Christmas Cookies: Day 3 and So Much Santa

Day 3 of cookies actually took a few days, and I forgot to take pictures of the lemon poopy seed cookies I made yesterday, but trust me they look and taste good. I also made chocolate truffles, they aren't too pretty cause I had problems rolling them into balls so I won't take a picture, but trust me they are absolutely delicious!!! Hopefully they will survive the nest few days and we can share them with our family, if not oh well!!

We were going to make candy cane cookies, but Mike we decided to make more sugar cookies instead, since Mike we were eating WAY too many of them and wanted to have some left to share.

We made Gingerbread PEOPLE (we are very PC here) and faces- due to some issues with the dough.

the boys once again spent hours decorating

This one was my favorite, and I promptly ate it right after I took the pic.

Saturday we decided to go see Santa, Rowan had been asking and it was something he had never done before. I HATE going to the mall- anytime, but especially this time of the year! HQ tipped me off to the other "mall." Ok I knew it existed, but think about it for Santa, and it was great we waited 5 minutes. You do have to wait for your pic(they mail it) but it was $6 and we were in and out. They definetly have a lower budget than the big mall, but I don't care and Rowan certainly doesn't. Just a tip for any locals, don't forget the little mall!!
Tonight Rowan got a call from Santa, he acted like he knew he was calling it was so cute. They chatted about the weather- it is pretty cold here just like at the north Pole. Santa remembered seeing Rowan last week at the mall and even thet he wanted a guitar!! Ok so it wasn't reall Santa, it was my mom's boss- who apparently does this for people he knows. At first I was a little creeped out about a stranger calling my kid, but it was awfully cute!

What I get a candy cane!!! SWEET!!

That's awesome that he did so great with Santa! And it was really sweet of your mom's boss to call! Rowan will be very sad when he reads your blog in a few years and finds out it was fake. :P

Bubba is randomly saying, "Me afraid of Santa." Even when there's nothing around that remotely looks like Santa. Maybe it'll get better next year?

We never even tried to take him before, and I didn't even bring it up- I think he saw a pic on a blog of someone's kids sitting on his lap and then he asked!

Wow! Your cookies look AWESOME! You guys should go into the cookie decorating business. =)

That is really cool that Rowan got a call from Santa. WW was really into Santa this year. Last year she was totally freaked out and I have a picture of her crying on Santa's lap. But this year she jumped right up on his lap and told him she wanted a Wiggles DBDB (DVD).
I'm glad you had a good experience at the "other" mall. Sorry I forgot to tell you that they mail the picture, but it usually doesn't take very long.
