|making cookies for Santa|
Another tradition in our family has always been my Dad making Christmas cookies with me and my sister. This year, Olivia took my place and made cookies for Santa with her Papa. They loved every minute of it. My dad was so patient with her despite her desire to just put the cookie cutter in the middle of the circle of dough. They placed the cookies out for Santa and then off to bed.

It was so great to relax for as long as we did and didn't have to cook meals or clean the house. We love going back up north to have our White Christmas but love coming home to our house so we don't have to deal with all the snow, haha. I love traveling but Olivia did ask when Santa was going to come to our house. Maybe in the next few years, we'll spend Christmas at home with just our little family and Santa.
