Cookies For Santa



Kaylee and Jacob love making sugar cookies. (Hmm...I wonder where they get that from? Although, personally, I love eating them more.) Even though Christmas preparations seemed a little more frantic this year because of all of the snow, the kids didn't want to miss out on frosting a plate of cookies for dear old St. Nick. (Little Miss Kaylee was especially insistant on decorating several cookies herself for Santa. She probably thought she needed all of the brownie points she could muster up in the final hours before the sleigh headed in our direction since her behavior had been rather "questionable" the last few weeks. But, shhh...we aren't discussing that.)









Christmas Eve, we carefully set out the plate of cookies for Santa. I made a quiet plea to Santa to please remember to actually eat the cookies this year, instead of "forgetting" as in years past. Somehow, I knew the kids would be checking to see how Santa liked their masterpieces. Boy did Santa have fun with that assignment this year, lol.
