Phaedra Parks may be willing to air her marriage problems on The Real Housewives of Atlanta on a weekly basis, but when it comes to her sons, Ayden 3, and Dylan, almost 8 months, the protective mama keeps things more private. Sure, her “little prince” and “Mr. President” are featured on the show from time to time, but Phae-Phae seldom shares other details about her boys, rarely snapping cute photos of them or mentioning them on social media.

However, the reality star made a slight exception in honor of the recent Christmas holiday. Though you can’t see Aden’s face in any of the pictures, Phaedra did share a series of photos of her and her eldest son decorating cookies to leave out for Santa. “Santa we are ready!!! Happy Holidays,” she wrote on Christmas day alongside photos of the cute snowman and Christmas tree cookies the duo made for Santa.

In the most adorable of the three photos, we see the back of little Ayden’s head as he looks at the treats and drink he’s made for Mr. Claus. Phaedra didn’t post any info about Christmas gifts, but with a plate of sweets like that we’re sure Santa was very pleased and left a ton of toys for Ayden and Dylan to open on Christmas morning.
