Our New Pony - Truman

This cute little thing is our new pony. He is Kelly's, Carleigh's and my Christmas present for the next, oh...10 years??!!

His show name is "The Truman Show", and we call him Truman. He is a 10 year old, 14.1 hand, beautiful paint pony. We got him Friday night so we are taking the next couple of weeks to get more familiar with him. He is a little fast and we are going to have to learn how to work together, but it seems like he is going to work out. We are really excited about getting him! He came from Naples, Florida from Holly Homewood who worked with him and trained him for over a year. Thanks Holly (and Angela)! I'm sure there will be lots more posts about him in the future.

Vandy Girl - Happy 14th Birthday!

Our sweet baby Vandy Girl has a birthday on October 12th. She is definitely showing signs of her age, but she is still the sweetest little puppy to me!

Carleigh is already practicing her birthday singing skills.

Road Trip! Tina Turner Concert in Chicago!

My favorite Tina Song....
You Better Be Good To Me!! That's how its gotta be now...Cause I don't have no use for what you loosely call the truth, you better be good to me!!!

For all you youngsters out there, even though Tina is about 100 years old, she DOES NOT look it and she actually put on a pretty good concert! I'm not a huge Tina fan, but I do really like some of her songs. My college girl friends and I wore out the above song singing it to our boyfriends in college. And yes, believe it or not, Greg was the one I was singing it to!

My sister, Angela, and I took our girls (Ashley, Kelly and Carleigh) to the concert. They were by far the youngest people there, but they did enjoy the concert and the trip to Chicago.

Some of you may be more familiar with "Rolling on the River" - (song name is actually "Proud Mary") and "What's Love Got to Do With It?". And, for those that didn't know it, Tina grew up outside of Brownsville in Nutbush. She even wrote a song about it called Nutbush City Limits. Rumor has it that Oprah, Stedman, and Tom Cruise were at the Chicago concert on Friday - however, we were there on Saturday.
