Out With the Old, In with the New

It has been a while since we have posted, so I thought I would catch everyone up. We had a wonderful holiday season. Christmas Eve, Leigh and I baked cookies for our neighbors, and enjoyed our day with our mother. She arrived around noon, and we had such a wonderful day with her. We watched movies, and made sausage balls, and just laughed and enjoyed our time together. Christmas morning, we got up and took care of the horses and started cooking. Unfortunately, our brother Robbie, his wife Sarah and there precious little boy, Thomas Wyatt were all sick so they didn’t get to attend Christmas this year. We made the best of it, and cooked a great meal. We had ham, cheese garlic grits, mashed potatoes, barley casserole, green beans, macaroni and cheese, cranberry sauce, and rolls! It was an amazing meal. To top it off, we had my mothers homemade Jam Cake for dessert, along with many other goodies. Our friend Hilori joined us for lunch, and my mothers boyfriend Bob came as well. We all enjoyed our Christmas together.

Leigh and I gave ourselves a Christmas gift of having a water line put in at the barn!! It was finished this week, and it was the best gift EVER!! I cant explain how nice it is to have water at the barn, and not have to carry water buckets! It has been so nice, and makes our time at the barn much easier.

For New Years Eve, Leigh and I went to our friends Whitney and Cavans. We have spent many NYE’s together in the past, and always have a wonderful time. They cooked an amazing seafood spread and we just ate, and drank, and enjoyed our time together. It was a great way to bring in the new year!!

The new year is always a time of reflection and I don’t believe in resolutions, but I think it is a wonderful time to set goals! We have many goals set for this year and we are both so excited to see them accomplished!

Happy New Year Everyone!

Here are some pics from our New Year.

I enjoyed my Christmas with you so much and spending the night just hanging out and catching up was great. I always enjoy Christmas at the farm. Leigh's ham was wonderful and Anne's barley casserole was just great, too. Whitney and Cavan sure outdid themselves on that New Year's spread. Happy New Year to both my girls!
