gingerbread men

Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope you're all having good weekends! We spent some quality time this weekend getting into the holiday spirit, if ya know what I mean.

pictured: holiday spirit.
DO YOU SEE HIS LITTLE ANTLERS THO?!?
Obviously, to the tune of hitting up my local convenience store to buy every last bit of tinsel-y bling-y jingle-y goodness. Just in time for some family and friends to come out to the barn for a fun day of playing ponies and picnicking!

we blinged out his stall lol
Which obviously included decorating Charlie's stall. Obviously. We tried to be careful in only attaching stuff where we hoped it would be out of reach... Tho I suppose only time will tell on that. Charlie has a penchant for destruction every now and again, the grinch.

these gingerbread men cookie kits were.... kinda janky haha
I also picked up some gingerbread man decorating kits that were.... Somehow amazingly designed for human consumption despite being apparently made out of stale cardboard. And true story, the icing tubes were so gluey that we actually had to cut them open with scissors lol.

adapt evolve overcome!! y'all are destined for greatness haha
We're a resourceful group, tho, and eventually the cookies were decorated. And c'mon, they're kinda cute, right?

charlie would very much like to learn more about this gingerbread man situation
Charlie certainly thought so haha.

THIS COOKIE IS RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS
Lol those poor gingerbread men, they never saw it coming. While Charlie's first bite was more or less delicate (tho, quite fatal being that he chomped the thing's head off), the second bite was..... A bit more ambitious haha.


And actually, for your viewing pleasure I turned it into an inspirational music video. Bc dammit I wish someone would cheer like that when *I* stuff my entire face with food lolol... Charlie's not the only one who can knock off a giant cookie in one two bites!!

aww he's a good dog tho.... (and those antlers omg i die)
Ha. So. Yea. The holiday gluttony may or may not have come early to Charlieland. Something tells me he doesn't mind tho! And anyway, it was fun so who cares.

Anyone else planning any fun horsey holiday parties?? Perhaps also with homemade (or home decorated) treats? I highly recommend the gingerbread men, it's fun for the whole family (but mostly Charlie) lol...

    Love the little antlers and the holiday spirit. I'm trying to muster up some holiday spirit but it's still a bit too soon... ;-) I have a horse friends gift exchange next Sunday so that should help.

  3. Charlie says bigger gingerbread men would match his capacity lol!

    We did our annual decorate the uncooperative tb and take holiday pictures session last weekend. The mugging that occurred around my pocket full of attention getters (aka German horse cookies) slung slime on my cute + originally clean shirt, resulting in a very limited selection of usable photos. (He also tends to get real relaxed on these occasions, which requires creative cropping...��)

  6. I routinely host a Christmas ride where everyone is encouraged to dress their horse and themselves in festive attire. I'm pretty sure this year will be an abbreviated and unmounted version (for me, at least) with a new baby horse and newly blown massive hoof abscess... at least my costume this year will be VERY apropos even though I chose it many months ago.
    I love the Christmas cookie idea!

  7. Opie is a serious snob about treats, but he will kill a bitch for gingerbread.

  8. This is so cute, haha!
    I don't know that Annie would eat gingerbread, but I know a certain rotund pony who would go ape-shit for decorated cookies!

  9. Haha, very cute! We used to make a gingerbread house every year growing up and never ate it, both because we felt bad to ruin it after all that hard work, plus I don't think they were that good =P

  10. What a good boy Charlie! I'm pretty sure 2 of my three (ie: not Subi) would eat those cookies... And maybe Subi'd prove me wrong? lol

  11. OMG I love this! I'll have to see if Amber will eat a gingerbread cookie. Usually she won't try anything new until AFTER Whisper does LOL

  12. Haha! This is great! Charlie is definitely there for the cookies! (I can relate.)
