My Mother of Creation

This is my mom standing in her yard earlier today. She had Kidney Cancer a while back and it has recently been detected in her lungs. She told me she about it this past Christmas. I still don't know if it has sunk all the way into my head yet. The doctors in Tampa estimate she has a year to live. One of the greatest gifts I was ever given was the family my mom created - a brother, two sisters, three nieces, two nephews and two great nieces.

My Sister's Daughters' Daughters

These are my great nieces. Reba is chasing me on her horse and Michelle is chasing her. It's like a parade without the fire truck and PAL gum.

So This Man Walks Into a Stall ...

I think this is my sister's favorite horse, Cheyenne. She just had a special stall built for her away from the barn so she can be checked conveniently by veterinarians when she becomes pregnant.
