Of course we made cookies... gingerbread, sugar, pineapple drops, chocolate chips oh and some green chocolate dipped pretzels! The gingerbread is hands down my fave! But I don't have any pictures of them really. But... whoa... up close shots ;)

The boys helped decorate!

|Only a small portion that was decorated by Jake... he was on a roll!|
Then on Christmas Eve we tried to get a pic of all three boys... our best one is blurry!
Big boys opened their ornaments to hang on the tree (its a tradition to get an ornament to open up and hang on the tree on Christmas Eve).
Put out the "Magic Reindeer Food" that Jake got from school.
Got Santa's cookies & milk out too (I painted that plate last year!).
Next morning they got to see what Santa left them... a kitchen... they're still over the moon about it!
Luke rather enjoyed the opening of the presents.
I made red velvet pancakes made from inspiration from something I pinned on pinterest... although mine did NOT turn out nearly as red... but they did taste more festive than the normal ones!
