Kids are fun

I have been trying to get into the Christmas spirit these last few days, so I decided to bake some holiday cookies with the kids. We had some leftover icing from Izzy's Elmo cake, so I decided to decorate the cookies too. Look...

Porgie was absolutely smitten. For two hours, she babbled on and on about Frosty. After dinner, she was finally given the opportunity to eat Frosty...After three little nibbles, she was done. I wish I could stop after only three nibbles.

Although we haven't seen any snow here in New Jersey, Porgie is definitely ready for the white stuff. She loves wearing her mittens and scarf. But clothes? Not so much...
And finally, here is a picture of the kids with Santa...
As you can see, Porgie isn't really a fan of chubby old men. Did you notice Santa's death grip on Porgie's leg? She was KICKING him. Poor old guy.

LOL> I love pics of kiddos who hate the Santa thing. I'm not sure why, but I think they're hilarious. Definitely save it for the first date and any opportunities for embarassment. :)

Cookies look great!

I wish I could stop at 3 nibbles too! That Santa picture is great! Perfect for the photo album. In years to come you can tease her about it.

Those snowmen look just like the ones they sell at Starbucks. You should start a business. It certainly does look like you're having fun this holiday season.

You're some kind of baked-goods-decorating GENIUS.

AWESOME Santa photo. Nora enjoyed it, too. My two-year-old helps me read blogs a lot.
