"I don't want to touch it!"

Emree is a scaredy cat. She does not like animals, not one bit. Well, she loves the zoo, but pets are a no go. My parents have a dog and we are constantly being informed that Tanna is in the backyard, but it is always followed up by..."and I don't want to touch it." The boys can not help, but tease her and ask her if she wants to pet the dog over and over again. I am not sure I blame her for making that point very clear.

We asked Emree if she wanted to go horse back riding this week and we all knew getting her on a horse would be a challenge. She was so excited. She talked about it a day in advanced and begged for me to take her until the time actually came. Of course she cried. Of course Tyler had to force her onto the horse. And of course she yelled over and over, "I don't want to touch it!" She did eventually calm down and enjoy her self a little bit. Then when she got off there was no way you were getting her back on. She refers back to the horses fondly. She tells us how fun it was and how daddy and her chased the butterfly, but she always lets us know that she still doesn't want to touch it.

Was it worth it? I am not sure, but our pictures are sure cute!

Four Years!

Four Years ago I married the man of my dreams. Every day is not a fairy tale, but we are living happily ever after. We often look back at that time when we met each other as the best days of our lives. I think it was/is so magical because you meet someone and you both love each other so much that you want to spend eternity together. You can not imagine one moment in your life with out that person by your side. Then you get married and we chuckle because sometimes you feel stuck with them. As the Huey Lewis song proclaims, Ty-"I'm happy to be stuck with you". Four years ago he swept me off my feet and yesterday I was super grateful he swept the floor! Four years ago he was my knight in shining armor and this whole week I am thankful he stayed up at night with Emree. Four years ago I was so excited to fall asleep every night in his arms and now we are still excited for that because our baby is the worst sleeper ever :). Not much has changed and yet so much has. I love him more at this very moment then I did yesterday and so much more than I could have imagined loving him four year ago! Happy Anniversary to the best friend a girl could ever ask for. I love you.
