Baby Shower gifts...

Today was my cousin, Chelsea Coon's baby shower. It was at Ron & Debbie's house. They have their horses in a pasture in their back yard & of course Lindsey is obsessed with horses. She has absolutely NO FEAR!!! She was being good & staying on the right side of the fence & just feeding the horses carrots. Then she got out. She almost got trampled. She was out petting them & then the next thing we know she is SCREAMING & RUNNING from one of the horses. I didn't see it all but all I saw was the horse CHASING her & stomping his hoof at the ground right in front of my baby!!! I was so scared. I ran outside & ripped her up & tried to calm her down. She was ok of course & she was STILL not afraid of them. She still wanted to pet them, ride them & pretty much be with the the entire day & never leave. She is so brave it is scary.

Here are some pictures of her & our cousins feeding the horses & taking little rides on them around the yard.

Annie Coon & Abbie Coon (Cousins) riding around the yard in a wagon.

Lindsey & Miriam (cousin) feeding the horses some carrots.

I forgot to change the setting on my camera so this is kind of fuzzy but this is Chelsea Coon. The women of the hour.
Right in the middle, from left to right, Katie Coon, Jill Coon & Alissa Coon.
Katie, Jill & Alissa Again.

Lindsey riding the horse. I was holding onto her pants in case the horse decided to take off on us!
Uncle Ron kept trying to take pictures with me in the. I was trying to hide. He was being really sweet!! But I hate to have my picture taken.
Our little animal LOVER!!!
This is when I was trying to take her off the horse. She was very angry with me. We couldn't get her to let go of his mien.
Here are all the cousins (Lizzie Jensen, Alice Coon, Lindsey & Joelynn Coon) & Ron walking them around the yard.
Lindsey was so mad that we had to leave.
We had so much fun!! We are going to be going back this week so that Kelsey can ride the horses too. She was with her grandma & grandpa Davis today. I can't do all of them all at once. As you can tell, had Kelsey been there I might not have gotten to Lindsey in time & the horse would have gotten her. It wasn't the horses fault she shouldn't have been out there with out me. I have learned that now. I thought that if she was outside with a few older kids she would have been fine. But it scared me so bad that I doubt she will be let out of my sight for a while!!

A few days ago I made a rag quilt for Sadie. I posted all about it on my crafting blog ( She is IN LOVE with it. She is so funny!! Here are some pictures of her loving on her blanky. I am going to make one for each of my girls. Kelsey is excited to pick out the colors. I am sure hers will be pink.
