Cowboys & Mistletoe – And the Answers Are…

Thanks to everyone who stopped by to play Two Truths and a Lie with us this week – I hope you had as much fun with it as we did!

And, without further ado, here are the Answers:

#1. We once owned an antique wooden horse-drawn sleigh and dragged it out of storage every year.
TRUE
#2. When my children were young, they played characters in the church Christmas pageant, along with our donkey.
TRUE
#3. My husband was recruited as a last-minute substitute Santa Claus at the senior living facility where my late mother resided.
FALSE      My husband has never played Santa Claus

#1.When my daughter was nine, I ice skated with her in a Christmas Around the World performance put on by our local ice rink.
FALSE      I made her costume for that performance, but I am not daring enough to get out on the ice and bust my rear end every time I take a step. LOL She skated as a kid and then went back to it a couple of years ago in her mid-thirties. She is a competitive skater now, and works part time at the ice rink where she skates!

#2. I met Dale Robertson before a Christmas event at The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum when I worked there.
TRUE

#3. I have two relatives who were born on Christmas Day.
TRUE

#1 – I visited Santa’s House in North Pole Alaska.
TRUE I was seventeen and traveling with my mom and brother to the Arctic where my dad was working. There really is a North Pole, Alaska near Fairbanks. I later worked with a fellow teacher who grew up there.

#2 – I once got a horse for Christmas.
FALSE

#3 – My family owned a herd of reindeer.
TRUE  It was a lot different than having cows. I still have several sets of shed reindeer antlers. 

1.    The last year I taught PreK, the teacher scheduled to play Mrs. Santa Claus for the annual PTO Breakfast with Santa fundraiser fell ill a few days before the event. Maybe it was my grey hair, my short stature, or my rimless glasses, but I played Mrs. Santa Claus at a children’s Christmas Party!
FALSE  While most of this is true, the teacher who was originally slated to portray Mrs. Santa Claus did recover in time. I was assigned to the hot chocolate station!

  1. Christmas movies in July?…love them all as I sip on my iced tea…Come October, November, December, I toggle between both Hallmark networks, Up Television, and Great American Country but…I’ve never seen the movie, Elf.
    TRUE
  2. I love wrapping presents! Not just at Christmas but for birthdays, Easter, whatever! However, my family always knows which presents are mine because they are so difficult to remove the bows, ribbons, and decorations. I get teased about it every time!
    TRUE

#1.    I once unwrapped a toilet seat as a Christmas gift.
TRUE  Yes, my husband really did wrap up a toilet seat and put it under the tree for me one year early in our marriage. He even had the audacity to say it was from our infant daughter. Once the disappointment wore off, we got a good laugh, and I have never forgotten it.

#2 My husband has bought me something cowboy-related every year for Christmas since I published my first western romance in 2010.
FALSE My hubby has given me many wonderful cowboy-themed gifts over the years, but they don’t come every year.

#3. The Christmas gift that made the biggest Witemeyer family splash was when I gave my high school daughter a copy of the MLA Handbook.
TRUE  My daughter actually asked for the MLA Handbook, and we just happened to have my husband’s uncle visiting that year for Christmas. He was an English professor, and he couldn’t get over how thrilled and excited Bethany was when she unwrapped that handbook. He had never seen the like, and it made his English-loving heart swoon.

#1.    I had a lovely apartment in New York for four years. Christmas in the big apple is the best!
TRUE 
#2. One of my family’s kooky Christmas traditions is re-wrapping and re-giving the same CD of the worst music ever, to another family member, who then must do the same the following year.
TRUE 
#3. My six kids are spread around the country, which makes getting them together for Christmas hard, but this also means I get to travel sometimes for Christmas, which is fun!
FALSE While most of this is true, I have only three kids, not six!

#1.  I published my first book when I was 52 years old
TRUE 
#2. I studied abroad for a year out of high school.
FALSE
#3. My sister is also a published writer and we had a sister who painted pictures.
TRUE 

#1.   I’m one of eight children. The only author
TRUE
#2.  My most recent release is book #75
TRUE
#3.  I got my first book published the same year my youngest daughter went to Kindergarten
FALSE  I started writing when she went to Kindergarten and had my first book release the year she graduated from high school.

#1.   I once celebrated Christmas with my family in a bike shop.
TRUE It was during the height of Covid, and my son-in-law managed a bike/coffee shop that had a showroom big enough for all of us to spread out at our own tables. I ordered sandwiches the day before (alas, they were a bit soggy), and to this day, I’m bummed our Christmas dinner was a dud. But at least, we were together, and we still had fun.

