Merry Christmas!

LUKE 2:1-20
1 And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed.
2.(And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)
3. And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.
4. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; ( because he was of the house and lineage of David:)
5. To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great with child.
6.And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
7. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
8. And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10. And the angel said unto then, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14. Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
15. And it came to pass, ans the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
16. And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.
17. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child.
18. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.
19. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
20. And the shepherds returned, glorifing and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

7 Month Pic

I know this is really weird because I look bigger in the 6 month than I do in the 7 month, but that's just the way they came out.

6 Month Pic

I'll try to get a 7 month one up here when I can - before much longer I'm going to have to be posting an 8 month one!

Just Havin' Fun

Bethany lost her hat and Cash is checking it out!

Photoshoot Fun

Have you ever tried riding sidesaddle in a roping saddle?
Astride is much better! :-)

Looks a little different on Western horse, but it's still cool!

Hughstons Cow Camp Rodeo

These last few got out of order, so just bear with me...
The bulls were moving fast enough that I didn't really get any good pictures.
This one was part Brahman, but he didn't seem too bad.

This is when it get dangerous - the clowns can't get between the bull and the thrown rider if the bull stays that close to the chute!

Saddle bronc rider getting thrown (that happened to most of them!)

Calf tying - those guys are fast! A lot of them had 16-17 second times!

Okay, this one should be right after the one before...

Calf roping - this looks like a lot of fun!

Another saddle bronc rider...

This was the first bronc and he was GORGEOUS!!!!!
After the rodeo, they let all the broncs out in the arena just loose and free. Tony immediately turned to me and said "No, you can't have one."!

My Adorable Niece!

Isn't she sweet?

It was really cool when I was holding her like this because I could feel my baby kicking against her!

Happy mom!

I can't wait - 5 months seems like soooo long!

Lots of Horse Pix

Asking him to jump...

He decides to go for it...

Nice one!

Bethany learning how to jump! If the picture wasn't quite so dark, you'd see that there is nothing but air between her and the horse - sure made for a cool pic though!

Essie was getting a little ornery so I straightened her out.

Much nicer! :-)

Bethany practicing her bareback riding... it's tougher than some of you would think!

Working on getting Cash to spin his hindquarters.


I like this one.

You can see in this one how she's asking him to move over with her leg.

It took a bit to get him to cooperate

Seems like Cash is becoming Bethany's horse! Not that she minds at all:-)

A few pix from our ride along the river...

I'm hoping to get fall and winter pix of the same spot - if I remember...

Should I edit out the ears?
