Happy Birthday Courtney

It's your birthday today. You'd be 30 finally, just like Lindsay and I.

Memories come flooding in...
Snoop Dogg blasting in The Flying Pickle with the windows down and the heater cranked in the dead of winter
Viva La Towel Band! and tan Wranglers
Getting lost on the back roads while laughing and talking about EVERYTHING from sweethearts to secrets, horses to hair styles
Spinning broadies in the fresh gravel at McGregors and then STRESSING about getting caught!
The Bach-lo-ette party....AH YES, that was classic
Wearing candy necklie
My birthday, the one where you made it SO SPECIAL by making a huge dinner, a funfetti birthday cake, and potato salad just like I like it...JUST FOR ME
Bunny Ears in triplicate
The love you had for your Coug hoody (hey, the one in this picture) and how completely upset you were when it was thread bare, see thru, and you couldnt wear it anymore (even tho you did)
The pink store in Spokane, the inappropriate one, and mentally scarring a very pregnant Lindsay with certain specialty items , heehee
Chubby bunny- I wasnt there for the original but I loved every minute of the dramatic reenactments
Your signature dance move
Goldie Honda
PINK BOOTS!!! and matching Pink horseshoes for Milly
Walking you to your car in the dark to check for strangers in your backseat
Gangsta Names and catch phrases
Hand signals that made NO SENSE for the words you sticky rice...and a half scoop of caramel.

...The list goes on and on, and differs for every life you touched. I miss you every single day!

Toes Toes Toes

Her name is Cinders, she is a show girl....
Er, no, she is a paint mare!
She's got new toes!!! Don't they look grand! You can't see?
See! Believe me, these toes are a huge improvement over the before...which we have no proof of. SORRY!

New toes make you capable of running fast and leaping tall buildings! You didn't know that either? You don't say!
New toes also make your momma super excited to ride!!!
First ride ~ went pretty well :)

Marley and Skipper

Ah, steeds, steeds, what steeds!
Has the whirlwind a home in your manes?
Is there a sensitive ear, alert as a flame, in your every fiber?

Turkey Lurkey

Errrrk Erk Errkkkk      Chick Vvvvvmmmmmmmm

That, my friends, is what a male turkey's mating call sounds like. least our white turkeys sounded like that when I'd walk in the pen
so that's what I assume this tom sounds like...

WILD TURKEYS! Who knew they lived in the draw below our house!

What is it?

I you?

Say Cheese!

Win and Remi have become quite dashing big boys! They don't walk or trot~ THEY DASH! EVERYWHERE!

Where thy nose leads thy brother follows.

Last night we spent a few hours out in the big world doing some cleanup, transplanting lilacs and mentally planning this years garden additions. Remi discovered the goats and Win discovered the garden swing. It was all very exciting, as can be expected in the big world.

Lucky for me they both sat still for just a moment and said "CHEESE"! So smiley, so sweet.

Sometimes you pick your friends, sometimes they pick you.

I've missed blogging! Let's play a game.

Cinders working out in her school clothes.
A customer rode thier horse to my work and "parked" it right outside!
Xander get's a giddyup out of Unkl Jasin.
Cliff carries his dog, DM, on a horse back ride. She was to tired to continue. Sweet, isn't it!
And my horsey love, Skipper.

So tell me, which one is not quite like the others?
