I wanted to wish every one a Merry Christmas from our house to yours!!! I hope Santa visits everyone and gives them exactly what they have wished for. I tried to take some holiday ish type pictures the other day. The idea failed miserably. It's really hard to take pictures of moving targets. Both Cowpokes were really excited about having their pictures taken, just not at the same times. And Little Cowpoke showed his excitement by jumping all around. Cowpokette wasn't too sure about that. She just wanted to sit pretty and smile for the camera. Then we tried to get animals involved. That was interesting. Since sitting wasn't working, I did try the standing next to the Christmas tree pose. And, I just do not think that three year old boys are meant to stand still next to a tree. Big Cowpoke thought he looked cuter if he had a winter hat over one shoulder. And yes, the child is bare foot for Christmas pictures. I can try to dress him up to look at proper, but you just can't take the country out of the boy. Cowpokette was a bit upset with how Little Cowpoke was acting. She wanted to be in front of the tree. She sure does have that face down. The I am so sad look with her mouth wide open, screaming. And the tears are short to follow. Big old crocodile tears. Poor dear. I eventually got Little Cowpoke to kind of sit still. And then my cruddy point and shoot camera would not take clear pictures. Oh well, you can't say I didn't try. And I also had one more participant that was easy to take pictures of. Good boy, Brodi. I can always depend on him to listen to me. I love that old fellow. Then there is this fellow.He sat there on the floor pretending to help. He told me it was useless to try and get pictures. Well, he was almost right. But I will get some good ones tomorrow. I promise. Mr. Cowboy got one shot of me and Cowpokette. I love having a girl who likes to have her picture taken. It's too sweet. And after I finally gave up on pictures. What do the kids do?Some floor tumbling. Yes, because that is what we do in our nice clothes. You gotta love them.And I think it made the kids happy. We hope you all have a very Merry Christmas!!
