christmas fun

This holiday season has been full of fun events and it's not even Christmas yet! Last weekend was the Christmas PJ wine party (I finally got a picture so I put it at the end of the post) and this weekend was a cookie exchange AND Santa on the fire truck!

I had to bake 6 dozen cookies for the cookie exchange. I'm not much of a baker so I don't really have any cookie recipes. I searched online for cookie recipes for hours and finally decided on double chocolate chip cookies. They don't look that dark, but they are darker than regular chocolate chip cookies. They turned out delish!

So delish that I won the "Yummy Cookie Award"....YAY

Here are all the cookies I brought home. Lots of yummy cookies!

Every year Santa Claus comes around to the neighborhoods on the fire truck. Do they do this in your town? I always loved it as a kid and still do as an adult. We knew Santa would be coming today between 3-9. Huge window I know, but we were lucky that he came before Bryce's bed time. Bryce and I stood on the front porch and waved to Santa. I was surprised that Bryce was not frightened by the loud sirens blaring as they passed us. Hopefully Bryce will look forward to Santa coming on the fire truck every year!

All the pajama dressed girls at the Christmas party.
Next weekend will be busy and filled with holiday cheer, too. I am helping with the Madrigal Dinners at church on Friday, we are going to celebrate Christmas in Suffolk on Saturday, and we are going to the Country Club of Virginia for the Santa Brunch on Sunday. Lots to look forward to!
