If You Give a Girl a Cookie......

If you give a girl a cookie



she’ll probably ask to frost it.



After it’s frosted,




she’ll want to add sprinkles.



When it’s done,

it will look like this




And even though mom said no snacks,

chances are, she will eat it.




Once she’s finished,

she’ll want to read a Christmas book



if she can force mom to play along.



Once books are done,

she’ll probably want to watch a movie



even though she watched it today at school.

During the movie, she’ll ask for popcorn.



Mom will say no since we haven’t had dinner.



Dinner, she says? I want egg rolls, not steak.



When dinner is done, it reminds her that it’s time for a treat.

What treat? Ice cream, candy, cookies, fruit?



No fruit today, mom. I want a cookie.

And chances are if she asks for a cookie,



she’ll want to decorate it.



Does mom have the strength to do it again?

Can you identify the inspiration?? I own the whole series!

I love the Polar Express. It is my all time favorite holiday movie and I love watching it with my minnie mr. I am so jealous that you watched it tonight. My hiney was at the Tar-J doing some last minute Santa shopping. Oh, and eating some popcorn---gotta get over that popcorn. If the smell didn't hit you as soon as you walked in...its killin' me :)

So do we! Love those books...you're so clever with your posts, I do well just to get the facts down, maam.
And, about shopping today...it's called necessity! The kids still had presents to buy for us/each other and they needed a ride. :) I was able to finish shopping for dear hubby!

Kate said...

Love it! We have read those books over and over and over here! She's got it right... leave the pancakes and muffins for the animals and head straight to the sprinkled, frosted cookies!

I was having deva vu reading your post. Sounds like yesterday at our house (well, without the steak because I'm a vegetarian). Is that "If you give a mouse a cookie..." series? We don't have any but they sound cute...

Dawn said...

That is such a cute post! I bet the girls are having so much fun making and eating the cookies! You are a great mom!!

How are you? Oh I am not liking this "being to busy to thoroughly check out the blogs." I'm here catching up.
I'd love to bake cookies, but we've barely had time of late. Ridiculous!
Maybe I should just do holiday baking in Nov. and freeze.
I'm glad at least someone is decorating cookies. Could you stop by here with some of that goodness?? :)

Carrie said...

no I would like the steak please-well maybe a cookie on the side would be ok!

Sharon said...

Kristin,
The first two posts had me rolling! Very creative! However, regarding the MIA toilet paper...always a mystery in our house too.

I can only imagine what will happen to the TP once K starts using it. She already goes through paper towels like cookies:))

Yummy speaking of cookies, yep, if you give a girl a cookie, especially this girl, she has to have 2 and one waiting for breakfast!

Very cute,

Happy Holidays to you and your beautiful family.

Hugs,

Ivy
