Picture Crazy at the Papon Farm

I love Christmas time and the chance we have to celebrate Christ's birth. It always seems like we just put up our tree and then we head south to visit family. This year we took our Jesse Tree quilt and Jotham's Journey book with us and shared our Christmas traditions with my family. We packed in a few months worth of fun into only three weeks of time. We are so thankful that Shawn's job and homeschooling allows us to spend some much time with our extended family since we live so far away! It may take us a few weeks to detox from all the spoiling we received.

 Yep, more Cheyenne this cowgirl loves her horse!

 Kaylee and Kolsen worked hard all week helping Papa recycle some old motors and made some serious cash.

 She even got to canter on this visit. She's becoming more confident in her riding on each visit.

 The kids all had fun playing with the other three K Papons!

 LT (the dog) is a sweet boy!

 Football in the side yard was a hit with these two boys!

 Kaylee spent quite a bit of time on Cheyenne this visit!

Hay rides with Papa!
Thanks Bruce and Yvette for putting up with our whole family for more than a week! We are so thankful for you guys and can't wait for you to visit us up north soon!


  1. No wonder we were all so tired! We sure play hard! The L.T. Pic is priceless. What a good boy!

  2. We had such a great time and miss everyone so much already! Can't wait to see you (hopefully) in the spring and then in July!
