Baking by Squirrel Shadow

Do you like baking?  I love baking.  Whenever I go to my Grandmothers house I always bake with her and we make cakes and cookies.  My favorite cookies that we would make have peanut butter with a Hershey Kiss in the middle.  My Mom and Dad really like this one cake called a, “Black Bottom Cheese Cake”.  It’s a chocolate cake with cream cheese swirls.  It is so delicious.  Whenever we bake I always ask if I can “clean” the bowl and when my grandmother says, “yes”, I grab a giant spoon and scrape the bowl until there isn’t anything left!

One time she asked me if I would help her make “Chicken Pot Pie” and obviously I said, “yes”.  I love to cook and bake with my grandmother.  Everybody in my family loves her baking so every Christmas, Easter and Family Birthday she packs a box full of sweets and a letter to each of us and sends it to my family.

On Thanksgiving I always bake, cook and clean with my Mom and Grandmothers.  Their cooking is the best.  I love baking!

Christmas Moments by The Happy Girl

I like the day of Christmas because on Christmas morning, I quickly ran to the Christmas tree that me and my mom had decorated to see my presents. While my mom is still sleeping, I sneak to see if my presents are under the Christmas tree that my mom placed the night before while I was sleeping.

I quickly place two more presents under the Christmas tree, my mom’s and my dog’s presents. My mom’s present is usually a beautiful bracelet or necklace that I made for her and a beautiful card that I have written with Christmas wishes for her. My dog’s presents are her special and most favorite dog biscuits.

When my mom wakes up, together we quickly run to the Christmas tree to see my presents but surprisingly she sees other gift bags. The ones I have placed under the Christmas tree while my mom was sleeping.

Suddenly, we look one another and we give a huge hug, a big kiss, and a giant smile to each other. Then we happily open our presents.
