Matthew Dodd celebrated his 8th birthday with a Halloween themed party and a haunted woods hayride on Saturday night, October 29th. He had a large crowd of friends and family to join in the fun, food, and activities. His grandmother, Joyce Dodd, reports, “The decorations were fun and festive, with lots of ghosts, goblins, and spooky music. The adults had as much or more fun than the kids.”
Jaidyn Joslin and her cousin, Elisabeth Yager, celebrated their 8th birthdays together, at Elisabeth’s home, on Saturday, October 15th. They were both born on 10-9-8 (October 9th, 2008). Guests enjoyed lots of fun and games and treats!
