I can't believe Ally turned ten years old recently! Where does the time go? It seems like it was yesterday that we celebrated her 1st birthday and now she is ten.
Looking back at the last ten years I can definitely say that my daughter has taught me so much about life and has made me the person I am today. She has brought me more happiness than I ever thought imaginable. She has touched so many lives in our community by just being the sweet, caring and amazing girl she is.She is making the world a better place one person at a time.

One of Ally's favorite movies is Little House On The Prairie. She also loves the Little House On The Prairie book series. We have worked on some Literature Units with the book series during school , and she watches the show all the time. So we decided to have a Little House On The Prairie Birthday Party. It was so much fun and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
Her Pappy Neal made the kids a covered wagon to ride in....they enjoyed it so much!!
All the children were given 10 pennies to spend at the Mercantile...decisions, decisions, decisions!
The children made homemade butter to eat with their homemade bread...yummy!
Making homemade butter was so much fun. All the kids butter turned out great!
One activity the kids really enjoyed at the party was washing clothes in the wash tub with the old time wash board and then hanging them on the clothes line.
They all got a history lesson on washing clothes during the prairie days.
