Have a Merry Merry!


Merry Christmas! Here’s our cowgirls’ Christmas tree, full of sentimental ornaments. I’ve still got the one that my first grade teacher, Mrs. Foy, made me about a hundred years ago. And a mitten that my husband made in kindergarten. And the wedding bell off the cake from my grandparents’ fiftieth wedding anniversary. Of course, there’s chili pepper lights, cactus and horse lights, lots and lots of horse ornaments. The one in this photo is Siete, made by my daughter when she was eight years old.

Hope your day is merry and bright! Love you guys!

Hey Victoria....what a sweet tree. I think I have one of those cowboy boots! Hope you and your family are having a great day. Tomorrow it is back to normal.
Best.

Victoria,
What a wonderful collection of treasures for your Christmas tree.

Since this is now Christmas night ... I'm thinking you are in the barn tucking Silk and Siete into bed.

Hope your Christmas was jolly!

Our six rescued cats of various sizes, ages and curiosities precludes putting up Christmas trees. I love seeing others! You can usually tell what matters most....

Merry Christmas to you too, Victoria! I hope you and yours are warm and cozy with cookies and tea! And I'm sure the mares are dry, well-fed, and happy in their stalls!

I have one of those trees with ornaments collected over the years. It's so much fun to look at each and remember.

Hope you had a Merry Christmas! Give those ponies of yours a Christmas pat for me.

Merry Christmas Victoria!

So many people have sentimental ornaments on their trees, I see it in american movies all the time. But I don't have a single one on my tree. =(
