The Greatest Reaction EVER!

So sorry for the delay! I told yall I have to wait on husband to help me do things like this! After Carlie's sweet response, I wanted to show yall the video instead of just telling you the surprise. So here it is. I wrote her surprise in her birthday card which she found in the basket of her new bike. Turn your volume up as she reads out loud, or you might miss it! And don't you just love her wild, red, bed-head? :) My heart is so full!

That was the greatest reaction ever. I am so happy for Carlie. I am loving the wild hair. Her and Maggie should get together with that crazy curly wake-up hair. Laine almost started crying right along with you. She going to look so cute in those pink boots. Give her a big hug and kiss for me!
Love you guys
Carlie, Annabelle says have a great time horse back riding and Happy Birthday!!

oh gosh Laine, does anything bring your more joy than your babies happiness? How precious!
(and she is a super reader!)
Happy Birthday to your darling red head beauty...

Aaron and Erica said...

How exciting!!! Carlie (and all of your children) are just so precious. I hope she has a wonderful time horseback riding. Her reaction was WAY better than the one we got when I told our boys we were going to Disney World. We had a great time though...I'll post some picture's soon.

It's such a shame she wasn't happy about her surprise......

I have a couple of riding helmets I could send to you if you'd like. My kids don't ride any more. (I think we still have them!) Let me know if you'd like them and I'll send them.


Jodi said...

Oh that was wonderful! =)
I'm not sure I've ever seen a better reaction to a surprise before! Can I be there when she gets proposed to? Please?
And my goodness Miss Carlie, you read so very well for a seven year old!

Oh my gosh, that was so priceless!! What a great little cowgirl! We got 2 horses for Christms so anytime you want to come ride just give us a call!! That was just too sweet!

How precious! You definitely made her day--and caught it on tape! I hope she has a wonderful time at her lesson. Something tells me she will. :)

wareaglefam said...

That was incredible! Congratulations, Carlie Q! I can't wait to see you riding that horse in that awesome outfit. I knew that your surprise wasn't a puppy! Your mom is a little nutty, but she isn't insane!! Ha...just kidding, my sweet Laine!

Hope for Lucy said...

Sweet as SUGAR!!! Her little face was lit up big, thanks for sharing her joy. What a truly joyful child!
I will need to show my Hannah, she shares the same love of horses and she is amost 17 now. Trust me with that kind of excitement on Carlie, she may never grow out of it!


who accidentally deleted her blog!!!

Mike and Barb said...

Happy Birthday, Carlie!
That was a great video! Riding horses was always my childhood dream, too - and although it never happened, at least I live in Cowboy country now :-)))

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAR CAR!!!! My goodness I cannot believe you're seven years old already!!! and what an AMAZING surprise for you! That's almost as good as my reaction to the Michael Buble tickets I got for my birthday!! I'm so excited for you, Carlie!! Much love and happy birthday!!

p.s. when you get done with those boots, can i borrow them?

Jana said...

Laine, you have GOT to submit that to America's Funniest Home Videos. Girl, I would definitely vote that one of the best ever. My goodness, with all your winnings, you may be able to fund another adoption:)!!

Aimee said...

That was THE MOST precious video. Can there be anything better than that? Thank you for sharing it, it made my heart so happy!

My sweet quiet Carlie??? What a reaction. Do you think she was surprised? I remember my 6th birthday (I know, it is a wonder that anyone can remember that far back, but I do) I got a brown suede fringed cowgirl outfit and a white can can (yes, back in the dark ages, that is what they called them) and I promptly put the can can on UNDER my cowgirl outfit. Now, what a sight was that??? Carlie will look MUCH cuter in her outfit than I did. I bet she looked pretty cool sitting on that horse. How was the first lesson? I totally agree, you need to send a copy of that video to America's funniest videos. You could probably win the $100,000 prize, yep, I see a couple more babies in that future and what a way to begin your 127 mission. AWESOME. We need to make a sucker date, the "Sucker Club" is in need of a Ferrill Fix. Love ya. Ethel.

That was the sweetest thing ever! I love her little face when she realizes what it really says! Oh Laine..she is adorable!

Lisa said...

OMG! How precious is she. I am sitting here crying just watching her reaction. I don't think you could have given her a more perfect gift. I hope she has a blast. Can't wait to hear about her riding lessons.
