Annual Santa Claus cookie making

Santa Claus cookies are super fun for the grandkids to make and so my parents have been making it a tradition for the last few years:

Mom loves the nap time

I love it when the baby is snug, warm, and SLEEPING! A lady who gets adjusted at Jeff's office made this cute fluffy mat. I put it by the computer and Raelynn fell fast asleep...our computer puts out a constant hum and heat. That did the trick! She is now 6 weeks and as far as I know super healthy. She is a great nurser and I am learning that eating the wrong foods can make for a super fussy baby. My list of foods I researched "not to eat" is about a mile long. Not fun, but when I stick to it she is a happier baby I have found. We love having a girl and I am starting to get out of the "just had a baby" haze.

Work Christmas party and some Holiday baking

Last night we had the Preferred Chiropractic work Christmas party at Rockin R Ranch.

I love cowboy food and as you can tell, so does Jeff:

(He looks GREAT as a cowboy)
In the fun little cowboy singing show they ask anyone who's Birthday it is to go up on stage...poor Heather has a loud husband and brother who thinks it is funny to point to her (isn't that like a third grade thing to do?!):

The best part of the night...the white elephant gift exchange. The limit was only 20 dollars and somehow Jeff and I ended up with a gift card to Texas Road House that has 60 dollars on it!
We have been attempting some Holiday baking. Okay, this really means that I add an egg to a mix and put it in the oven!
Brody has been in Science class for Gilbert Parks and Rec and on Thursday they are having a little Christmas party where the kids are to bring a treat. Brody picked out his own cookie mix at the store, cracked the egg, mixed the dough, and even rolled it out and decorated the cookies:

The kid HAD to sample every step he was doing. We had to wash hands very often!

Raelynn's baby blessing

Sunday was a great day for us...Raelynn was blessed and we were able to have the whole family come and hear it and then over to our house for a quick breakfast. My sister Christa has a wonderful camera, so I just hopped over to her blog and stole all her pictures to do my post! Isn't that the easy way to do it. :)
My little girl is so stinkin cute:
