Thanksgiving/Christmas pictures

ok my side of the family celebrated Christmas and Thanksgiving all on the same day! Why? Because my parents are leaving for warm weather and going to Az so they wouldn't be here for Christmas. So here is some pictures!
Armchair Caddy for my father loom knitted with Lion Brand wool-ease Thick and Quick. Pattern designed by Bethany Dailey.

I made this for my sister, Rachel, and its Lion Brand Yarn's pattern called Bee-Bopper Purse. It was loom knitted with thick and quick also.

Samantha with our dog Star.

Jared with the Fish Pillow I loom knitted him and its out of the 1st book Isela Phillips wrote and is deigned by her. He Loved the pillow! Jared is also 5 months old now.

He was really whipping it around! LOL

Sammy tired from no nap holding the pillow for me so I could get a close up. Kinda think she wanted one also:-)

Jared with My Aunt Sue

Sammy broke open a pinata that was part of my parents retirement party. They thought it would be a fun surprise and she had a blast.

Jared is going to try Green Beans for the first time!

Goes in and stays in!! He likes them!!!

all dressed up for the holiday with a turkey bib

Sammy having Uncle Nate time.

Speckles wanted on my lap really bad and well he jumped up and fell asleep on me. He gets frustrated with all the looming and him not getting the attention he normally gets. So he thought I would quit looming if he put his head through the loom part and hat in process and he fell asleep! LOL~~ I didn't stop just turned the loom slow and he still slept but, got frustrated once I was taking pics from the flash but, he stayed there for a long time head in the loom sleeping. LMAO

Hope you all enjoyed these photo's!! Have to go take our Christmas Card photo of the girls since we got snow last night!!

Mach 1 Spinning Wheel

This is the compaired pics from Ashford's Spinning wheel's bobbin to the Mach 1 spinning wheel's bobbin. As you can see there is a LARGE difference. Ashfords is way smaller! Mach 1's bobbin can hold anywhere from 8 oz of fiber to so far others have found 10oz of fiber!! This wheel can spin lace weight to VERY chunky art yarn! Why you might ask? Because it has an open orifice!! So no hang ups here! I will edit and post more specific stuff soon. I have to finish how I want it to be written.

More pics of the horses

Nothis was not a set up and they are not playing. They are sleeping! LMAO~~ Yep our cats are brothers and very close. LOL~~ Hubby took these pictures.

my FAVORITE picture of TORI that I have gotten so far. I'm calling it my perfect picture. I have one of Dream also. So far hubby is not sure what one of Abby he likes best so far of us having her. LOL~~ Tori has her wintefr and is very fuzzy. She loves mommy also and comes right to the fence when Im outside. AllI have to say is where are my babies and they come running. LOL~~Tori is showing her true self more and more.

Abby and Dream don't havethei winter coat of fur in so we bought blankets for them. Tori has one also but, won't have to blanket her until it gets down into the teens. However its to cold (30's and below) here and dream and Abby do need the blankets. Abby's is blue but, Dream's is realy Purple. Tori's is Red. This is a perfect shot of the together showing off the blankets!!

See they are coming! LOL~~ Tori beat them by a mile. LOL

First snow

Well here is the SNOW. It had flurried some for a couple of days but, nothing much to take pictures of. Well today it came down and is actually staying on the ground. We let the horses out and Dream and Abby have NEVER been in snow before so I decided to take pictures of this event. When it first started coming down they ran around like mad but, have calmed down now. I'm sure Tori told them all about it as she has lived in MN for her life before we got her.

Abby Rose running up to me when I was talking to her.

Dream and Tori looking at me like "Why are we out here?" LOL~~ Poor girls. the barn door IS open if they wanted to go inside.

First pic I took and they knew I was outside. All 3 girls respond to me very well and love it when I'm around.

Last pic I took. I was going for Speckles but, Star decided to get into the pic and chase him! LOL~~ Turned into a great pic.

Called Star's name and she barreled after me. LOL

Hope you all enjoyed!!!
