Finally here-Lot of photos

Shimmer with her new home made jacket.  Megan Stevens, a special friend, and owner of two Cornerstone Cardis, is very talented.  She created the design herself and gave me one for each of the old gals to use in the new colder climate.  And boy have they come in handy!

 This is Megan(left) and Sheila.  Sheila graciously allowed us a half way stop over at her place.  We were able to walk, graze and water the horses  Walk the dogs.  And get ourselves pottied and water too.  Megan arranged the contact and of course God had it all planned.

 Megan and David with Annie and Scoobie.
 When we arrived it was late.  I put all 9 dogs in the laundry room and they are wondering..."hey, what's going on here?"
 The first morning out at the new place.  It is cold compared to what they are used to.  I put a turn out blanket on Scoobie since he has less coat than Annie.
 The coat came off and all seems like adjustment is pretty easy.
Holiday table in the new house!
 Woo hoo, new place lots of fun!
 Samuel and Hannah on our way out to hike to the creek,
 Stopped to take a shot of our horse trailer.  Now done with its big job for the move, we covered it to protect from the weather.  As it turned out, it was none too soon!
 Hannah at the creek with her walking stick.

Samuel behind us and still up on the rise above the creek.

 Samuel looking down the creek.
 Christmas morning!  Samuel's prayers were answered!  He had never seen or experienced snow and really wanted to on Christmas.  Right on target at 7 am it started and by 7:30 it was coming down.  Snowman on the hood of my truck : )
 First time in snow for them too!
 Out the front door.  This was only the first half or third of what we got.
 Hannah was quick to get the tree out and at least have it up without ornaments so we could enjoy that much.

This is the first sunset living in our new house.  It is taken from the back yard looking out over the hay field
David looking into the barn while I was mucking stalls.  He and Samuel left to go back to FL. this morning.  they will come to visit for Spring break.  I will sure miss them.  David thinks he will be able to commit to retirement about March,,,maybe April...maybe May.  Pray for me and Hannah up here without him.  We do have SUPER neighbors though who we can count on if needed. 

That was a good bunch of catching up!  I hope you enjoyed it!
