Out little Drummer Boy & a Cowboy Christmas

"Little Drummer Boy" is one of my favorite Christmas carols, especially Josh Groban's version. So I loved it when Brooks got into the spirit of things and made little version himself...
Rock on little man :)
drum a little... chew a little...
...chew a little...drum a little
We love our little drummer boy!!!

Last night we went to a Cowboy's Country Christmas party at ourchurch.
Yeehaw! ;)
They handed out festive green & red bandanas to get us a little more cowboyed up :) [made me want to go to the rodeo again]
{Mom, Dad, & Brooks, in his footy-PJs (we're classy, i know)}

What's on the menu? A cowboy's dream of a Christmas dinner!
Cornbread muffins w/ honey, [ridiculously moist] smoked chicken, baked beans, coleslaw, and potato salad...and after hayrides for he kids, there was hot cocoa, cider & donuts. Brooks's favorite was the potato salad :)
{I thought the festive cowboy boot centerpieces on the top right were pretty awesome}

They created this unique little handout...
"35 Things To Do With A Cowboy's Bandana"
Some of my favorites listed were:
- a mask or disguise to hide one's face--like a robber -
- a handkerchief to dry a lady's tears -
- knapsack for clothes like a hobo would use -
- a strainer for muddy water or coffee -
- a swatter to kill a pesky fly -
- a ground covering to keep her dress clean -
We even had some live entertainment,
countrified Christmas carols :)

It was a fun night! And I loved that the planning committee went off the beaten path with the cowboy theme for a Christmas party :)

Upon getting home,
we put our little PJ-wearin' cowboy to bed,
and watched The Office on Hulu: "Classy Christmas" parts 1 & 2.
Oh it was epic. I'd even say up to par with Jim & Pam's wedding...or when they had their baby. And that, my friends, says a lot :)

Oh, that is too cute with Brooks playing the drums!
We gave Adrienne some cookie tins and a spoon to play with too and she absolutely loved it, it was so cute to watch.

& the cowboys christmas party sounds like a lot of fun, definitely something I would have taken our little one too.
