These cookies my daughter bakes are soooo good. I never eat them; I flee them; they’re dangerous. But she insists that I must try. Reluctantly, I relent. They have more than chocolate chips: marshmallows and crackly red and green sugar crystals. Needless to say, the exquisite ecstasy produced instantaneous addiction. I threatened to NOT stop with the broken cookies. I would need a 12-step program to break off gobbling them up
One menacingly look from Rebekah was enough to deter me. When she was younger, she obeyed me. It’s biblical. But now that she is 16 years old, I have to obey her. No one warned me this switcheroo would happen. She’s enough for anyone to go cold turkey. As Rob’s friends know well, you don’t mess with Rebekah.
Becky has been making me feel less Grinch-like. When I was missionary in Guatemala, I was a gringo. But now, I’m a Grinch. Making the transition from belt-tightening missions to spendthrift USA has not been intuitive. She plays Christmas carols incessantly and prevailed on my wife to get a Christmas tree. So the effects have been to put me in the mood. And now, I just wanna wish everybody a Merry Christmas! My Savior was born (probably not on this date), and He could be your Savior too!
Maybe we should report those cookies to DEA. You might be dreaming of a white Christmas, but I’m dreaming about green and red sugar crystals.
I love that spelling of “Rebekah.” Cute photos!
Hebrew based spelling
You remind me of an elf. That’s an “awwww….” (smiles)
Merry Christmas, Mom.
Thank you. You too.

Yeaaa I am so glad you got a tree!!!! She mentioned you did not have one and I thought we were going to have to deliver one anomalously. Rebekah is a blessing and such a good girl! Christmas is one big Birthday party for Jesus, it last a month at our house 🙂
Wow Tesha! It has been exactly 50 kabillion years, 73 months, 11 weeks, 19 days, 13 hours, and 64 minutes since your last comment! Good to still see you around the blogosphere! God bless! I might venture to say her cookies rival yours. Watch out for them!
