Let’s hope you were nice, but either way you must leave Santa some cookies tonight! I can remember how important it was when I was little to carefully plan not only Santa’s plate, but a plate of carrots for the reindeer too. I would go to bed and be completely convinced I heard sleigh bells. On one Christmas Eve when I was in grade school, I was actually awakened by the sound of bells going off. I went into my parents room and woke up my mom and told her, and she told me to go back to bed because it was probably just Santa. I insisted that she listen ands she surprisingly heard them too. We got up and followed the ringing. Turns out it was a timer going off in the kitchen! We still laugh about that one. My mom and I also love these photos of both of us at one time in our young lives with Santa, although we don’t know why mom is on a stuffed mule.
So as far as the cookies go, I have been giving you ideas all week of what you could leave Santa. I’m sure you have many more, so I doubt Santa will go hungry. Here’s a recap of some the latest from earlier blogs.
Merry Christmas, everyone!
Sleep tight. Those bells you hear might be a timer, or maybe not… Depends on if you were naughty or nice…
