WW Thanksgiving and Christmas

Wordy Wednesday this week! Thanksgiving and Christmas are kind of wrapped up into one for the Apel side.

This weekend the boys and I went Christmas shopping. We actually saw Santa. I know it's early, but he was in the shopping area we went to. Isaak was all bubbly towards him until it was time to take a picture. Mica on the other hand was stand offish. Later he said, "That Santa doesn't look like the one we see at the mall." I quickly said, "Ya. Santa gets helpers to look like him. He can't be in so many places at once. He has Elves to help him with making and wrapping toys too!" He seemed satisfied with my answer. Moral of the story: Take your kids to the same place to see Santa every year. That is if they hire the same Santa back again.


I made both Christmas and Thanksgiving cookies.

Meet Tom Turkey. He was so easy to make. I love how I found one last bag of candy corn on clearance! I totally think they should sell them into Thanksgiving time! The colors say both, "Halloween" and "Thanksgiving"!


 My husband loves football, so I made some footballs as well. Not really my thing, but they are cute!


I made a lot of Christmas cookies, but only took a photo of the Reindeer's food. I need to make more. Notice how I go to Donner and stop!


This was my Grandma's plate. I use it every year. I will cry one day when it breaks. More than likely it will be my fault, I'm accident prone!

Mica informed me that we have to leave Santa a letter telling him that the carrot cookies are for his reindeer and not Santa himself. Last year he ate 1/2 of one and left the rest sitting on the plate. Silly Santa! He also left our stove door open!

I was going to say that I'm thankful for kids that are well. Then Mica and Isaak got the stomach flu this weekend. I am thankful that both boys are doing great academically in school! Have a great Thanksgiving!

those cookies are so cute & yummy looking... any left to share?? I'd even take a broken one or more, grin. I always had at least one year one of the boys was all excited until they had to go up to Santa & then it is like stage fright! I love the idea of the carrot cookies, but my kids always left real carrots, horrors if we didn't have any!
Happy Thanksgiving! ~Faythe @ GMT~
