Cookies for Santa

After church on Christmas Eve, we laid out cookies for Santa. We chose a few of the ones the boys made earlier in the week. Then we poured a cup of (soy) milk and tossed a few carrots on the deck for the reindeer.

Then we read “The Night Before Christmas” by Clement C. Moore and Matthew saw a picture of a candy cane in the milk for Santa. He jumped up, found a candy cane and stuck it in the cup.

Candy canes dissolve in milk. Also, carrots freeze when tossed outside on the deck in sub freezing weather. Trust me.

Like Matthew’s festive PJ’s? The elves left them while we were at church. David got a pair, too, but he refused to wear them.


The elves were a little hurt, to be honest. They thought those PJs were mighty cute.
