I left it up to my husband and son to make Santa’s Christmas cookies…

Luckily I had a roll of cookie dough to fix this! LOL The edges were burnt to a crisp and the middle was uncooked. I’m still laughing over this one.

We spent Christmas eve with my sister and her family, Andrew was in heaven to FINALLY open some presents…

Andrea received a butterfly push toy and took off walking for the first time!!
Guess she just needed a little motivation to get her going…

Christmas Eve we put out cookies, milk and carrots for Santa and the Reindeer..

I had a wonderful time watching my kids dive into their presents and enjoyed every minute of the holiday.

I hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas!

    Those are the most adorable little Santa PJ's. Oh, I want to squeeze them (and I don't even know em')lol She wanted to share her first time walking with her auntie and have it be in the Christmas memories journal. I found a couple of things that cookie design could have been. Glad you had such a great time! Gladys P Gladys Parker recently posted..My Birthday Chronicle Review & Giveaway Reply

    I think it's cool that your husband baked cookies with your son. I wish my DH had time to do those things, but he does what he can. The cookies are what I would expect. lol Reply

    Merry Christmas - our house looked a lot like your house. Our little one started walking, too - she's only 10 months old. We were quite surprised Reply

    I love the giant Santa cookie. I'm glad your husband didn't "correct" his work. Beautiful children! Reply

    Precious! Oh, and the giant cookie thing would turn out better if your hubby had turned down the oven temp by about 25 degrees F and baked longer--just for future reference. LoL! I remember the mess my husband made once when he got a roll of cookie dough. He actually told me that making individual cookies was to much of a hassle. Cheers! Jayme Reply

    It's all about the kids! It looks like you had a wonderful Christmas & your kids are beautiful. I've never been a fan of Christmas until I had grandchildren & as of the last few years I've played Santa on Christmas Eve. I look forward to this more than anything & this year included two other homes besides my grandchildren so the kids I care for got to "see" Santa as well. It's such a hit & it makes my heart swell to spend Christmas with my own grandchildren & have them tell me all about seeing Santa the night before. Your plate of cookies are wonderful ... I need to send my daughter your way. The smart alec thought it would be funny to leave Santa a healthy snack; yogurt! Happy New Year! Reply

    aww...how wonderful you will remember this holiday as your little one started walking! We do the same with cookies sometimes and make a big smiley face out of sugar sprinkles. Then have a family cookie dunk by breaking off the pieces. Kids love it and saves me time in the kitchen! Reply

    LOL! Must be a guy thing. I've done what your husband and son did with the cookie dough... I thought it would be so cool to bake one giant cookie. I was wrong! Edges were burnt and center uncooked. Reply
