Peter and Ed

Pete continues to do well with his riding lessons. He has developed a special bond with the horse named ED. Ed was abandoned by his owners, so Paula and her family took him in. Ed has lots of "issues", and doesn't get along with all the people who stop by or try to work with him. For some reason, Paula says that ED responds to Peter better than he responds to most. Each time he goes to the stables, Peter takes over and prepares Ed totally for riding. Here is Peter and Ed last night.

Scrappy Time at last!!!

My friend Paula and I have been getting together this summer so that we can both make progress with our scrapbooking. She has been doing lots of layouts, and getting a lot done. I did a mini-album, some layouts, and some card tutorials. Today, I pulled out some CHLOE paper and embellishments that I purchased a while ago and created this 2 pager.

24 years ago

OK, lots of you are asking to see the original wedding photo, now that I have posted a pic of us on our 24th anniversary. Sooooo, I told you we were in diapers! We were just out of college and moving to Florida, far away from most family. As you can see from the photo, we are really happy. Lots has gone on in the past 24 years and we have taken most of it in stride.
I have heard lots of comments about how much of a milestone long marriages are these days. Gary and I take comfort that we have made it so far. However, I do want to say that my feelings about leaving a marriage has changed in the past few years. I do feel that it is better to leave a bad marriage than it is to stay in it. I also feel that people have more than one soul-mate. After a long and happy marriage, it is possible to find love again. There are quite a few people that we know who thought they would not marry, find that special someone, and enjoy matrimony on towards the sunset of their lives.
Whatever is happening in your life, I wish you happiness!!!

Mushu update

 

Peter continues to fawn over his beloved bearded dragon. Mushu is growing nicely, and has shed twice in the past week. This is a sign that he is doing well so we understand. We have learned that baby beardies can grow up to an inch per week. Today we found out that our beardies love hibiscus flowers!

The Happy Couple

 


OK...here is a photo of Gary and I yesterday as we celebrated our 24th anniversary. It is rare that we get to take a photo of just the 2 of us, without some red-head in the background making bunny ears or funny faces! Ben took this one when Pete was outside. Hope you had a great day too!!!!