#2.  A couple of years ago, we made 18 pans of the Pioneer Woman’s cinnamon rolls as gifts, and none of them raised.
TRUE  Again, during Covid. Since we weren’t having our usual big family get-togethers, my sisters and I got together (wearing masks) and made the cinnamon rolls. Everything promised to be perfect and delicious until the rolls started to raise. Even though we froze them as quickly as we could, I was told by a professional baker that when we froze the raising yeast, we effectively killed it, which prevented the rolls from raising after being thawed.

#3.  My Christmas dinner was once delayed for several hours because the fresh turkey just wouldn’t get done.
FALSE  I’ve never roasted a fresh turkey, so this wasn’t me but instead my aunt, who was absolutely mortified that everyone was waiting around and hungry!

#1.  I listen to Christmas music all year long.
FALSE While I love Christmas music, I try to not start listening until after Halloween. But once November rolls around, I’m all about the holiday tunes!

#2.  I love to bake with eggnog.
TRUE I am not a fan of just straight eggnog, and neither is my husband, Captain Cavedweller. But baking with it? Oh, man! There are so many delicious ways to use eggnog. I make eggnog custard, eggnog bread, eggnog Snickerdoodles (probably my favorite), eggnog Bundt cake, and CC’s favorite – eggnog doughnuts. I have recipes for most of these on my website.

#3.  I once received a bag of dog food for Christmas.
TRUE  Although I wish this one was false, it is true. When I was in high school, my family decided it would be great if we drew names and did a gift exchange instead of having to shop for everyone. It never failed that one of my brother’s step kids would draw my name, forget they were supposed to give a gift, and show up with something they grabbed on the way out the door. My “gifts” over the years included an opened bag of marshmallows with a few packets of Swiss Miss hot chocolate thrown in, a partially used bottle of hair mousse, but the “best” of all was a bag of dog food. The following year, I  bowed out of the gift exchange. 

#1. I LOVE Christmas decorations and must have hundreds of tree ornaments alone. In fact I have a walk in closet dedicated just to the storage of my Christmas stuff. Because it became impossible to use all of my decorations on the tree at one time, several years back I began doing themed trees, which allows me to rotate them in and out. Some of the themes I’ve done over the years include angels, bells, stars, snowmen, and even a fairytale theme – but my favorite was the year I did a nativity themed tree.
FALSE  While it is true that I have literally hundreds of ornaments (and still growing!) I don’t try to do a themed tree – in fact it is very eclectic. My kids all have their favorites which MUST go on the tree every year and once those are up I just pick others as the mood suits me, not for how they may or may not match.  I do however have a collection of booklover ornaments and one of tea lover ornaments and I use those as tabletop displays.

#2. When my children were very young I started a tradition of buying them one ornament of their very own each year so that when they grew up and moved away they would have a ‘starter set’ of ornaments of their very own. My plans, however, met with mixed success. Two of my kids took theirs when they established their own homes, two of them still have their collections boxed up and stored in their former closets here at my house with the intention (or so they say) of taking them ‘someday’.
TRUE  The youngest is 37 – here’s hoping ‘someday’ comes soon!

#3. My siblings and I are all big on Christmas candy and treats and when we have our extended family gathering, which usually includes over 45 people, we all try to outdo each other. In fact there are usually more sweets than ‘regular’ food. My personal specialties are peanut butter fudge and a rice krispie based candy – and I like to experiment with at least one new item each year. As for the scrumdiddlyumptious candy my mom used to make, while my other relatives vied for her pecan pralines, I’d pass those up and go straight for her coconut pralines!
TRUE  I remember as a little girl grating fresh coconut for momma to use in her coconut pralines and nothing tops Christmas candy for me like these sweet treats and the memories they engender.

And there you have it – some personal glimpses as well as some playful lies from your friends here at the junction. How many did you get right? How many really surprised you?

Stay tuned – winner post is coming soon!

Cowboys & Mistletoe – Winnie Griggs

(POST  2 of 2  for Thursday)

Hello everyone, Winnie Griggs here, and I get to wrap up our Cowboys & Mistletoe Two Truths and a Lie posts. I hope you all have been enjoying them as much as we Fillies have. It’s always so fun to share festive silliness with special friends, which how I feel about this wonderful community that’s developed and blossomed here over the years.

Christmas books are not only fun to read but to write as well. For the writer it allows us to tap into everything we love about the season and it can bring up memories, both happy and emotional, as well as bittersweet thoughts of what used to be.

