Easter 2017

What a busy and wonderful week of Easter we had!
We started Good Friday off w/ school and then after school we all went to give Hershey special treats and a good brushing and massage 'cause it was her birthday! She's now 15! :) Happy Bday Hershey!

 Rhett also got to have some fun w/ PopPop...

Our babies looked soo cute Easter morning at church. We cannot believe how grown they are becoming. We decided to take pics of them w/ Sprinkles, the kids bunny.

We were involved in our church Easter production, His Story. It was weeks/months of preparation and well worth the work! If ONE life was touched, which I KNOW there was, then it was worth all of the hard work and long hours.

Sooo many talented people came together to make these 2 nights possible and to portray the birth, life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Paint the Future

What an amazing weekend!
We all traveled to Waco, Texas for a big APHA horse show.  We had never been to this show and expected it to be "Texas-sized" and it was! It was an amazing 3 day show (we only showed Saturday & Sunday) and had the best of the best there! Shelby was the youngest but MANY years and held her own! She was Top 5 in all her classes but one (which I think she should've been 3rd in but it is what it is.... politics do play a part in everything IMO) and she won a $200 APHA scholarship to use towards any college/university she chooses at graduation!

We also had some down-time and we got to go to Magnolia Farms/The Silos!! It was sooo awesome and a great family environment!

Such an amazing, memorable weekend w/ our family! Who would've thought 2 years ago we would be on this journey?! Shelby began riding and took her first lesson 2 years ago April 9th.
