Santa's Christmas Eve Menu

As we were bringing out all the Christmas decorations Jonah asked what was the plate for that was sitting on the end table by the fireplace. We told him it was for Santa's cookies and explained to him that on Christmas Eve you leave a plate of cookies and milk for Santa and after he eats them, he leaves you toys. Jonah thought about this for a minute and responded "Santa doesn't like cookies."

"What do you mean he doesn't like cookies?" I asked.

Note that Jonah is not a huge fan of sweets or really cookies except occasionally he will eat my mom's homeade chocolate chip cookies!

Jonah responded "Santa doesn't like cookies, he likes Mac and Cheese (Jonah's personal favorite)." "Oh!" I said. "Well, I guess we can leave Santa Mac and Cheese on Christmas Eve if you want."

So, at that point I had to step out of the living room for a minute and when I returned I saw on the table that Jonah had gone to the pantry, pulled out the box of Easy Mac and Cheese and put it on the plate!

Jonah ran up to me and said "Look Mommy! I left Santa Mac and Cheese!"
