Decorating Cookies with the Clauses

Yesterday the Darigold cheese factory hosted cookie decorating with Mrs. Claus. Santa put in an appearance as well. This is a very fun weekend here in town.

This is Emma's pile of sprinkles and goodies, or rather- her cookie. When the girls got home, they picked off all the goodies, licked the frosting all off and then took a couple bites of the cookies.

Santa and Elizabeth. Elizabeth couldn't look at Santa while she was on his lap, and Emma wouldn't even stand by Santa. They love Santa from a distance. I really wanted Emma to tell Santa what she wanted for Christmas. I'm still not sure what Santa is bringing the girls yet. Since we don't seem to want to talk to Santa in person, perhaps we will be writing a letter to him. I need input!

Santa, Mrs. Claus and a helper.

I am completely amazed that you even leave the house! I am glad you got that double stroller you wanted! Mr. & Mrs. Claus look friendly to me! If it makes you feel any better... I don't know what I am getting two out of three of my kids.... I'm trying to buy less this year and only get things that they will actually USE. My favorites are blocks and games but we already have so many of them!

What a fun time! And a Mrs. Claus too! Our kids are usually afraid of Santa big-time. The only input I have is that this year we're giving our kids one thing they requested (each) and one surprise gift (each). I think art supplies and such are always appreciated and can be inexpensive too!

Cheese Factory!! That was always a highlight on the "Sunnyside Tour" when people would come and visit us! I want a bit of Emma's cookie!
