Happy (Belated) Birthday Kendall
I can't believe I haven't got around to blogging about Kendall's birthday. We celebrated her birthday on the correct day and I'm usually good about getting the blogging for holidays out but I really dropped the ball on this one. Sorry Kendall! She had a good birthday. I'm really big on making birthdays a family affair and having good ole down home fun. I don't have a thing in the world against birthday parties but right now my kids just love to hang out with mom, dad, and sisters to celebrate and that works for me. She decided she wanted a homemade birthday cake in the shape of a six. I know it looks like a nine in the picture. Whoops! She also wanted a pinata. Even though we live on 5 acres Byron and I decided that tying it up to the swing on the deck would be the best thing. As you can see from the picture it is tied with an ELECTRICAL CORD! That was completely Byron's doing. I love Kendall's face in the picture when she's hitting it. I imagine quite a few boyfriends will get that face in the future. I've already received that face when she's been mad at me so it really came as no surprise. We started off whacking the pinata with a plastic baton which broke so we switched over to a broom handle. She still didn't get it completely open (I think those things are made of concrete) so I had to rip it apart Incredible Hulk style. Candy flew all over the deck and we're still finding pieces between the wood slats. It's little sweet reminders of Kendall's party.
