Christmas Nesting

I spent Sunday afternoon baking cookies. I made gingerbread men and snickerdoodles.

I remember my mom spending days baking and making all kinds of homemade Christmas goodies and I'd like my child to have some of that experience. So, I figured I'd better try to get in the habit of baking.

As a kid, I always left a note and milk and cookies out for Santa, as well as a carrot or two for the reindeer. And Santa always ate the cookies and drank the milk, and the carrots were always gone on Christmas morning.

I told the S.O. that's how it works and I'm sure Santa hasn't changed in the many years since I was a little girl. Santa will be getting milk and homemade cookies at our house in the years to come.

  1. We started a tradition of making cookies for Santa last year, and it is so much fun to watch my daughter making them. I think it's an excellent tradition.
