Melanie had a gr8 time turning 8! Her teacher asked how many parties she was having, and I had to pause for a moment to count. (1) There was the birthday party at Mamaw and Grandpa's in Indiana when we went to the Bus and Outreach Convention. (2) Grampy and Grammy traveled from WV the weekend before her birthday. (3) Esther made snickerdoodle cookies for a party at school. (4) We had our own family birthday party with CiCi's pizza and a cat cake. (5) Last Sunday we had all the families from church over to our house who had a birthday in the month of March. It seems that we had a couple parties that were early, a couple on time, and one that was l8.
