NEW ARRIVAL
Topping the headlines is our new filly,
Jesse.  She arrived moments after
Jane, Casey, Josh, and Mac left after a
post Christmas Parade lunch.
Pictured on the right, was her first
attempt at getting to her feet at about
15 minutes after she was born.  It took
her four tries to get up, and on wobbly
knees, she started nursing right away.

Before the blessed Jack Ass
event, Carter, Josh, & I got
up at 5am to get ready for the
Terrell Christmas Parade.     
The shepherd boys really
have their "parade waves"
down pat.  Josh is holding
our (St. Johns) trophy.
Jack (very proud father) came
over to greet his new daughter
with the loudest and proudest
HEE-HAW but Jenny wouldn't
let him anywhere near her little
girl.
MERRY CHRISTMAS - HAPPY NEW YEAR

Jesse - our newest addition
born 12/12/09
Charlie and Mac
bumped into an
old friend of
theirs
while watching
the parade.  
Word is that
they were really
"sucking up" to
Santa.
    Aunt Mary is doing pretty well, thank God for great insurance
&  Baylor Healthcare.  We decorated her apartment for Christmas.
