Light Up Micanopy was great again this year. The kids sang in their school performance and entered their cookies in the cookie bake-off. Kaity did red velvet whoopie pies. They looked very pretty but the cookies weren't the right proportion to the filling.
Will entered pumpkin cookies with cream cheese frosting. It was his cookie idea and he did most of the mixing and dolloping although I had to frost them all. He ended up winning overall cookie and won $8. He was very excited.
The kids also met the "real" Santa. It's the grandpa of one of our 4-Hers and he really looks like the real Santa. He's got a fantastic costume and great beard. Both the kids are really into Santa this year. I think it will be the last year for Santa for Will but this year he REALLY believes. When he wrote his letter, he said he wanted "elf shoos." When I asked him why, he said "because no one else will think to ask for that, so I'll probably get it." Which means this Santa had to think fast and come up with elf shoes. They should be delivered today. He also has repeatedly asked Santa for a Wii to replace the one that was stolen. He also helped Kaity write her letter and sealed it before I had a chance to read it. Not sure what it said, but I know she asked for bouncy balls.
