Friday, January 19


Today our vacuum cleaner belt broke. Well, it didn't break all the way, just a tear. It was enough that we knew we needed another one. We took it off so that Glen could measure it and go to Lowe's and get another one just like it. Meanwhile, Jude was watching the movie Spirit. You know the one with the horses. Cute movie.

Anyway, Jude loves that movie and is usually engrossed in it, but today he left the room while it was on. We saw him go upstairs, but we weren't sure why. In a minute he comes down with his stick horse he got for Christmas and the old vacuum belt. He puts the vacuum belt over the stick of the horse to make a "new reign" for the horse. Isn't that so creative? The horse already has a reign, but you know a vacuum belt makes a whole lot more authentic looking one. I just could not get over how he took the time to go all the way upstairs, get his horse and think to make that. I know, he's my baby, but it was just clever for my little 2 1/2 year old. Don't ya think?


  • That IS cute. Dylan has always done that..only w/ his football stuff. Boys are so funny like that. That is creative though! I love the vacuum belt part...too funny!! He is so cute. =)

  • Sounds like he is going to be an engineer!

    side note... glad you don't have to buy a new vacuum, but I recently got a Dyson and LOVE it!! Totally worth the money!

    Oh and thank you for your sweet compliment about my hair and who I look like. You boosted my ego for the week!
