I wanted to update everyone that has been sending prayers and well wishes our way. Ethan is still doing great.....THANK GOD! We see no signs or symptoms and we are so thankful for that. We've really been having a lot of fun, fitting all sorts of things into our days. Ethan got his new horse, Questions, on Thursday when he got home from school. Ethan received his horse, Sonador, last Sept from Make-a-wish, but he died the Monday before Christmas and we promised we would get Ethan a new horse. It just so happened that my uncle out in Colorado went to the vet that very day and they were getting ready to retire their daughter's horse that was a show horse and did all sorts of English riding and jumping. The horse's name is Questions because of the marking on her nose. My Dad and a couple other guys drove 15 hours to pick up Questions last week and arrived home with her on Wed night around 12:30. The first thing I thought of when I saw her was "All our Questions have been answered!"
Friday we just hung out around our house and put together a new jungle gym....a little early for my Ava girl's birthday coming up. Then on Sat we went on a horse back ride. That was fun. Ethan had a great time. We even got to go to a friends house on Sat to play Wii and Ethan loved it. Sunday though was a real highlight! My uncle got us a cart to put on our minature burrow. It is sooo cute. My husband and my dad hooked it up yesterday. The harness and cart didn't come with any instructions, so it was quite a site watching my dad and my husband figure it all out. I'm an engineer, my husband is an engineer and my dad is too, so the joke was "How many engineers does it take to hook a cart up to a little ass?" It was really funny.
Here's a couple pictures of our new horse and cart. I have a funny story to share from Ethan. On Sat while we were horse back riding, Ethan was asking his Daddy all sorts of questions about how horses grow so fast and how big they get. My husband told him that maybe sometime we could get Dusty bred so she could have a little baby. That was about all that was said and when we got back home and I was taking Ethan inside for lunch, he asked me, " Mommy, after lunch can we take some bread out for Dusty so she can have babies?" He was quite serious about the whole thing!
Thanks so much for all the thoughtful cards, notes, and prayers. I appreciate each and everyone of them. I may be taking a break from stamping, but we are still living life to the fullest around here. Hope you enjoy my new pictures as much as I do.
