Christmas Eve Cookies
Every Christmas Eve the Cowpokes make Christmas Cookies. This year I made homemade frosting to go on top of the sugar cookies. It was so good. Cowpokette thought so too. But here are some of the pictures from us decorating. Little Cowpoke isn't in any of them because he fell asleep. We tried to wake him up a few times but he was out for the count! Yes, Big Cowpoke is wearing an apron! Belle was really hoping that some of the cookies would fall on the floor for her! Some of the finished products! That last one is my favorite!! The kids had fun. Then they picked their favorite three cookies to leave out for Santa. Then it was off to bed! Well, at least for the kids it was. It was time for the "Elves" to get presents under the tree!! But first, Mr. Cowboy had to give his Belle Dog a hug. Mr. Cowboy then put together a Kitchen Set for Cowpokette. All the reviews on the set said it would take about 2 hours to put together. But not for Mr. Cowboy. It took him all of 45 minutes! He is a super star!! I wrapped and wrapped gifts until 2 am! I was so happy when I was finally finished. There it is, the glowing living room! The Kitchen, stroller, game chair, and monster truck! Those were the big things that the Cowpokes wanted this year! Actually, Little Cowpoke wanted a black monster truck. But this was as close as I could find. He loved it anyway! The stockings were hung!! Mr. Cowboy's stocking is the biggest! Belle and Brodi each had stockings too! And there are all the presents! It looks like a lot, but we don't cut the bottom branches off our tree so the presents don't fin under there. It makes it look like there is a ton of gifts!! We are sneaky!! Well, it was definitely time for bed! Santa came and ate cookies and had left a bundle of gifts for the Cowpokes!
