Tuesday Teatime

Teatime took place in the living room next to the Christmas tree.

Our menu was hot chocolate (in Christmas mugs) and Reindeer Nose Cookies (on Christmas plates). We had purchased the cookies Monday at the zoo; Kid2 had seen them in the gift shop and commented that we should get them for Tuesday teatime.

(An aside: Parking in the parking lots was free at the zoo on Monday. I don't know if that was due to the crummy weather. Maybe they figured that whoever showed up could just park wherever they want?)

And our reading? Need I even tell you what it was? Twas the Night Before Christmas, of course. This was followed by several pages of The Story of Santa Claus.

Teatime is a great way to take a break during the holiday!

Okay. It's now quite obvious that I spend too much time with kids. When I read 'reindeer nose cookies' my brain said 'reindeer NOSE cookies'... and when I clicked on the link in your post, I expected to see something green.

If you only knew how stuffed up my nose is this morning, and how hard I laughed at that....

Thanks. Now every time I blow my nose or sneeze I'm gonna be thinking about Nose Cookies. Hee.

I love the cookies! What an adorable idea. Although after reading the comments I'm not so sure I'll be able to get the alternate visual out of my mind.
Hope your nose feels better soon!
