Iris discovered a “real” banana (versus mashed up) and loves using her teeth to scrape off pieces to “chew” herself.
We were having dinner at Grandma and Grandpa Tam’s house for dinner but before we left, we baked some cookies for Santa. Simon helped with pouring the ingredients and shaping the cookies. It was the first time using our home’s oven for baking homemade cookies.
Simon saw this huge bag and could see the toy inside. It was his beloved crane that he asked for from Santa. We made up a little story for him so he would still think it was from Santa. We told him that the crane was too big to fit into Santa’s sleigh so he asked Gung Gung and Pau Pau to get it for him instead. He was super happy but we didn’t let him open it just yet.
When we got home from San Ramon, Simon set out some cookies and a drink for Santa. We ran out of milk earlier in the day so he gave his some mango smoothie instead. Earlier in the day, Simon colored a picture for Santa (next to his knee) so cut it out for Santa to take with him and wrote “Simon” so that Santa would know the cookies and drink were for him (on the plate).
