Easter Cookie Therapy

(For those of you who skim, there’s a video at the bottom with some speech fun, if you’re into that kind of thing. )

Yesterday we did some fun things that also made me work hard with my hands.

First we got our stuff together that we would need.  And we got excited!

Then we counted a little and put the squares on the pan.  They were a little sticky.

Then we put the squares in the oven.

After the squares had turned into to cookies in the oven, we came back and got ready to put frosting on them.  Mommy didn’t want us messy, so we did frosting with naked body.

KiKi started first.  She put her fingers in the cup Mommy gave us that had frosting in it, then she put it on her cookie. Like paint.

She did a pretty good job.  And she even licked her finger and said it was “YUMMY!”

KiKi showed me how to do it. 
“Stick your finger in the frosting, Braska.”

”Well, this is not fun at ALL!”

I tried to paint like KiKi did.

I even tried to lick the frosting because Mommy wanted me to do that, too. I wasn’t too happy about it, though.

”Mommy please clean my hand.  Too sticky.”

”Can you hurry, Mommy?  Get it off!”

”If I sit here and hold my hand really still, maybe the sticky stuff will go away.”

Finally Mommy cleaned my hand, and I was done with all that.  KiKi did the next part. Sprinkles.  I think she liked it!

Oops!  She dropped the sprinkles on her cookie!

Mommy helped me do my sprinkles, since the container was kind of hard for me to hold.

KiKi ate her cookies. She said they were “Sooooo YUMMY!”  I didn’t eat mine.  Mommy didn’t seem surprised.

We did have some silly fun at the table, though.  Mommy tried to get me to eat my cookies, but I’m good at helping her think about other things so she will forget to want me to eat.  See how sneaky I can be in the movie here…

(Mommy note: Don’t miss the first part…it’s quick, but Braska does a very rare spontaneous question on camera.  That she does it is not rare, that it was caught on video…priceless. Also later, spontaneous rendition of You Are My Sunshine.)

We had lots of fun, even if I didn’t want to eat stuff. 

Happy Easter!!
