making homemade sugar cookies for Santa and Jesus!

Our festives began early Friday making my homemade sugar cookie dough so it could chill for awhile until ready for cookie cutting time. It is so easy to make these sugar cookies and I love that my son loves to bake right along with me. He loves to help roll out the dough with the rolling pin.

We made cookies both for Santa and Jesus. Santa got the snowman and Jesus the angel. We left a note for Santa and Jesus. All month my guy has been taking about Santa coming in a sleigh and Jesus parking his car in the garage. So the note he wanted me to write included both those thoughts to Santa and Jesus. Here at our house we have really talked about Jesus so he seems to think that Jesus will also come to our house when Santa is to come. I really like his thought process. Don’t ya just love the innocence of children? So precious!

After we placed our cookies by the fireplace we began our Holiday book reading! We have several books we have been reading but only a few we have pick for reading before Christmas Day! You can see both books in the above picture. One focuses on Jesus birth and the other is a classic Santa read. We all sat around the Christmas tree listening to daddy read to us all.