I’ve written a number of books set around the holidays, but today I want to feature His Christmas Matchmaker. I love Janell and Hank, they are such engaging, honorable characters who are perfect for each other – they just take a while to figure that out. But it’s the two children in the story, Chloe and Alex, who really touched my heart. Recently orphaned with one of them rendered deaf by the same accident that took their parents, they are truly hurting. And gruff, confirmed bachelor Uncle Hank means well but he has no idea how to help or deal with them. The fact that it’s just a month until Christmas drives this home all the more.  Janell, a schoolteacher, recognizes that this newly-formed family is hurting and impulsively steps in to help.

Here’s a little more info:

A guilty secret…

Vowing to put her past behind her, schoolteacher Janell Whitman has resigned herself to spinsterhood and she’s erected walls to guard her heart from all but her students.

A solitary heart…

Hank Chandler is quite comfortable with his uncomplicated bachelor life. But when he suddenly finds himself the guardian of his orphaned niece and nephew he knows all that will have to change. Not only do the children need a mother’s love, but he’s not fit to be a single parent. So he’ll need to marry quickly, whether he wants to or not.

A Christmas bargain…

Seeing their need, Janell impulsively reaches out to help the hurting Chandler family. But when Hank proposes a businesslike marriage she draws the line at becoming his wife. She softens her refusal, however, with a counteroffer – she’ll take care of the children after school and help him find an appropriate wife in time for Christmas. After all, with a man as great as Hank, how hard can it be?

But as the holiday grows closer, it seems increasingly difficult to find a suitable candidate––not to mention even harder to deny their growing feelings for each other. It might take a miracle for these two hearts to become one, but Christmas is the season of miracles–and love.

Warmest greetings of the season! 

I’m so happy to be here with you today celebrating our annual Cowboys & Mistletoe event, and also to share about my new sweet holiday romance that releases today!

 

Will an innocent offer of help lead two obstinate hearts along the road to love?

Truitt Lucas is the guy who brings laughter wherever he goes and refuses to take life too seriously. Beneath his carefree exterior, though, he yearns for more adventure and excitement than he’ll find working on the family ranch alongside his cousin and grandmother. When the opportunity arises to assist a trick rider, Truitt eagerly lends a hand. However, he soon finds himself drawn to the perplexing woman who barely tolerates him.

Jolee Judson is living her dream as a trick rider on the rodeo circuit, using her lifelong passion for horses and gymnastics to wow the crowds. But when her partner unexpectedly abandons her, Jolee is just desperate enough to accept a good-natured cowboy’s offer to help. Fascinated and infuriated by Truitt and his shenanigans, Jolee struggles against her growing feelings for him. Falling for Truitt could spell disaster for her future and derail everything she’s worked for.

Can the two of them find common ground where trust is earned and love becomes a cherished gift?

A sweet holiday novel full of the magic of Christmas, Tricking Christmas brims with small-town humor, heartwarming moments, and wholesome romance.

Now that our Cowboys & Mistletoe celebration is in full swing, I hope you’ve been enjoying the fun and silliness of trying to determine if we are telling you the truth – or lying right at you!!

It’s hard to beat a romantic Christmas story, isn’t it?  I’ve written several, but today I’m featuring THE CATTLEMAN’S CHRISTMAS BRIDE, Book 2 of my Wells Cattle Co. trilogy.

After Allethaire Gibson was kidnapped several years earlier in the wilds of Montana Territory, she tries hard to put her life back together in civilized Minnesota. She almost succeeds—until she’s framed for a crime she didn’t commit. With her reputation in shreds, she flees back to Montana to seek her father’s help in proving her innocence.

Mick Vasco never expects to see Allethaire again, but when he finds her in the middle of a train-robbery-in-progress, he has no choice but to kidnap her—again.

Together they race against time to find crucial answers. But during the blessed season of Christmas, they find wondrous gifts of forgiveness and love instead.

Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. It starts on Thanksgiving and lasts until after New Years Day and the decorations come down.

First a little bit about my next release, coming January 1st. The Legacy of Rocking K Ranch.

Six Decades of History Unfurls on a Wyoming Ranch

Journey to untamed Wyoming where four generations of women experience love, loss, grace, adoption, struggles with the law, relationships with natives, and through it all, family bonds.

Eleanor by Mary Connealy
1850 – Wagon train guide, Ray “Wild Cat” Manning, can’t ignore the abandoned wagon stricken with smallpox. Eleanor Yates, now widowed with an ailing daughter, says yes to Wild Cat’s marriage of convenience. It is her only choice—but far from her romantic dreams.

Grace by D. J. Gudger
1867 – Grace Manning abandons her journey east at Fort Laramie. The ranch is where she belongs. Unable to reach her father, Grace scrambles to find a way home. Captain Winfield Cooper is mustering out in a few short days. The gold fields at South Pass City are calling but a lonely laundress pleads to tag along with him and his motley men. Will this woman who refuses to unveil her face derail his dreams?

