   With Christmas weeks away, Santa visited Green Lake early to hear the wishes of good boys and girls, and spread Christmas cheer.

   Green Lake Town Square hosted its annual Cookies with Santa event last week Saturday with Mr. and Mrs. Claus in attendance.

   Families visited Santa with children whispering the gifts they want this year.

   The event also featured a crafts table at which kids created snowmen, angels and snowflakes that they showed off to their parents and to Santa.

   Another table held cookies the youngsters could frost and decorate with sprinkles and colored icing, though none wanted to share with Santa.
