she forgot to tell her teacher that she had brought a snack. So much for that.
My sister had a baby girl on Monday and now my parent’s grandchild count is even again, seven girls and seven boys. They named her Lacey Sharon Pendleton and she is a cutie. She also makes the fourth birthday of this week in my family, my dad’s birthday is on the 17th.
Dalin has been sick for the past couple of days. I thought we were all over our illnesses, but I guess it was just time to catch a new strain of something. The poor kid has a fever and he’s so stuffed up it’s hard for him sleep because he can’t breath. He’s still a sweet boy and he only gets really fussy at night because he wants to sleep. Hopefully he’ll be over it soon.
Kaylee went to a birthday party today and she came home a rockstar. It was at a store in the mall and they did their hair and makeup and gave them a microphone headset. They got to take home the makeup and pick a few things from the store; it looked like a lot of fun. We were watching the cousins when she came home so she shared her newfound knowledge and did their makeup too. My uncle is running for city council again and he passed out his campaign shirts today so all the kids were matching and they decided it was the look they needed to form a band. We even made a music video so look for the rock-and-roll-girls-band, sponsored by Andy Hafen for council, to come to a town near you soon.
