Cookies and Mrs. Claus


We welcomed family to our home over the holidays, and were quite excited to see a Facebook posting by one of the new local bakeries in town, Oooolala With a Kiss for a drop-in cookie craft scheduled for Christmas Eve day.  Mrs. Klaus welcomed us to the bakery where the kids could select a large snowflake sugar cookie, liberally frost it with red, white, or green icing, and then decorate it to their hearts content with a wide variety of sprinkles, sugar decorations, M & M's, and more.  It was quite fun, and the perfect way to keep the youngest ones entertained as the excitement for Santa's arrival was continuing to build throughout the day.  Several of these cookies were enjoyed after dinner, and a few were specially placed for Santa, along with a carrot or two for the reindeer.  Such fun!  The celebrations have since concluded, the cookies are long gone, the family has all safely returned home, but the memories of special times and festive moments continue to dance in our heads.

It sounds like a very special time was had by all! The sugar cookie event hosted by Mrs. Claus is a very special thing to do!

I love this idea. I will tuck this away for a couple years in my mind and then cookie decorating will commence.
