December was wild, as usual. It also brought some seriously cold weather, which didn't last but totally killed most of my plants. And found me in the pasture on some random mornings with a hammer. Cows gotta drink water, right?

It also brought Cher's first buckle!

And we spent a whooooole lotta time working on this guy's hair.

And this photo basically made me laugh ALL MONTH LONG.

We spent some time out at Paw Paw's house playing in the hay...

...and taking pics of Clyde who was sold toward the end of the month to a very nice man who introduced him to eight girlfriends upon arrival at his new home.

We also snuggled some baby dairy cows...


...and fed tiny goats.

Santa came!!! And brought a tablet...

...and a bicycle.

He also brought Taylor a giant wheelbarrow for the barn and she was pretty thrilled about it, truth be told.

Nana and Boppy also came to exchange presents and brought this little one some dress up clothes. Tell me she's not adorable.

We spent a lot of time hanging around the house over the holidays because we knew majors' season would begin in January and be constant for 3.5 months. And it was wild. And crazy. And ushered in a really difficult period for my older girl. But that's another story for another time.

And - plot spoiler - yes, she survived. :-)
