About a week ago, the Cowpokes and I made some Holiday cookies. We made them early because of Big Cowpoke's holiday travel plans. This year Big Cowpoke gets to spend Christmas with his Dad. So, we got to do some early celebrating. Which was alright with me. And the Cowpokes had a blast. While growing up, my mom made it a tradition to make graham cracker houses with home made white frosting and loads of candy!! Oh it was so much fun. I am going to try to do that next year, when the kids are a bit older. The cookies got kind of crazy.They all gathered at the table and grabbed the frosting and decorations. It was a lot of fun. All of our Holiday cookies have been eaten, so I think Little Cowpoke and I will have to make some more. Cowpokette was better at undecorating than she was at decorating. She sure was into the frosting though. She also tried to help Big Cowpoke undecorate his cookies, but he wouldn't have it. Cowpokette tried to make it up to him.With a super slobbery sugary kiss.Just look at that face!! She is in sugar cookie happy land. Big and Little Cowpoke were a bit more professional about the whole ordeal. Simply perfect. The yummiest candy cane ever. I have a small obsession with sugar cookies, white frosting, and red hots. Oh dear, they are my favorites.Little Cowpoke liked to decorate. He had a little help from Mr. Cowboy. But Big Cowpoke, didn't have help from anyone. Big Cowpoke was all business. He made some really pretty cookies. The more sprinkles the better. Big Cowpoke likes to do artsy things. Then I got to decorate some cookies too. It's so hard to decorate and not eat the yummy cookies right away. I can't wait do decorate some more cookies for Santa. We will defiantly have to do that tomorrow night. Santa likes fresh cookies, so I heard. Cowpokette just like any kind of cookies. Just look at that drool!! I really wish her eye teeth would come out all ready. They are just sitting under her gums. I can see them. And the poor dear drools everywhere. So, does anyone have any fun Christmas traditions that they do the night before Christmas? We are going to make more cookies to leave out for Santa.
