Monday noon found us at Chuckie Cheese. With a coupon in hand, we purchased a large pizza, soft drinks, and 100 tokens - every one of which was used in the subsequent hours! Of course the children won the tickets which were redeemed for points which were cashed in for some GREAT prizes - a grasshopper, tiny rubber gun, a small puzzle, some small barrettes, etc.
T actually rode the horse more than A, but all of our pictures of him on the horse turned out blurred! These grandparents think Chuckie Cheese ROCKS!

But we are thinking about you and planning to see you soon!
We thank God for you. You were our very FIRST granddaughter.
We rejoiced the day you were born and you have brought us much joy ever since.
We are thankful that you are learning to be obedient to your father and mother.
We are thankful for the way you share your toys with your brother and sister.
We are thankful that you have a healthy body and a good mind.
We are praying that you will always choose Jesus and His will.
I hope you'll dance to the Happy Birthday song today!
ALL of you! Up and dance now!

You can click on the link above to go to the web site and click on any chapter in the left side bar to read it. *She stresses "keeping your children with you" in order to teach them obedience. See especially: The Basics and Before, Starting Early, and Starting Late - all listed in the left side bar at the above site. I think she has some extremely valuable ideas here!

Wednesday I visited my friend. They raise a few chickens. I got to go out with her to watch her feed and water them and gather these eggs from their "nests"! I thought the hens were very beautiful. There was also a plain black one and a white one. Most were the gold color seen in the background. It was a fun experience.
