Thunder Hoof

We got a new pony!! We have been looking for one for months now. We finally found him. He is a cute little thing. My children LOVE him. The children named him Thunder Hoof. We are spending a lot of time these days riding him,brushing him, feeding him, petting him and picking out his itty bitty hooves. It's great fun. I'm praying that he will be a blessing to our family for many years to come. If I had a camera I would post a pic. One of these days (like the day that I quit using my money for ponies and start using it for a camera) I'll get a camera and post a pic. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words. :)

Last night the dog started barking in the middle of the night and Londyn said, "Quincy is barking but there is no one here. I don't know what he's talking about."

Tonight she fell out of her chair while she was eating goldfish crackers and she said, "I'm okay." Quincy was watching her the whole time and she said, "I fink (think) Quincy thinks it was sad. He looks BERRY sad. He looks too much sad."

I love the precious things my children say. They are such a blessing to me.

Tonight I wanted to go for a walk. I figured that at 10:30 it might be endurable. It wasn't. It was HOT. H-O-T. At 10:55 I came back into the house dripping with sweat. Lovely. I only made it 25 minutes. Maybe I'm just a sissy. Maybe I'm getting old. My birthday is in just 4 days. Maybe 31 year old people just can't take the heat. Geez. I'm going to try again tomorrow night. Maybe I will be able to go 30 minutes! LOL I think I need a treadmill for my birthday.... :)

As good as Disney

Tonight we had a wonderful night. We went to Wal-Mart where I bought a new book for myself and Heath bought himself his first ever pair of steel toed work boots. Then we headed over to Target to let the kids each pick out a toy. We don't do this often so it's a big deal. Luke got a new Magic Treehouse book, Levi got a hippo Webkinz, and Londyn got a doll stroller. Then, to really top off the night, we all went and had supper at What-a-Burger. We have never eaten there. Seriously.

I sent Levi to go get napkins. I told him to get about 10. When he came back he said, "I accidently got one more than 10."

Also I saw Londyn wisper something in Heath's ear. Then she crawled under the table. Then I saw her little hand put her chocolate chip cookie on the seat of the booth beside me. She knows how I feel about chocolate chip cookies. Especially ones that have been laid on public booths. ;) And this was her very sweet gift to me.

I told the children to make sure that they were full because they weren't getting any snack tonight when they got home. (It was 10:30 when we got there.) Luke said, "How could we after this feast?!

I don't know why tonight felt perfect and special...but it did. And I'm not the only one who thought so. Levi said as we were leaving, "Tonight was as good as Disney." :)
