This weekend Aaron and I went to Albuquerque to help Mike & Debra get their house ready for Samantha. We left the girls at the ranch in Quemado and continued on our way. We got to Abq at 11:30pm Friday night. All day Saturday we worked on cleaning, organizing, and painting. We also had a some cuddle time with our precious niece, Samantha. That's right!!! She's home! She's doubled in size-- now weighing 5 pounds and 17 inches long. She's so, so, so precious.
At the request of the parents, they don't want to have pics of their child splattered across the Internet so, sorry, no pictures.
Tracey, Kylee, and Krysten had a blast at the ranch. All Kylee could talk about for days was getting to ride Freddie (the horse). They worked hard helping Papa and Grama on Saturday and got lots of riding time in. Right before we left, Tracey snuck off and returned riding bareback on Freddie. Of course Kylee wanted a ride. And surprisingly enough Krysten too. Usually she's too afraid of the horses to get near, much less touch them. So these are pictures of Krysten's first time on a horse.
