Molly & Ned

When my cousins & I were little, my Grandma got us all matching dolls to play with. The boys got boy dolls & the girls got girl dolls. Well, Ned (one of the boy dolls) has been at Grandma & Grandpa's house since he was outgrown many years ago. With Molly around, he got to make a return from the basement & what fun it was! Molly was just about the same size as Ned & it was love at first sight! They rode the trike together...

 They danced together...

They sure had a good time. Molly even tucked Ned in for a nap a couple times-covering him up with her blankie and offering him her binky. I think Molly has a new boyfriend!

First Horseback Ride

Molly's first horseback ride was on my favorite old horse, Doc. Doc was my show horse back in high school and he's also a great ranch horse. We've had MANY good times together & I would trust him with anything-even my little baby!! Although Doc is showing his age, he still gave Molly a nice trip around the corral. Molly, the little cowgirl she is, did not want to get off his back. She had so much fun and after he stopped she kept bouncing on his back trying to get him to go. If Doc's last ride is Molly's first, there would be no better ending.

We're Back!

We're back from Montana after a 3 week vacation over Christmas. Well, we've been back for awhile but I haven't gotten a chance to do much on the computer. First of all, it seemed like it took forever just to get unpacked and our house back in order after being gone for that long. On top of that, Molly has now decided she does not need a nap anymore and has also been getting up extra early. This mean my spare time (blog time) has gone to pretty much zero. I have TONS of pictures from the trip and will try to get to posting them soon. In the meantime, here's a little video that shows just one of Molly's many Christmas presents. We (and especially Molly) had a very good Christmas this year!
