or is that “ne’na’s” house now?  jasper lilith doesn’t say “nana”, she says “ne’na” – mom said that must be her new name 🙂

after giving her nana a Running Leap Hug (this is one of the best hugs out there – it is the type of hug where the little girl starts by shouting your name and running at you with her arms out and it is up to you to make sure that you catch her, swing her into the air and then hug her until she squeals!  really, best kind of hug in the freaking world!) and being reunited with the doggies, jasper got right to the business of horses as soon as she got there!

here she is with her sunglasses on (i feel the need for a disclaimer:  she picked those sunglasses out, not me but she loves them and wears them as often as possible – even indoors when i know she can’t see a thing with them on!) and a bag of grapes…

and here she is with the horses food buckets…  the fact that they are almost her size has not stopped her yet!

mom got her this really cute fleece vest and with the vest on and her jeans tucked into her boots, jasper looked like quite the pint-sized horsewoman…  well, except for the movie star sunglasses…

and yep, your eyes are not deceiving you!  jasper lilith has officially sat her first horse!  and she asked, nay (or would that be “neigh”?  HA!), demanded it too!  we went out in the pasture to feed them some carrots and give them some loving and jasper decided she wasn’t content to just pet them, she wanted to sit on them!  just to make it all the more clear to us, jasper leaned over mom’s arms and patted satin’s back and said, “sit!  sit!”…  well, we got it and so with a bit of trepidation on my part (ok, i admit it, more than a bit), she sat up there as proud as she could possibly be…

still sitting on that horse, hey?

mom, i promise, next time we are down there, we will make the time to get her on a saddle and in the ring!

and, as jasper would say, “taa-daa!!” here are the first pictures from my brand new birthday camera!! it is a beautiful thing and it is red which, of course, makes it even better 🙂

thanks, mom!!

jasper doesn’t stop let a 6 foot fence stop her – she just climbs right up it to get to sunny 🙂

and here is her beloved heidi – jasper is convinced that this dog was made for her and as sweet as heidi is to her?  i am not sure that she is wrong 🙂
