Merry Christmas From Deep in the Heart of the Rockies

Just wanted to share our winter wonderland and wish everyone Merry Christmas!!!
St. Catherine's Chapel at Camp St. Malo

Sorry, Mr. Daddy.  These two burros are as close as we could find to elk.
Sophie is rolling her eyes at Bill....
From Jesse and I
Washoe said, "I'll shake it, but I won't wear it!"  As soon as this shot was taken, he took it from my hand and threw it on the ground.

Ranger liked the idea of that silly elf hat even less....
  Estes, on the other hand, was more than happy to model.  Isn't she stunning in green?
 And, not to be left out, Mr. Eli, who came back and asked to have the hat - again.
Bill had to wear his antlers at a rakish angle so Ranger would quit snorting at them.

  1. Bill... you seem to elicit that "eye rolling" thing with more than one animal... it must be a gift!

    Grinning about Ranger snorting at your rack. Silly thing!

    And those pictures are priceless! (And the scenery is just gorgeous)

    Wishing you the merriest Christmas. Hug Tel for me!

  2. Merry Christmas to you too, and thanks for the shot of the burros, they may not have the antler mass but are "O" so cute in their own way....LOL I'm sure that Sophie would of given up her set for the cause though....*snicker*

    just saying....

    Hope you guys are having a happy holidays and a Very MERRY CHRISTMAS.

  3. P.S. and I don't know if I should be jealous or concerned with Rach admiring your rack??????

    What do you think Juanita????

    Just saying....

  4. HOLY CRAP!! BILL HAS A RACK!! (Oh Rachel. Dear dear Rachel... I'll never be able to look at you in the same light.... lol)

    Dear Husband says Sophie will GET YOU for that picture!!!

    MERRY CHRISTMAS from our crazy corner of the world!!

  5. Thanks to all; we did have a great Christmas - 21 of us around 3 tables in my mother's living room. ALL of the kids and grandkids, SO's and their kids at one meal. The food was good, too.

    And a special thanks to people like Mama Fargo, who were on patrol so the rest of us could enjoy a safe day!

    Love to all,

  6. That's about how big our family gathering was this year!

    That chapel is gorgeous--do they have Christmas services there--what a heavenly location.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you guys!

  7. How on earth did I become the butt of this post???

    As always, your comments section remains entertaining. At my expense this time, but I'll wait for my moment.

    Any of y'all remember the post about Mr. Daddy's rack???

  8. I'm trying to stay out of this. A horse snorting at my rack isn't going to make for a PG blog...


  9. Awesome picture story! Love it! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

  10. Sounds to me like maybe too much egg nog going around but I suppose if you all have a Merry Christmas, it's probably ok! LOL


I had to turn verification back on. Ten "spams" an hour is making me crazy...
