What a beautiful Christmas!
On Christmas Eve, my family celebrated with an old-fashioned sleigh ride. What tremendous fun it was!
This old sleigh was how we used to feed all of our livestock when I was growing up. We spent many days cutting the twine around the rectangular bales of hay, then knocking them off in chunks as the horses moved forward. Then all the cows would come running. We would always tie a few small sleds behind for a ride, and we had great fun pushing each other off into the snow.
I now realize how unique & special it was to grow up how/where I did. You’ll see what I mean.
This is the driveway leading to my parent’s home….cars lined up clear to the road. I love the wreath that hangs on the shed next to the house during Christmas! It’s so picturesque.
That bike would be my brother’s “fat bike”? I think that’s what he calls it. Yes, it’s for riding in the snow.
Goley felt the need to scratch his nose.
The Paint sending a message to Goley with her lips….”we’ve got a lot to pull, buddy!”
Did I mention I have eight other siblings? And we’re all married now? Lots of us have kids.
You’re not wondering why there’s so many people now, are you.
The horses anticipating their cue to go…….
I love this pic. I got the horses and the shed with the wreath.
The view as we start our ride.
I ran ahead to snap the action.
