I can't not believe I have not made a post since NOVEMBER 17th! I new it had been a while, but oh my gosh!
Life has been a bit hectic lately.
Between Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.....I've hardly had the chance to slow down!
So, I figured I'd take a few minutes to bring everyone up to speed.
The day before Thanksgiving was spent at the beach with my Husband's Grandparents. Good food!!
We then had Thanksgiving dinner at our house. YES, our house. My FIRST Thanksgiving dinner.....ever. AND....there were RAVE reviews. I'd never cooked a Turkey before, EVER. So, I was a bit worried. I mean, the TURKEY is it, the end all and be all of Thanksgiving meal and if you mess up the Turkey, there goes dinner.
I found a kick ass recipe in...well..I can't find it online but will bring it to work and post it here for everyone to enjoy.
The turkey was a huge success, the entire meal was a hit. We were surrounded by good friends and good food, it was nice.....we were just missing a very good friend this year.
Moving right along it seemed like there was no time between Christmas and new years.
I took the Calhoun County 4-H Horse Judging Team, and the Victoria County 4-H Horse Judging Team to a Judging Contest in Rosenberg, Texas on 12/12/09. The kiddos had a great time! It was the first outing for some.......8th or 10th for others....good time had by all, with some of the kiddos bringing home ribbons :)
Then it was Christmas time.....had a few days off work...that was nice!
Christmas eve spent with friends....Christmas day spent with in-law's....day after Christmas spent @ NELSON TRAINING CENTER riding my HORSE CASPER!! YES, I got to ride! YAY!
Cas is awesome! This is a whole post of it's own....I won't spoil it here.
New Year's.....again....a couple more days off work...YAY!
New Year's eve was spent just me and my hubby and the critters. We'd invited friends over...who declined due to 'amature night'.....and some other friends just plain didn't show up...
Now we are well into January and......COLD FRONT!
It's supposed to be MUCHO CHILLY here for the next few days, just a few days, then WARM again......here's the forecast....
Ohhhh and my GOOD FRIEND JEN got accepted to be on JULIE GOODNIGHT!! HOW FREAKIN AWESOME IS THAT!!!
