They tasted better than they looked.

I had good intentions of making some cute & clever, woodland animal sugar cookies for Christmas last week, but my heart just wasn't in it. After I baked the 12 or so dozen cookies on Tuesday, the idea of frosting all of them seemed overwhelming - along with the 100 other things that needed to be done before Christmas. Ugh. So needless to say, these are not my finest creations. Martha Stewart would not be impressed. But they tasted good. I should know, I think I ate a dozen squirrels myself.
Halfway through Christmas Eve (and at least 3 gallons of Jingle Juice cocktails later), the cookie messages started getting re-arranged by the 23 Weishaars who had gathered at my brother's house. Good thing it stopped before things got X-rated.

Dear Santa, can you come a little early?

Gus and Bea put in a extra-special request this year to have Santa come a few days early. They were really surprised to find the living room full of presents after school on Wednesday. Gus got his much anticipated Alien HQ Lego set and Nintendo 3DS. And Bea's favorite gift was the super-silky-soft blue bunny that's been on her list for months. (What is it with my kids and stuffed animals? They love 'em.) She also got a cool, purple bicycle, but I think she was more excited about the helmet and waterbottle that came with it. Typical girl... it's all about the accessories.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Love &  Ho Ho Ho - Eric, Sandra, Gus & Bea Denneler
