Learn Your Lesson?

 Nova has something to learn.
 If you insist on picking on someone bigger than you...
 ...pestering them...
 ...or annoying them...
 ...or bugging them...
 ...something bad is bound to happen.
Hercules fatting on Nova...I think she's sorry now.
Learn your lesson yet, Nova?

An Old Horse

Stoney will never admit it, but it's challenging being an old horse. There's the constant eating, little kids always wanting a ride or people wanting to give him treats and scratches on the nose, needy Dancer always hanging around, and the frequent need for naps. It's a rough life for sure.
Old man down!
Somehow he manages.

Meaning of the Day

Happy Valentine's Day!
It's the day after Valentine's Day, I know, but I have a good reason, I promise.
Keeping with tradition, Jack surprised everyone on Valentine's Day morning with their very own potted plant, in honor of the girls' middle names.
Looks like Kate, doesn't it?
After dropping off the girls at school, we went in for the last ultrasound to check out the next baby girl and were thrilled that everything is right on track--head down, good heartbeat, not too big, not too small but just right.

Then, I promptly went home and spent the rest of the day being sick to my stomach and feeling miserable.

Thankfully, Kate took good care of Henry, Henry took a nice, long nap, the girls took care of themselves and the animals once the bus dropped them off, and Jack came to the rescue, bringing home dinner and getting everyone fed. Then, he whipped out a more modest chocolate party than last year that I passed on but the girls heartily partook. I barely made it to nine before zonking out.
He is a hugger but beware, he's also a biter!
It's amazing what a solid eight or nine hours of sleep will do. I woke up, feeling like a million bucks and getting caught up on everything from grocery shopping to cleaning to laundry and enjoyed my share of the chocolate. Though Valentine's Day wasn't exactly ideal, if people taking care of you when you're at your lowest, neediest self isn't love, then I don't know what is. So, my holiday, though crummy, really was the epitomic meaning of the day.

Hope you had a fantastic Valentine's Day!
