Bake Bake Bake... Bake Bake Bake..... Bake yo cookies...

Okay, it's sad when your family wants your brownies more than they want you....
My cousin told me that if I was not bringing brownies Saturday, then she was not even going to answer the door....LOL Tommorrow, I will be spending most of my day in the kitchen Baking Homemade Turtle brownies, 5 dozen sugar cookies, 4 cheesecakes (strawberry and chocalate swirl), and one sour cream pound cake. I love to bake, so I am not complaining. It is one of the many things I picked up from my Grandmother.....sure didn't get it from my mom. I wouldn't have her cook a cake for Goldie...LOL you know the types of cakes that look bad but really taste good, well, lets say my mom's cakes are the complete opposite....However, she can cook the most awesome pies and cobblers....

Here is a fun fact about me, when I cook....I have to have on music! It just motivates me and it makes me feel so good. I sing and cook! Ms. Jaree will be helping mommy, she is so very excited! She loves to bake and I will be giving her all of my recipes when she moves out and starts her own family. She is really serious when it comes to helping me. No playing around. I mean she really wants to help. Not just lick the bowl, like how I did when I was little....LOL. The bowl was serious business in our household. It has caused many fights between my brotheer and I. I think I got my first black eye over the left over cake batter. I wanted the spoon and the bowl and left my brother the mixer blades. He said it wasn't fair and that he should get the spoon too, because the bowl was bigger than both. I said "NO". We tugged over the spoon, he let go and it hit me right in the eye. Needless to say neither one of got a bowl, a spoon, or anything else. We actually got something else that had nothing to do with food.....LOL

Jaree has really developed a liking to baking and I want to nurture that....
Who knows she may be the next Ms. Fields....LOL

The boys like to watch! Even my 14year old. Loves to watch mommy cooking in the kitchen. Bugging the heck out of me, to see when it's all ready!!!!

Lots to do this weekend. I am going to shop for a pre-lit tree. Our Christmas tree has had it and dh wants a pre-lit tree. I am not too happy about it. I like to do everything when it comes to decorating, except for put the lights on.....Dh has to do this as well as the star, I guess that is why we are searching for a pre-lit tree.....LOL

I finally found my camera. I will post a pic of my great mail day the other day and Jaree's Christmas list! This girl must either think that she is the only child in the world that Santa's visiting or she has to be kidding. I kid you not she has 47 things on her Christmas list. It's sad to say that her dad will be getting atleast half of the stuff! He is such a sucker for Jaree! She is a total Daddy's girl!

The boys list were short and sweet. But very expensive. Can you say Camcorder, New Hi tech stereo, Psp, and 4 games for Psp. Those four things right there are 1000 dollars. These kids have to think money grows on trees and sad to say, we will end up getting all of this crap! We are suckers when it comes to Christmas and Birthdays. Then our kids get "Summer toys" too! Am I crazy or what? Then not to mention, everytime I take a trip to Wal-Mart, some way or another I end up with a xbox game or bratz doll in my cart! Go figure.

We are definitely in the Christmas spirit. I watched "A Christmas Story" four times already and Home Alone twice. " I can't put my arm's down" " You'll shoot your eye out kid" My favorite lines from the Christmas story. I can watch this movie a million times. Also, I love National Lampoon's Christmas vacation with Chevy Chase and Beverly De Angelo.....I think that has to be the funniest movie ever made.... " Squirrrreeeelllllllll!!!!!......." LOL

Well, it's time for me to go, I definitely have caught the silly bug tonight. Usually happens when I am sleepy.....LOL

Good night!!!

Cheryl Wray said...

Oh my goodness--all your baked goodies sound wonderful!! I can't believe you are making so much! Your kitchen is going to smell so GOOD!!! (wish i could smell it!)
Thank goodness, our girls never give us too long of lists. This year, McKenna just said she wanted a gift card to the mall. Sounds good to me, but then of course I'll go buy her lots of other "little" things (clothes, books, Cds). I'm pretty good about not going overboard, but my DH always looks at what I've bought and says "They've got to have more under the tree!" He's a sucker! LOL

Oh Dana Hon! You can't do this to us - we can practically smell those turtle brownies! Hope you and Jaree have a fun baking day. Turn up the tunes and have a blast!

ermm....so I guess your kids know there's no santa but mommy and daddy with huge wad of cash right!!! LOL

There's no way to NOT be a sucker to your kids...you only live once and eventually they move out so when is the right time to spoil them but now!!!!!!

I think you need to post a picture of all your baking! If we can't eat it at least we could see it!! Too bad there's not such thing as smell-o-vision. I baked gingersnaps the other day and the smell was heavenly!

Way to go on the baking, girl. And I recommend a pre-lit tree. It's been one of the best things we ever did. Dealing with the light cords make me claustrophic for some reason....