Caroline by Becca Whitham
1886 – Ray Cooper escaped reservation life by pursuing a degree from Harvard, but it hasn’t granted him the respect he craves in Washington, DC. Caroline Forrester longs to be more than a society hostess for her father. As the two fight against the Dawes Act, they also fight their growing attraction.

Penelope by Kimberley Woodhouse
1910 – Penelope Cooper, an ambitious writer, is commissioned by her publisher—and future husband—to present tales of the American West. She returns to her family’s ranch in Wyoming along with photographer, Jason Miller, to interview the women of her family. But will rediscovering her past make Penelope reconsider her future?

Cowboys & Mistletoe – Linda Broday

(POST  1 of 3  for Wednesday)

Hope’s Angel is a sweet romance about accepting others who are different and showing compassion.

When a horrendous accident leaves Jericho Cane disfigured, he retreats to the dark refuge of his childhood home. People label him a monster, a phantom and jeer. Only while the town sleeps can he find courage to venture out and seek solace in midnight rides.

But who is making mysterious repairs to broken items, leaving food on doorsteps and wooden angels on children’s graves?

Newly arrived, Irish doctor Kathleen O’Shea, has no fear of Jericho Cane. Armed with determination, she offers hope for him to live again. Still, can he thrive walking in daylight amongst the ones who call him a monster? If she fails, the darkness will consume him for good.

A holiday read that will touch your heart and remind you that Christmas is a time of acceptance, kindness, and for healing wounds.

Cowboys & Mistletoe – Kit Morgan

(POST  3 of 3  for Tuesday)

Hi everyone! It’s so great to be here for this year’s Cowboys & Mistletoe! It’s Day 2, and I’m sure you’re having fun discovering some new books, and reading some of the other fillies’ two truths and a lie! Those are always so much fun! And speaking of fun, I love this time of year! For many of us the holidays are all about family, traditions, and of course fun! Those are also a lot of the reasons I like writing about them! I love Christmas books and have written quite a few, but the one I want to showcase is Christmas in Clear Creek.

Christmas in Clear Creek was the first Christmas book I ever wrote, so it holds a special place in my heart. I’d created my little town of Clear Creek, Oregon, and topping off my first series, Prairie Brides, with this book was fitting! It deals with a small town in the old west, an outlaw wannabe, and the effort he puts into being bad, when all along he has a gift of doing good! Here’s a little more about the book:

Bowen Drake had a gift. Unfortunately he didn’t want it. He even went so far as to do ‘bad’ in order to thwart the ‘good’ that seemed to follow him everywhere! For when HE needed it the darn thing didn’t do HIM any good at all! He tried drinking, he tried womanizing, he even tried outlawing, but nothing worked. Finally he stumbles into the little town of Clear Creek and there discovers why we’ve been given the gifts we have…

Elsie Waller came to Clear Creek after the death of her grandfather. She had high hopes for her life in the little town including looking for a husband. Imagine her elation when she happens upon the man of her dreams the very day after she arrives! Of course, the fact he was half frozen did put a damper on things, but once the townsfolk of Clear Creek thawed him out she endeavored to make sure Bowen Drake stayed around long enough to see she’d make him a mighty fine wife! The only question was, how?

Enjoy Bowen and Elsie’s fanciful tale of mishaps, miracles, and love!

You can find the book on AMAZON

I’ve giving away an e-copy of Christmas in Clear Creek and a $5.00 Amazon e-gift card to one lucky commenter!

My six kids are spread around the country, which makes getting them together for Christmas hard, but this also means I get to travel sometimes for Christmas, which is fun!

I adore Christmas. It is by far my favorite holiday of the year. Time off from work, family reunited, giving and receiving gifts (I love both!), singing carols, eating goodies, and celebrating the gift of our Savior come to earth. I do my best to stretch the festivities into a full month.

This year, I’ve combined several of those passions into a Christmas short story. This one is filled with joy, romance, and plenty of Christmas spirit.

My True Love Gave to Me

The Twelve Days of Christmas get a romantic Texas twist!

Anna King has pledged her heart to Simeon Shepherd, but her father refuses to grant her hand to the young farmer. Simeon determines to be patient and earn David King’s respect over time with hard work and evidence of his ability to provide. However, when a wealthy new suitor arrives in Bethlehem, Texas to woo Anna with her father’s support, patience is no longer an option. Simeon has twelve days before Christmas to best his rival and prove once and for all that he is Anna’s true love.

A fun, quirky read that is short enough to squeeze into even the busiest holiday schedule.
