Its Starting to Look a lot Like Christmas

Standard

Alyssa has asked me quite a few times in the last week when we are going to get a christmas tree. Considering its still November and 70 degrees out I was trying to hold out a little longer. But she is at that age where she is just so excited about Christmas. She asks me every night if we can make cookies for Santa now. She wants to make our healthy banana cookies for him “since he has a big belly and doesn’t need too many unhealthy cookies”. She said if he gets cookies at everyones house, that is too many special treats for one night. I like her thinking. So before dinner tonight we satisfied her Christmas itch and went to pick out a tree!

After dinner we kind of back peddled holidays and had some pumpkin pie for dessert.  I made a healthy version. It doesn’t have crust (I’m not a pie crust fan, neither is Dave) and has very little sugar. Just enough to satisfy the craving.
