Our First Snow of the Season...

Our First Snow...

We just returned from our family vacation in Oregon during the Thanksgiving holiday. We had a great visit! Mom and Kaylee were able to celebrate their birthday's together on November 13th. Kaylee turned 1 year old and Mom turned...(well I better not say!)

We just got home late Sunday evening and we woke up today to our first snow of the year! It sure is pretty and the kids we so happy! They were already outside playing and throwing snowballs!

Here are some more pictures of our home. The outside is almost completely finished...still have some staining to do on the window trim and a few other little things. All of our interior framing is done and now Steve (our contractor) is working on electrical and plumbing. It is so exciting! He had some much done after we were gone for two weeks!

Snow makes whiteness where it falls,
The bushes look like popcorn balls.
The places where I always play,
Look like somewhere else today.

Meghann, Friends, and Horses

Meghann at Rough Diamond Ranch on Marble

The following pictures were taken today over at the Melzer's Rough Diamond Ranch here on Marble where we live. The day started at 10 a.m. while Meghann and 3 of her close friends and their horses all met at the Melzer's ranch. They spent the morning working together with their horses being trained by Steve Melzer. Steve is a Parelli level 3 certified trainer. By 3 p.m. they were all ready to go out for a trail ride. This was a dream come true for Meghann.

Tonight all 4 of the girls get to have a sleepover and watch "horse movies" and make caramel apples and other "treats!" (The Melzer's asked if it was okay to have a little "sugar" tonight!). Then tomorrow morning Meghann will ride home.

Happy Trails to you...
