Last Friday my sister-in-law hosted her annual cookie swap. So Thursday evening, after riding, I had to make 3 dozen ginger snaps. It was a late evening, but who doesn't enjoy baking cookies? Plus I get to lick all the bowls and spoons since I live alone. Perks.
We had unbelievable weather over the weekend. Temps were in the mid 60's and that meant lots of pony time. I even finally rode Romey! Not only that, but the horses were able to graze for a bit too! And Jampy had a shower! Unheard of in December normally. Here are too many photos for your viewing pleasure:
Sunday, I got to come along on a trip to the "North Pole" with my brother and his family! Near where we all live is an old fashioned steam train. It was actually used in one of the Indiana Jones movies. During December they run the Polar Express which is a magical train that gets from CT to the North Pole and back in about 90 minutes. It's an adorable attraction. The kids wear their warmest jammies, some elves serve cocoa and cookies to all the passengers, and we get to meet Santa and Mrs Claus! Santa called my mom and I big girls... I'm not sure how to take that. But we all had a great time, especially my niece!
