Mama said I could take you for a sleigh ride! How do you like the sleigh? I think it is beautiful! Just right for two - mama gave me one of our quilts made by mama's mom - it is beautiful, red, black & white - a log cabin pattern. That will keep us warm! Here we go! I already have Amos hooked up, I checked the holdback straps they are secured: "Giddy-up Amos!" Oh my the snow is so soft and fluffy the front part of the runners are throwing snow in our faces! The moon is so bright and the stars are so clear - wow! Isn't God's creation so marvelous?! "Little faster Amos - we have a long way to go and a surprise stop along the way!" Look! There are some geese on the open end of the pond just to our right! I see four - wait, just a little further back on the pond by the river outlet are two swan! The river stays open year round and they stay here. Are they not majestic? Oh the snow is so deep - yet Amos goes so easily through the woods - trees just covered with snow - watch out! Now you look funny with all that snow that fell out of that tree on you head and lap! Look! There are three deer in the middle of the trail watching us as we approach them! They are stomping their front feet! They are breathing quite hard - you can see their breath in the cold air! There they go - must be the sleigh bells on the harness startled them. We are now in an open field - here, you can drive - head for that house in the distance that's where we are going for a special treat.
Well we are here! say hello to Jake, Brandy and the boys; Dylan, Aidan & Owen! - I hope you enjoyed the hot chocolate, fresh cookies and fruit cake! Sorry Brandy, we can't stay longer, it is a long ride back home. - "Shhhh, quiet Amos, I Think our passenger fell asleep! We are almost home!"
Mama And Papa hope you enjoyed your sleigh ride and that you have a very Merry Christmas!
