NO way are these babies dumb. Blonde yes, but maybe it comes from a bottle, I admit to highlights myself……Yesterday they found a tiny little gap in the fence and had a hayday exploring the neighbor’s 800 acre ranch. THANKS for the workout involved in getting you back, turds!    (We love you, just kidding…)

Hi Santa

Hi Santa

This is a great family place to go on the last Saturday of the month. There were SO many nice people selling jewelry, T-shirts,toys and just about everything you could imagine. The live music ranged from mariachis and country to rock. It was all great. We bought a CD for Peyton and he loves it. They had a ski slope with snow and bungy jumping (no thanks!) santa-and-dana I talked to Santa and told him that I wanted a Longhorn for Christmas. He said “Ho, ho, Ho I just rode here on one this morning!  I am giving Rudolf and the other reindeer a chance to rest up for Christmas!” Sure enough, BINGO the cutest sweetest Longhorn in the world was there!!! Here are some of the pictures of the festivities.

 I could tell that Bingo remembered me……..Longhorns are so smart! We saw Bingo and his buddy Tator Tot in the Floresville Peanut Festival Parade in October and here they were again! I missed seeing Santa Claus riding into town, that must have been SO cool!!!!  Greg gave me a boost up on Bingo and we talked about some of the gentle cows and steers that he has on his ranch in Bulverde. The ranch is called Saving Grace. I can just see us next year at this time with our little herd of Longhorns to spoil!!!!!

I LOVE this guy!!!!

We had fun looking at all the arts and crafts. Tom bought me a bracelet for $3.00. Michael McMahon had some beautiful jewelry.A local author and illustrator had some great children’s books for sale. Her name is Mary Borgia. Tales of the Texas mermaid is about a girl that gets her legs stuck in a cowboy boot. The tale is told by Blarney a Texas Longhorn. How could we resist such a great book and the beautiful author was there to sign it for us!

Next stop was a tatoo artist. Tom helped me decide which one to get. There were so many great ones to choose from!

I just picked up an incredible Giclee of my painting…… I did not have to worry about the care and consideration of my cherished paintings! I could hardly tell the original artwork from the reproductions. I can go to HEB and get copies of snapshots, but this process is just incredible!!! The print is done on the same paper that I use for my originals and it is even more archival than most surfaces that artists use. I can put my originals side by side and they are so comparable it is awesome. it is not expensive and I love being able to share my artwork with my friends and family without giving up my originals……I did some price shopping and also checked out some mediocre labs and this is what

We drove to Karnes City to see the famous Kimble Longhorn Cattle and we were not disappointed with the awesomeness of all of them. Dr. Janis Kimble gave us a wonderful tour of their beautiful ranch and these guys literally ate out of our hands. WOW was just as impressive as we expected. His color is described as “waterfall” Ranger actually rivals him in his unique markings. Oreo is gorgeous as well, with his jet blackface  and snow white spots. We were kids in a candy store! Santa I will be GOOD, I promise!!!!!!

All the animals were pretty laid back during this year’s parade. We took over 500 photos during the 2 hour parade and the festival on Saturday. I will add more photos soon. The floats were very creative and colorful! Held the second full week-end in October, the Floresville Peanut festival is always a treat!
