We took the kids to decorate cookies with Mrs. Claus at the Darigold factory yesterday. It's a tradition for the first Saturday of December here in town that the kids look forward to. Upon arrival some or other of the local "royalty" (aka Miss S- court, Miss Cinco de Mayo court, Dairy Ambassador) gave the kids aprons and boxes with two sugar cookies. Then we searched for an open spot at one of the tables so the kids can smear colored frosting on
themselves the cookies. And then the cram as many M&Ms, Skittles, sprinkles, gummy bears and whatever else they can get their sugar-happy fingers on.
But look at those happy smiles.
Afterwards, we got in line to see Santa.
