Here are the pictures of the Cowboy Birthday Party. We had the delightful addition of a little "Cowpony" brought by our friend Donna. Her name is Daisy. She was the highlight. All the little Cowboys got to ride her (with some assistance from Nathan and Benjamin). We had a fire in the stove outside, hoping for a marshmellow roast, and bales of hay for seats, but alas it became far too windy to continue in that mode; the day started out fairly sunny, but turned very cold and windy, so our delightful outside decorations were abandoned for the inside ordinary; and cowboy hats were exchanged with Beanies but all in all we had a rootin tootin time, and I think Elon enjoyed being the head Ranch-hand for the day.
Donna introduces Daisy to all. Himilce and boys and Steve (with Marie and Ezra in background)
Elon wispers to Grandpa asking "is this is the horse that rolled over on you?"
All the little guys gather around to give Daisy some "lovin"
From left to right... Donna, Zane, me, Asher, Elon (behind) Steve and in upper right hand corner, little Ezra. Aren't Asher and Zane cute?
Ezra and Mommy
From left to right... Zane, Elon, Asher, Donna and of course Daisy.
Elizabeth and Little Winston are watching.
Donna teaches each little boy to brush and take care of Daisy.
Winston is doing a good job... with a little help from Daddy.
Elon looks quite relaxed as if he has been doing this for years.
Asher is a little less at ease.
Since Zane was raised with a horse Great Dane, he is quite at home.
Cute even when crying.
"Hey Daisy, thanks for the ride".
Blowing out candles, and opening presents are always fun even for a tired bunch of cowboys.
Have a great week everyone
