postheadericon Cowboy Up!

We had a fun time out at the ranch today.  After having a lively breakfast, horseback riding was the scheduled event.  The star of course was Rowan!

Our favorite little nephew dude dragged his parents and his Grandma up to visit Aunty Julie, Uncle Mike and Papa Bill.  He was sporting his brand new cowboy boots and told them he just had to go on the long drive to see us.  We weren’t fooled though, he really came to see the horses, the chickens and Adolph the dog!  We’re all aware of our place in line 🙂  I think the tractor we call “Greenie” has also moved ahead of us..

Rowan was all dressed up for the occasion

He’s a natural farmer!

It was a fun way to spend a sunny morning with loved ones who don’t live close enough to see as much as we’d like.  We’re already looking forward to Ro’s next foray into cowboying.  Look out Hailey!

postheadericon Green Aussie Sheep

I am horrible at keeping track of things. I won this fabulous prize package destined for my nephew at Halloween and am just now getting the post done about it as I get ready to wrap his gifts. Please forgive me Sally. I was tickled pink to have been drawn for this little board book “Where is the Green Sheep” and coordinating book bag. My nephew and his father are very into sheep and the little dude is learning the love of books. Isn’t it darling? Sally generously offered to embroider nephew’s name on his bag for me. I think he’ll love it for Christmas. Thank you so much Sally!


Since winning, I’ve also found nephew a little sheep ornament and a piggy bank that I am painting green to match the one in the book. I love finding presents for the loved ones in our lives, especially when I can keep it centered on a theme. Every year I get or make everyone an ornament of some kind that I put their names and the year on.
Be sure to check out Sally’s blog, here. Lots of crafty Aussie goodness and a great sense of humor on the side.
