"Santa... who? More cookies, please!"
Santa specifically requested coffee and snickerdoodles from the Jones family, this year. So, on Christmas Eve you "helped" put out a plate of cookies and a mug of coffee (one Splenda, please!) in anticipation of St. Nick. The cookies were oh, so tempting to you, Katy! Suffice it to say that Santa didn't get all of the cookies that we had originally laid out for him!
Thanks Uncle Rob and Aunt Julie for capturing our cookie monster in action! :-)
