Thank you to everyone who visited and left comments in the "Tis More Blessed Giveaway hosted by Milo James Fowler. The winner of my two books is Janie Junebug! Congratulations, Janie!
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!
Congratulations to Janie.
He comes up with some creative solutions, that's for sure!Delete
I would love to see what he does with a cookie cake!
