Okay, so Madison's birthday was a big success! Except for being on the coldest day of the year as of then, everyone had a great time and enjoyed themselves!
Mark had the tractor and trailer all set up and gave several hay rides, and he also had a nice fire in the fire ring to keep everyone warm as well as assist in the cooking of the hotdogs and marshmallows for smores!

Nate took this picture of Mark and I together . . .I thought it turned out nice!

Hayride Riders . . .LOL

Madison's Horseshoe cake . . .and we had cupcakes too! Plus, Mark made some amazing chili and it was ALL gone (He made 2 crock pots full!)

Here is Madison with Julie and Tess . . .Madison LOVES animals so she was really happy that Julie brought Tess!

I made 'Ho-bo' bags for all the kids that had glo sticks, candy, pencils and erasers in them . . .they got a big kick out of those!!!

Time to get serious again . . .

Okay, it is the time of year when I decide to get serious about blogging, losing weight and exercising . . . I will let you know how it all turns out. I am going to start blogging here on a regular basis instead of xanga (but you can go there to read previous posts). I will make this more personal as time goes by, but make sure and check out the other blogs that I read because there are a TON of people that are WAY more interesting than I am!!
