Stefanie and Wrex Phipps are just such generous and giving people. They let us crash their farmland and just became a part of the Moslander family from far and wide as we celebrated and re-unioned together last week. Thank-you sooooooooo much, Stef and Wrex. EVERYBODY fell in love with you just like we did when we first met you. You made us so welcomed and were just a part of us! We love you and will never forget the great time at the farm! pictured: the farmer and his drop-dead gorgeous wife; Stef and Dessa

As Gavin would say… Qwazy!
Yes, that night was so fun and relaxing! Thanks Stef and Wrex for all you did for our family, we are truly so blessed to have you in our lives! We love you!
What a wonderful time that was at the farm!!! People pay money to go to petting zoo’s and horse riding stables, but we had it all right there for free and no work of my own hands! :0) Stef & Wrex, I want to say a huge THANK YOU for all you did to prepare for our clan and then to serve us while we were there! From bringing out the animals, benches on haybails, the “metal bull” (or whatever you call that thing), to the bonfire,I looked around and knew you had done a lot to bless our time together and it means so much! One of my favorite moments of the whole trip was watching our mother enjoy herself roping the bull. This is the cowgirl side of her we’ve heard about our whole lives, but haven’t as often been able to see. She lassoed the horseshoe pole first and popped a big bubble at the same time. When I mentioned to her that she was multi-talented, she said robustly, “It’s because I’m excited!” I loved watching her do something again that had brought her so much joy as a child. And then to top it off, she got roping tips from a professional! Thank you again for all you did for us!!!
