The crocheted Short & Sweet cardigan from Panda Cotton initially intended for my Mom's Christmas present now resides happily in my closet. It was all done save the button bands, but I couldn't gather the umph to finish it. Luckily, she called from the East Coast requesting some Barry Manilow CDs. When I got on the phone with my brother to make sure he did not get the same thing for her, he advised me she was no longer the size I was making the sweater in. Saved by Barry Manilow! I did the plain single crochet button bands and 'tho a little big on me, I love it and have already worn it.

The first night we were there was also the first night of Hanukah, so there was a ceremonial lighting of a menorah at sundown, before the first concert. In the distance under the canopy, you can barely make out the Christmas tree being set up.
In conjunction with the rodeo, there's a huge shopping venue set up at the convention center by the Hilton called Cowboy Christmas. Here you can buy any and everything you could ever want to fulfill all cowboy related needs.
The super sized pick up is for hauling the luxury RVs with room for people and horses in extreme comfort. The price tag on this rig alone was $200K.
We don't have our reservations for our next trip yet, but we are aiming for February around Valentine's Day. We make a game of counting all the brides and grooms.
