Sunday Snaphot: {a Christmas gift/thank you letter}

This past Christmas my husband's brother and sister came up with a very special and unique gift for Shea and Avery.....

A family ride in a horse drawn wagon!

Sounds like fun, doesn't it?

What was really great about this gift is that we all benefited from it~!

It was a great opportunity for us to hang out together and create some amazing memories....

Dear Auntie Ann, Uncle Dave, Aunt Lori, and Uncle Tom,

Our Christmas present was so much fun!  Thank you!  It is a day we will always remember.

Like feeding the goats, it was a blast.  :)

The wagon ride was completely enjoyable.  The sun was shining, the ride through the forest was so pretty, and the laughter and chit chat were comforting.

And, the horses, oh my!

How we loved the horses!!!  

They were so sweet and gentle.  They were so big!  We would love some of our own.  (Mom says that will only happen in our dreams.)

Afterwards in the warm and cozy lodge, we loved drinking hot chocolate and munching on cookies and apples.  It was the perfect way to end our morning together.

We definitely enjoyed mingling with our cousins....

and getting in some snuggle time with the uncles.

Thank you Auntie Ann and Uncle Dave....

 Aunt Lori and Uncle Tommy....

for a simply marvelous and spectacular Christmas present!

It was one of our best days ever!

We love you all so much,

Shea and Avery
