Happy New Year!

I wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year!  May this next year be joyous & prosperous for you & your family.

I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be working on a new website next week so my site might be down for a day while I get everything switched over & get the links working properly.  It probably will be a work in progress for the next couple of weeks until I get it customized to my liking.  I am switching over to a blog that is a website & a website that is a blog - you will see what I am talking about soon!  

Here is a pic of me & Denali that was taken the beginning of December of us.  Thanks to my friend Shawna who took my Christmas card pic & this one of me riding the beginning of December.

I wanted to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and a Wonderful New Year!  

I want to thank everyone for their business & support this last year.  I am looking forward until next year with a new blog & a couple of new products.  I will also be starting a new business later in the year - look for more info on that mid next year.

Here is our Christmas card from this year - we tortured the cats by making them wear little Christmas hats.  Don't they look happy!

Christmas Deadlines

Hi Everyone!

If you are thinking about purchasing any prints or products for Christmas NOW is the time. Print orders generally print & ship within one day and products generally take a couple of days longer than prints to produce.  

All horse show photos ordered online have the following shipping deadlines to make it to you in time for Christmas:  First Class - Monday Dec 8th - this method can be slow I would opt for the priority mail just to be safe, Priority Mail - Friday Dec 12th & Express Mail- Thursday - Dec 18th.

If you order directly with me - via phone or email - you need to have your order in by Sunday December 14th.  

If you have any questions/problems please give me a call at 208-867-3174 or email me at

Our Thanksgiving Trip

This past week Ben & I traveled to Irvine California to spend Thanksgiving with his Dad, Reynolds.  We had a great time hanging out & visiting some of the local sites.  The weather was warm - at least we thought it was, the locals thought it was cold.  

Disclaimer: All of these images where taken with my point & shoot.  

This was taken at the Montage Resort in Laguna Beach.  We had a great Thanksgiving dinner here.  
On Friday we were trying to decide what to do.  "Let's go to Disneyland!"  Here are our excited Disneyland faces.

Disneyland was decorated for the holiday season.  We were talking and none of us had been to Disneyland in 20 years so it was really fun to experience it again.  The lines were really long and the park was packed but we still got to ride most of the rides we wanted to.  

Once it gets dark there was a holiday parade - none of the pictures turned out of it.  They also had a fireworks display but we didn't stay for that.  Cinderella's castle was all lit up - Ben & I had to pose for a pic in front of it.
On Saturday we went to Balboa Island & Newport Beach.  We walked around the island looking at the shops & cute houses.  Some of the residents really get into decorating for Christmas - below is a over the top decorated house.  We took a small ferry over to Newport Beach & ate lunch on the beach.  I made the mistake of feeding french fries to the birds - we were swarmed!  Luckily there were a bunch of kids around that took great pleasure in chasing the birds away from us.
On the last night we went out for authentic Korean food which was a first for us.  
We had a great time & are happy to be back.  I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving too!
