Cookies, Milk & My Letter to Santa

Milk, Cookies, and Letter to Santa Wicked Goodies

True story! When I was six years old, I wrote this letter to Santa:

Letter to Santa Wicked Goodie

The letter came in this envelope:

Letter to Santa Wicked Goodies (2)

Which was full of clippings of toys that I wanted.

Toy Clippings

For the record, I ended up getting the Easy Bake Oven a year later. I remember watching my dad make some tiny, weird-tasting cakes in that hot plastic oven.

First Gingerbread House

Here is the second gingerbread house that I ever made, age 12.

First Gingerbread House

The first gingerbread house that I made broke so many times during the building process that I cried and ended up Elmer’s gluing it together.

Here was my first gingerbread house replica that I ever made at age 13. It was a collaboration project with my brother. We built a cookie and candy house to look like this Vermont A-frame.

I hope you enjoyed this look back in time when Wicked Goodies was just a kid building gingerbread houses.
