Smokey and his Tree

Tonight the kids asked Mike to tell them the story about when we got married. He is in big trouble because he said (and I QUOTE), "I'll tell you an even better story!" He then proceeded to tell them a story about when he was little and took an old Christmas tree to "Smokey" (his grandpa's pony) who quickly gobbled off each and every pine needle leaving nothing but some bare Christmas tree sticks. And, the kids DID think this was a better story. They loved hearing about Smokey and that delicious Christmas tree. I aint got nothin' against old Smokey, but I might have preferred the marriage story.

I'm confused, my blog says that your blog was last updated 4 days ago. This post date is listed as Dec. 2 (today) I'm just trying to figure out if you're having a baby or not!

Sar, sometimes I think it just takes a little for the reader programs to pick up a new post and I did this one late . . . but no, sigh, no baby. Is two days early too much to ask??

The marriage story is just that, you know, they just wanted to hear about our wedding or some such (and I was curious to hear Mike's version as well), BUT who could want to hear that when Smokey was gobbling up pine needles?

This post made for a good laugh! Thanks, I needed that. I'd like to hear the marriage story too, by the way - even though I must have heard remnants of it before.
