Help In The Kitchen

As I'm cutting out "The Best Butter Cookie Ever" for tonight's Christmas Eve party, I feel a tug on my apron.  I look down and I see this lovely girl, begging for a chance to help.

My teenagers are upstairs sound asleep, my husband is in the shower, but I am not alone.  Emma Beagle is positive I could use a little bit of help with the rolling out of dough.  Or taste testing the dough.  Helpful stuff like that.....

And so after the cookies were cooled off (she can't eat anything hot otherwise she gets sick and it is the bane of her existence on pancake mornings), she got a tiny cookie of her very own.

It was like giving a Mouse a cookie.....she asked for a glass of milk and another cookie.


  1. Merry Christmas, Michelle! Give Emma Beagje a cookie from me :)

  2. Oh, I have three eager helpers at my house. They have been at my heels and under foot for DAYS. Hope you and Emma and the rest of the family had a Merry Christmas.
