I WANT A PONY

How many of you asked your parents for a pony for Christmas? I did, I remember telling my parents if they bought me a pony/horse that I would never ask for anything else ever again! I think this was probably shortly after I went horseback riding for a field trip (I think I was 7?) Well, I guess this year Isabella will probably be asking us for one. And I doubt she'll be happy with a My Little Pony toy! Today, we went to our church bazaar for some barbecue and right down the road from our church a farm was having "Farm Day" (I told you our church was in the country) Just about everytime we go to church we see horses and Isabella is constantly saying "I want to ride a horse" (Of course, she also informed me a few weeks ago that she was a COWBOY!) When we passed by the farm we noticed that they were giving rides, so we decided to stop and see if they would let her ride. They did and boy was she excited. We just happened to have her wear her cowgirl hat today too. And she did amazingly well. I thought she would be afraid when the horse started moving, but she grabbed on to the saddle and just smiled! The lady there said "Uh-oh Daddy you're going to have to buy a horse now!" But Isabella is just going to have to be happy with her little pink rocking horse for now, then maybe some day she can take lessons --- who knows. Enjoy the slide show, I think you can either watch it or click on the pictures below it to see them individually. I wish I had her wear little boots today it would have been cuter in the pictures. (I still can't copy and paste the slide show into the post, has anyone else figured this out?!)

First of all, thanks for the slide show idea. I have been wanting to do one for a while, but I actually used the link on your blog to learn how.

Second, you just have it posted directly to your blog from the site where you make it. Once that's done, go onto Blogger dashboard, click "edit posts", choose the one that has the slideshow on it, go to the "html" view, and finally, add whatever text and photos you want included with the slideshow. Good luck!

Oh my goodness! I bet she had a blast! I love the "back view" of her on the horse. That little tiny body on the big huge horse looks hilarious! She is practically in a split riding that thing!-lol. She is so cute! I'm lovin the cowgirl hat, too! How perfect!

She looks so adorable on the horse. I bet she had an absolute blast. I wish that I would have gotten pictures of Casey the first time she rode a horse. She asked for one for a while, but when we told her she couldn't keep it in the garage she kinda dropped the issue. :)

She does look like such a peanut on that huge horse! I bet she's still talking about it.
I just watched your girls' video. Such a blessing. Thanks for sharing your blessings with us.

Or you could get her THIS for Christmas: http://www.hasbro.com/furreal/default.cfm?linkID=has_specialoffer_butterscotch&page=news&newsID=54D35BD3-D56F-E112-44907B77052676AE

We saw it at Target this weekend-- it comes with a carrot and grooming brush and everyone in the toy aisle wanted it :)

Kelly, I saw that at Target as well - I couldn't believe how huge that thing was. Thankfully, Isabella wasn't with me or she would have wanted to sit on it for sure! :)
