cookies for santa

max and i have been busy christmas bees this afternoon...making messes and baking cookies for santa.
baking with buddy is something i cherish...especially this time of year. i've never known someone to use so much icing...or sprinkles. or to insist on baking in his underwear. he's surely my kind of guy!

this year has been funny with max and christmas believing. 
he's always been a little leery of the idea of a man breaking into our house at night...presents or no presents. he's just never trusted santa. 
(remember this christmas when he wore a ski mask to bed and hid a plastic sword under his pillow? and this one where he stalked santa at the mall?)
this year he is full of belief and trust! he even has justified the improbability of santa delivering presents to the world by theories of worm holes and time freezing. it's been a real hoot! a gift, really. 
 
i hope all of you celebrating have the happiest happiest christmas! 
sending lots of love and peace and joy to your family from mine. 

xoxo

  7. oh my stars, that little max is a hoot! my husband and i shared a good few giggles over his ski mask and sword and santa stalking...we say "good lookin' out max!"...you never know what could come from a man coming down the chimney while you sleep. jolly could just be his ploy.

  8. Those cookies look so yummy and your Max is so cute! Your stories about him are always so hilarious (The ski mask! Hehe!) I completely understand him being wary of Santa though - I always was too.

    happy holidays sweet.

  17. Seems like the right amount of icing to me... (; Worm holes and time freezing, what a mind! Seen Arthur Christmas with him? Great film which might help explain. Anyway, lovely biscuits, lovely photos and lovely stories.

    (:
