Our at home celebrations continue full steam ahead! I’m keeping Christmas magical if it’s the last thing I do. If only I could figure out how to get snow in Atlanta this week…. :-)
Monday night brought a visit from Santa in his sleigh….. er Jeep! A friend organized it for our neighborhood and it was absolutely darling. We tracked Santa’s progress all the way to our driveway. Now, you know my boys are wee bit past believing in Santa, although nobody has ever spoken those words aloud, but that doesn’t make it any less magical. I wish I had gotten a picture of Elsa in her Christmas jammies too but I was swept away in the whole thing!
Afterwards, we enjoyed cookies and milk!!
I put some thought into things we would miss this holiday season and one of them was the requisite cookie exchange. My boys eagerly look forward to me coming home with all sorts of sweets and treats every year after the one I attend with friends. I decided to just bring the party home. Why not?!
I could have spent hours baking dozens and dozens of cookies, but instead opted to buy out the Trader Joe’s. I put them on individual boards and we had a such a fun night critiquing them.
The crowd favorites were the gingerbread men and dark chocolate mint stars. Nobody finished their plate, so I slipped each board inside a gallon zip top to much on through the week. Zip tops labeled clearly with names, of course. No fighting at Christmas!
And, yes, I know this is a lot of sugar. And, no, I just don’t care at this point. Falalalalala.
These individual boards (SET OF 6 BAMBOO CUTTING BOARDS) are SO great and have been one of my favorite things about 2020. You can see another use of them here:

If you’re doing anything special or fun at home, particularly with teens, I’d love for you to share! It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
