Ringing in the New Year at the Ranch

We continued a new tradition this year by spending New Year's Eve at the Ranch.  Becky, Ryan, Jenny, Leighton, Raeleigh, and MJ joined us for some real ranching fun.  Cooper and Penny had their jeep and Raeleigh and MJ had their raptor to romp around in.  It was hilarious to watch the four kids in two vehicles driving around.  One time we swore they were playing "chicken."  While the kids drove around, ran around, dug in the big dirt pile, visited the fish, and played with toys, the adults sat around the fire, drove the mule, played cards, shot clay pigeons and just watched the kids have fun.  Despite the cold, drizzly rain that began on New Year's Eve afternoon, everyone had a fun and relaxing weekend.  
The dueling kids' vehicles really made the weekend.

Happy New Year!  2013 is going to be great!
