My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

hooligans and answers


Don't forget to play Thesaurus Thursday!! "Rules" can be found on my sidebar if you're new.

Stephanie asked "What is it about little boys and poop?"
I don't know, but this boy's been fascinated for years now!

Diana asked "is that grandma in your banner pic? did i miss a post that explained who she is?"
I don't think I ever did tell about that pic. It is Subvet's mom. By the way, she fell and broke her arm a week or so ago and either the fall or the meds seem to have made her more loopy than usual....prayers are appreciated (she's 80)

Mrs 4444 asked about word verification. I don't know what it is that makes some folks' wv show up right below the comment box and others as a separate pop up to deal with....but, here's my settings as requested:
comments - show
who can comment - anyone **I think this effects it**
comment form placement - popup window **I think this changes it too**
comment moderation - never (y'all have too much fun chatting when I'm not around!)
show word verification for comments - yes
show profile images on comments - no (for the simple reason I get tired of always clicking on okay to show unsecure!!)

regarding the horse therapy ellen said "The therapists look very positive!"
They are!!! This is the 7th year this husband/wife team have run Walk On! You can tell with every interaction how much they love working with the kids and the horses. And they've been blessed to witness miracles.

PS. have I mentioned how JEALOUS I am??? I wanna learn to ride the horsey too!! :-(

Mrs 4444 said "Also, doesn't Reba look fantastic? I know her cover is airbrushed and all, but still...she's gorgeous!"
yupper. on youtube there are numerous videos taken during her Two Worlds Two Voices tour with Kelly Clarkson....Reba looks every bit as good as Kelly up there!! Hope someone can say that about me when I'm 54!!

Stephanie D. said "Hey, I don't see a cast or anything on Gator-Boy's arm! Is it all well now?"
When we went to the orthopedist a week after the accident they didn't see a break anymore and he didn't complain of pain when she pushed on the elbow here and there so she said he was healed. It took him a few days to start using that arm again, we guess it was a mite stiff from it's week in a cast. But all's well now.

On the matching cape caper....the sticker chart seemed to really help and last week Sonshine was able to get a PRIZE for all the stickers he earned...his prize is that visor that Gator's showing off in his pic at the top of this post. His 30 day ARD is this friday...all prayers are accepted gratefully.

Love the pics...very cute kids!!!! It's great to get their "silliness" on film, then show it to them years later and hear them say, "That's not me!" Have a grand day!!! Cathy

You kids are all gorgeous. Could I have a ball with these guys.

Glad Sonshine got his riding lesson and that he won the visor too. That will encourage him at school.

Thanks for commenting on my post. Brandon is the one with high functioning autism and he did very good. I was very pleased as he can sometimes be super sensitive. He's come a long way.

Hope you enjoy your week. I really look forward to reading your posts.
