Day 8 & 9: Santa and Cookies!

Somehow the advent baggies under the tree got mixed up so we opened two on Saturday to sort out the weekend activities.

Saturday we baked cookies! Originally we had thought gingerbreads and we would decorate them but then we decided on Orange Chocolate Cream Cookies.

They are an amazing recipe from Scott's family and so perfect. Butter, chocolate, cream cheese and orange zest?! How could you go wrong? Keep checking back this week Scotty will be blogging our baking adventure and the recipe for all to enjoy!

Today was the big Santa excursion. Yikes - Jack was not warm to the idea of going to see Santa. It surprised me a bit but then again maybe not after thinking it through. So much suit and beard and hat you could barely tell its an actual person.

Jack skeptically stood infront of Santa grasping both my hands an watching. Santa played along and "Ho Ho Ho"d a bit. After Santa tucked a candy cane into Jack's overalls Jack turned to me and then very strongly signed "All Done". Gotta love this little man and his grasp of the situation. Instead of a picture on Santas lap we opted for a picture infront of Santa perched on Mommy's knee with a MumMum in his hand.

Haha definitely no smile there - a rare moment for Jack!
But no worries because he perked right up once we were clear of Santa.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoying another post about our Happily Hectic Household!
