Crazy, busy week...

Well, it has been busy around here at the ol' Burns residence! Monday Maddie and I took dinner to one of my dear friends Maggie, her husband and their sweet new baby girl, Shelby. Maddie fell in love with Shelby and has been praying for her every day. When Maddie prays for Shelby she always asks that Shelby won't have to be on oxygen. Why? I guess because Fletcher is on oxygen and she sure doesn't want Shelby to have to be on it! Pretty sweet.

On Thursday Maddie and I went to the Orr Family Farm for the Kindergarten field trip. It was awfully cold and windy, but we still had a lot of fun. We rode a train, went on a hayride, played on the totally cool playground, made butter and ate it on a cracker!

First you gotta shake it...

Then you gotta put it on a cracker and eat it! Umm good cracker!

Today was my niece Kylie's 15th birthday. She had a party at the gym where she takes cheer leading. She came to our house before the party and I did her hair and a little bit of make-up. She looked so pretty and was so excited to be pampered! Since the party was at the gym the kids were able to jump on the trampoline and do some tumbling on the mats. Maddie had a blast!

This is all that was left of Maddie within the first two minutes of walking in to the gym!

She is gonna sleep good tonight!

Fletcher is doing really well this week. We found out last week that one of his medications for bone pain had been discontinued while he was in the hospital in January. Maybe that's why he's been so grumpy lately! Anyway, he's been on it for the last four days and we can tell a big difference in his attitude. He's happy again! We are so grateful for happy days! Today was a beautiful day so we went for a walk outside! Fletcher wasn't a big fan of the great outdoors so we came back in and walked the halls like we normally do. He had a lot of fun.

Isn't he precious?

Maddie's prayer made me mist up. How heartbreaking in a super sweet kind of way! I am SO GLAD to hear you may have found the culprit in Fletcher feeling yucky!
Don't you love Orr? I'm so sad that the kids are getting a little too old for it now. Man, I hate time right now. I just want to bottle those moments. Faith is doiing her first land run this Friday. I'm so excited!
