Cookies for Santa

Now that December is here, the boys have been asking me every day, “Is it Christmas? Is Santa coming to our house?” Hudson has a little calendar and he marks off a day every day, so he can see how many days we have until Christmas Eve. But their excitement is so sweet!


My friends at Peek a Whoo sent us this sweet placemat for Santa’s cookies and some adorable aprons and chef hats for Hudson and Hayes. (And there is a discount code at the end of the post for you to grab some, too!) Because we have these things, Hudson has been asking to make cookies for Santa for the past few days, too. So I thought we could at least give it a test run.


I wanted to try a new chocolate chip cookie recipe, and little James Walker has turned me into a cookie monster lately anyway!


I let the boys get on the counter to help me and they were just so excited to help! And then they were excited to eat the chocolate chips.

Hayes pretty much smeared chocolate chips all over his face and hands. It was remarkable how he made such short work of those chocolate chips. But they were pretty excited to help with it all. And then they were excited to start wrestling on the counter top and the fun ended shortly after that.

The cookies were absolutely fantastic! I’ve included the recipe here in this post for you and your kids to try this season. Seeing all three of my boys’ names on the placemat just makes me so stinking happy! I can’t wait for James Walker to be here!

    So cute! Kaden is our little cookie monster. He loves to help me cook, and loves to taste while cooking even more (and I wonder who he gets that from!).
