Doing this blog has been one of those exciting things for us this year. I have met many new people. You all have been so great at sharing your thoughts with us. And the photos you all share are amazing. It inspires me to take more photos and challenge myself more. So thank you to our blog family.
We started the year with a cattle show. We had a great calving season. We had an even better breeding season. Our Little Man had Grand Champion Heifer at county fair. We went to our first Junior Simmental Show, where we met so many nice people. And we spent plenty of family time together. We had a new addition in our little Possum. My SIL, her momma and I took the babes to Tennessee for a few days. Then we took the heifer to NAILE. Then in December our Little Miss showed for the first time. And is now in 4-H. All four Dawson children showing, I thought it would be forever. How time flies.
And in between all the fun. Our son had surgery on his left foot in April. Then the right foot the first of December. We had more rain than I care to mention. We haven't had much snow. We had our first family cattle sale. We had an awesome trip to Michigan this year. And we loved every minute of it. 2012 should be full of so many memories too.
I hope you all have had a wonderful year with friends and family. And that 2012 brings you much joy and happiness. I can't wait to see all of your posts and pictures.
