Steph lives in southern MN, south of Pipestone Minnesota, and she and her husband Cullen both work in Sioux Falls SD daily. Their evenings are spend doing chores for their many horses and other animals. She still has her one "piggy" that is growing good and plays with one of her little dogs, Spot. Spotty is part JR and Rat Terrier. A little cutie!
A FEW PICTURES OF STEPH'S BIRTHDAYS GROWING UP.
Her 4th birthday with "Cookie Monster" cake baked for
her by Grandma Arvilla. Steph loved, loved Cookie Monster!
You can see how delighted she was with her cake!
Oh how I miss those days of our Happy Birthday Parties for the girls.
Steph's 5th Birthday, with Snuffleupagus! Cood dudes!
6th Birthday cake make by Grandma Arvilla!
Grandma Arvilla and Birthday Girl - One of my favorite pictures.
Her 8th birthday - moving on the Strawberry Shortcake!
Altho, Sesamee Street characters weren't forgotten.
Auntie Georgia and Uncle Vern got this cake for her.
Teen years! What a beautiful girl! So much fun to be with.
As Stephani grew up, her interests turned from Cookie Monster, Snuffleupagus and Strawberry
Shortcake to the horses. She was out with the horses all day long and during school months;
daily after school with the horses, as were all three of the girls growing up.
Here she and Jessica are out for a ride with Joker pulling them. Sheph trained Joker to pull and
had bought the cart and harness with money from her first job. Her love of horses hasn't lessoned.
She and Cullen are very active with their horses, breeding good Quarter Horses, in showing, games
and active in the area horse club.
During her teenage years, I'd bake "dirt cake" for her to share with her friends. That was a fun
cake to make for her, as today is also Earth Day!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEPHANI! WE LOVE YOU,
Mom and Dad
