NYE work blues

Who else feels like the only ones lucky enough to work today? What's crabby day to have to work is what I think! Oh well, I do get to leave early and am off tomorrow!
Can't wait to get home and join everyone at the ranch to bring in the new year! Glad we got some moisture on the ground for fireworks! Doesn't make it quite as dangerous!
This weekend was enjoyable, as most are! I must admit I am getting very spoiled from being home every weekend! I love it! Home with my boys and horse are the best! Saturday started with morning chores to prepare for the group, In which Popcorn helped.

Morning ride in the brisk cold. Someone was quite frisky.
Disregard awkward face

Quick walk with Popcorn and Rock! Rocky was a by standard in Popcorns takeoff and kick up and got kicked LOL luckily Popcorn is only 4 months and not strong! Rock is in guard now haha

And a quick workout with Rock and Husband! ;)

The annual ranch New Years group then began arriving! We always have a lot of fun with this group! With cold weather we have been inside a lot. No bacci ball tournament this year! We did however play poker, in which I lost $5 dang!
The big winner!
Well happy last day of 2012! Everyone be safe and have a Happy New Year!! Can't wait to start mew new workouts and eating regimen come Friday!:) we are going to make the old game room our new workout area that I can do insanity and weights! Can't wait!
Well back to work I go to finish out the year!

Time flies

Cannot Believe another year is wrapping up again. 2012 might have been the best year yet! I was reminded of how totally blessed I am to have a loving, hard working husband who supports me 100%, to have a family who I am so incredibly closed to and have a blast when we are together, friends that I will have for a lifetime and are totally awesome, my sweet Rocky boy and an awesome new pony. 

2012 was quite the year Husband started his new job, my name changed, I got to go on an awesome beach vacay with my new husband, I enjoyed weddings and showers with long time friends, We bought our first car, We welcomed a new pony to the family, Missy Mae, and said goodbye to my sweet Coup. As I look back, I cannot be more thankful for all the lessons and hardships along the way in 2012 and cannot wait to see what 2013 holds. Here is a look back at my 2012

First Christmas as a Mrs.

Well I am finally caught up on rest after a wonderful Christmas spent with family! Husband and I hosted Christmas this year at our place! It was a big year - our first one as Mr. and Mrs. , first one in our new home (well we have been in our home almost a year now, but first christmas), and our first year to host all the family! 

I would say the over all weekend was a success! We had a blast getting to see everyone! I must admit, Christmas felt weird being on a Tuesday though and everyone having to head back home on Christmas day. :( We sure did have a busy weekend, or 4 days I should say! I rode Missy Mae, we went on walks,  played a ton of kinect, ate well, blessed with gifts and laughs, rode 4-wheelers, Took family photos, and drove around looking at deer! 

Husband got one of his Christmas gifts early, Popcorn, a mini donkey! He was so excited and has been anticipating him since he found out he was getting him in November. Popcorn is 4 months old. My parents brought him down Saturday in the back of the truck in a crate! They said they got pictures taken at the gas station and were even offered money for him! Luckily, they did not take the offer and made it to the ranch with him ;) He is so funny! Loves people and doesn't mind the dogs, minus Sampson. It must be his ears, or his bark!

Here is our Christmas in a few photos! Hope everyone enjoyed their time with family and remembered the real reason for the season, our savior Jesus Christ.
