Day 1 Mistletoe Make and Bake Blog Tour

Today is the first day of the Mistletoe Make and Bake!
Starting off the fun is Sherri Falls of This and That.
She has a super duper cute "Wish List" project for you.
She is giving away a pack of 8 of her new patterns.
I want to win them!!! LOL but I can't.
In addition, there will be a grand prize drawing, so be sure to comment on each blog each day to enter the grand prize drawing.
Be sure to check out Sherri's blog for her project of the day.
As part of the fun, each of us will be posting cookie recipes and a short topic each day.

**************
My first recipe for the tour is Bird's Nest Cookies.
My husband and I, yes husband and I, started making these a few years ago.
You see he's mainly the chef/baker.
I occasionally go on a streak of baking or cooking...occasionally.
LOL
I am really lucky to have him.

**************
Do you believe in Santa Claus?
 I believe that Santa was a real person, St Nicholas.
 When people fill the stocking of their sleeping children and leave gifts for kids they are merely continuing the memory of a great and kind person.
I have been asked atleast 50X this weekend when Santa Claus is coming. Try telling a 3 year old they have to wait another month! Let me do the math..50 X 41 days to go...is 2050 times being asked when Santa is coming to town. Whew.

Of course I believe in Santa...when you stop believing, he stops giving! And the best way I've found with toddlers is an advent calendar of some sort, particularly if it involves a little treat each day...it teaches patience if nothing else.

Fortunately, we have some milestones to pass before Christmas - from today, we have Thanksgiving, Lilli's birthday, and then Christmas. She's really more concerned about when her birthday is! Also, have you seen The Elf On The Shelf? A great holiday tradition that might help with that constant questioning. I know you can get it at Books-A-Million....
