New Years Day

The kids all woke up bright and early on the first day of 2009. Brittan made a wonderful breakfast and we hung out and relaxed and ate. Perfect day if you ask me. The kids loved playing outside with the baby goats. There were two little babies that were born in the middle of December and they were so much fun to cuddle.

Piper was really hoping to ride one of the horses from Brittan's parents ranch (their property connects to B&B's) and about mid day she got her wish. Brittan's mom came over with two horses for the kids to visit with. Piper was in heaven--Dax wanted NOTHING to do with the horses at all. I was so proud of how comfortable Piper was and that she jumped on the horse bareback with no qualms. Matt took these cute pictures of the three Mitchell girls and I love them!

Then Campbell showed us her awesome riding skills. I was so proud of her! She rode Zipper bareback all by herself. She was able to turn him and control him really well.

And she did a perfect dismount.

I loved seeing the kids outside playing--running all over the place, playing with all the animals and just being kids. It sure is nice having country cousins to visit! Thanks again Auntie Brittan, Uncle Brian, Campbell, Anna Mae and Barrett!!
