We celebrated New Year's Eve with a sleigh ride, games, food, and good company! Dixie, my horse trainer(sounds official doesn't it?)and her family invited our family to join them for New Year's Eve and it was one of the funnest.
Ryan Olsen brought his team of Percheron, which are classified as work horses, for our sleigh ride.
Yah, it was as cold as it looks. After three rides my finger tips were hurting. I would not have made a good pioneer at all.
I love this picture! To think that we have neighbors with animals like this is still so cool to me after 2 1/2 years!
See the cattle in the background? We went through their field where Neal had to dodge their frozen cow pies which sometimes weren't frozen solid.
Christmas day Lou Lou's family came over and we went to Waterton to do some tobogganing. It was pretty nice weather despite this cold looking picture. The air was calm and at least the temperature wasn't -20. It was more like -10. It's all relative when you live where it snows.

And Lou Lou's family. Her oldest son is living on Victoria Island working at a resort in Tofino so he wasn't able to be home for Christmas.
We have had a nice holiday season that really started before Thanksgiving. It's been so nice to have family and friends visit, but the best part is having Lou Lou live less that an hour from me. Ok, her family too. You know what I mean!
