Chocolate Chip Cookies for Santa

Having the ultimate sweet tooth I am always a fan of making cookies for Santa Claus.  Today the boys and I made some Ghirardelli chocolate chip cookies. We made them from the box which was a little more involved than pre-made dough, but not so much that it would take 20 ingredients and half a day.  Here are some pictures of my little chefs:

Santa Claus at Idle Hour in Macon

On Saturday we took the boys down to Macon where I am from to visit with my parents and see Santa Claus.  There is no doubt he is the real deal.  Ever wonder where it all comes from?  Check out Wikipedia, it gives a good history of St Nick.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Nicholas

Here are some pictures of the Big Man.

The Elf on the Shelf is a tremendous power in our house. The kids run around every morning trying to find him hidden around the house. During the day they leave him chocolate only to find empty wrappers when they return from school. They tell him about their days and what they want from Santa, and totally trust that each night he delivers their message to the North Pole.
