I can't believe Gracie is 4 years old! Her birthday was Sunday so on Saturday we had a little (very little, as in invite one friend...thanks Riley for coming!) party for her. We have some friends who have horses so we took her over there to ride them. Both Gracie and Brynlee LOVE horses but I honestly thought they would be scared to get on them when they saw how big they were...boy was I wrong! They both couldn't get enough of the horses. Brynlee kept telling Jake she wanted to go faster so he finally let the horse run...again I thought for sure she would hate that and would be done riding forever. Wrong again, I believe her response after running with the horse was "Go faster... I want to do it by myself!" Gracie didn't mind going fast either...looks like I've got a couple cowgirls on my hands! Thanks Sorensens for letting have our own personal pony rides!
Here is Gracie on her actual birthday Sunday morning.
Here are a few things I want to remember about Gracie:
*Besides horses she loves cars, trucks and tractors
*She often asks to play "puter games on PDS kids" (computer games on PBS kids)
*when we play outside she always finds a patch of dirt or a pile of rocks to dig in...even when there are swings and trampolines around
*She has a very kind heart, I've never seen her hit anyone and she always wants everyone around her to be happy never crying
*She's a great hummer...she only has to her a song once or twice before she's able to hum it without missing a note
*She likes to Clap...not like after seeing a performance or anything, just at random moments she enjoys inserting a clap. I don't think she even knows she is doing it...it's just a part of her
*She is very easy to please and takes joy in the simple pleasures of life...the other day I told her if she took a nap she could eat some pretzles outside to which she replied (after a clap of course) in the most thrilled tone " Oh Wow Mom, Thanks!"
Happy Birthday Gracie Girl We Love You!
