Easter weekend and Clayton's birthday

We went to my Mom and Dad's house for Easter. Both of my sisters and their families came too, so it was great fun for the kids. Clayton and Gabe have birthdays in April, so my Mom bought a cake for them. My Mom bought balloon launchers from Vision Forum for Clayton and Gabe. All of the kids had a blast shooting water balloons with the launchers. They go really far. Unfortunately Carrington got hit really hard in the neck with one of them, but she's much better now. I'll know next time not to let them aim at each other from close range. McKenzie, my niece, brought her baby goat with her. She has to feed her about every 4 hours with a bottle. She's really cute. Clayton loves animals, so he was excited to get to feed her.
Clayton's birthday was yesterday. He turned 7! We had a fun day. Carrington and I decorated his door yesterday morning while he was still sleeping. When he woke up, he was so excited. I don't make my kids do school on their birthday. I had an appointment with a local farmer to pick up 25 lbs. of grass-fed beef. The farmer was really nice. He let Carrington and Clayton gather eggs and feed the chickens. Then we went over and saw his pig and cows.
Clayton picked Moe's for supper. We love Moe's! After supper we went to Wal-Mart and let him pick out a new bike. He also got a new ant farm and a laser light. I included 2 pictures of Clayton when he was a baby. Wasn't he fat and cute in the picture in the stroller?! He was such a beautiful baby. We are so thankful for his life. I had a really hard time when I was pregnant with him. I will try to post the story later about that. I love having a little boy. He is so much fun to have in our family and makes me laugh all the time. Happy birthday to my little man!


  1. Happy Birthday Clayton! That is the cutest picture of him in the stroller, he was so chubby!= ) I like the Easter pictures- we had lots of fun!!


  2. Happy Seventh birthday Clayton! I remember the day you was born, I had been at choir practice and I came home and Mama was going to the hospital be at the delivery. I made her promise that she wouldn't stay gone very long. She told me that he had been born the next morning. Wow, seven years ago. Weird!
    Happy Birthday!
