Later today, Sheila Bishop is hosting a holiday party and open house for all her model horse hobby friends. Party goers were asked to bring a Christmas ornament and a Mexican dish.
Well, I did manage to select an appropriate ornament. However, as soon as I saw those cute cookie cutters at Dover, I knew my "Mexican dish" was going to be... horse shaped.Actually, they're horse and rider shaped.
And, of course, I had to include a couple portrait models.This is cookie Flick.
is cookie Twist!
I haven't had the pleasure of meeting Sheila's boys in person...
but Facebook provided me with enough information to create cookie Butch and Sundance!
Eventually, I moved from portrait models to artist's choice. This is Cookie Appy (note the custom angry ears),
cookie dressage (with rider),
and blue and red roans.
Not surprisingly, the boys were part of my cookie party.
I put them in charge of decorating the riders...
and everything was going smoothly until Seth joined in.
After that, things took a turn to the silly side!
This is Seth with his "Fancy Pants" rider.
A better look.
Another one of Seth's creations.
We all laughed so hard our stomachs were hurting!
Ryan and James each decorated one horse. This is Ryan's version of Blue Mustang...
and this is James' psychedelic zebra.
Just another Friday night at the Buxton house...
Who knew that decorating cookies could be so much fun? I think custom cookies should be the theme of next year's holiday hobby party!
