Ho! Ho! Ho! The time is drawing closer for the man in the red suit to make his appearance. We have the cookie makin's for Christmas Eve, the carrots are ready to put out for Rudolph and his crew, and we've made Sparkle oats for the reindeer so they have more power to finish out the night.
Our family will be here with us to set everything out for Santa in front of the fireplace, where we will be chimney-ready for our visitor.
In case you missed it last year, here is the recipe for Sparkle Oats
One cup of dry rolled oats
Sprinkle any color glitter (we like the multi-color) to your eye's satisfaction.
Mix all ingredients well and place into a bowl for reindeer. FYI the reindeer are messy eaters. We've found sparkle oats all over our front porch along with the green tops from the carrots. <grin>
For your Christmas reading pleasure, try this great collection about contemporary cowboys and Christmas. A Christmas Cowboy to Keep is a wonderful collection from seven great authors.
The weather is cold, the atmosphere is festive, and the cowboys are hot. How do you keep a cowboy at Christmas?
From our house to yours,
