We had a fantastic day outside. Looking forward to tomorrow.

Christmas Eve

We made gingerbread houses with our friends.

First you cut the graham crackers.

Next, burn sugar and it will make the best glue ever!

It’s a big deal who is paired up with who.

Cow Tag Pen

For all your city folk, I know you just cocked  your head to the side and said, “huh?”

Cow Tags are earrings for cows basically.  You can make the tags so from a distance, my Dad or brother can tell which cow is which.

A Cow Tage Marker puts a capital P in permanent.  On the side of the marker you can read that it has a five year guarantee to last in outdoor weather.

I have been having trouble with “permanent” markers wearing off water bottles or on the kids toothbrushes.

When I was at the ranch, I had to make some tags for my Dad and I knew this is what I needed for Christmas.

There will be no more mixing up toothbrushes.

I have to make sure I hide this in a place where Larry, Curly, Moe and a little More Moe won’t find it.

Because it won’t come off for weeks! And knowing my boys, they would give each other mustaches with it.
