Caption It: Santa's Here for the Cookies

Take it from the cast of The Kitchen: You don't have to be a kid to find the joy in Santa Claus. The jolly guy stopped by the set of this morning's all-new episode, and the co-hosts could hardly contain themselves as he walked in with one of his reindeer, Rocket. This week's episode theme was all about holiday cookies, and since Santa surely has a penchant for milk and cookies, he couldn't help but be merry either.

Take a peek at the all-new photo above. Sunny Anderson, Jeff Mauro, Marcela Valladolid and Geoffrey Zakarian are seemingly overcome with excitement, while Rocket, who's showing off a bit of unmistakable side-eye, seems less sure of what's going down.

We’re challenging you, The Kitchen fans, to  write your best captions (tastefully appropriate, please) for this moment in the comments below.
