I'll do the giveaway again this Friday, so please stop by for another chance to win.
Now for the story:
'Tis the season for baking Christmas cookies. Yesterday, I made cut out cookies - sugar cookies in fancy shapes, decorated with way too many sprinkles. When they had cooled, by kids naturally wanted to try some.
"One cookie," I said.
They each grabbed the biggest one they could find.
My son, who had taken a bell-shaped cookie, started meticulously biting into it. I watched him, fascinated. After he had taken a few bites, he showed me the result. "A moose," he announced.
"Nice," I said.
He munched some more. After a few more bites, he held up a star.
"Pretty good," I said.
Finally, he munched his way to a circle. "A snowball."
He plopped that thing into his mouth. "I didn't have one cookie, Mama. I had four!"
What a genius!
