2015 in Photos

2015 was a big year!  In order to catch up to present time, here are the highlights...

We moved in during the month of April 2015.

Horse stalls on the right, oxen stalls on the left!

He asked and I said YES!  (That's Sparky's old horse shoe, of course!)
We were married on July 4, 2015.



Our cake had us with my son, plus Dreamy, Snappy, Andy & Jack!


And then we welcomed this little one in September 2015...
He was a good reason not to ride or show horses in 2015!  ;-)
My boys! 
See, I told you 2015 was quite the year!  LOL!
