I love it...what is it?

We have officially entered, "Christmas Break".
Monkey had his last day of Preschool for the year... and when I picked him up, I was handed a package from his teacher.
I knew immediately what it was.
Yep, I was right.
Inside contained one of those little ... Christmas creations that we all made as children. It doesn't matter the project, we just know its one of those... things that our kids make that we will treasure forever.
This is our first Christmas creation.
It hit me.... no matter how many times I change my Holiday decorations, this one thing will always be set out.
You all know what I'm talking about... you walk into a house and see how gorgeous their home is decorated... then you look closer...and you see these odd little, mangled .... well, you're not sure what it is... but, its... something. We then assume one of their kids made it.
Yep, I finally have my very own.
It happens to be a pinecone stuck into some sort of hard substance... painted.. and then some gold ribbon glued to it.
And then.... I pull out this item...

A cookbook!
Hooray for Teacher... how did she know that I collect cookbooks?
This cute little book is now my very favorite, to be treasured always, cookbook.
It is full of recipes from 3 year olds!

I'm swooning.... and giggling.
Can you read that recipe?
Mac & Cheese
You'll Need:
3 or something eggs
We burn it and stuff. It gets hot and stuff.
~Jacob (age 3)
Here's another one...
Hamburgers With Dad
You'll Need:
this many ketchup
this much mustard
Grab the buns. Grab the hamburger. Grab the mustard and ketchup. Grab the buns and put it on top of them.
~Boston (age 4)
To help with your Holiday baking...
Chocolate Cookies
You'll need:
what my grandma has, it was tasty
Cook 'em when they ding.
~Will (age 3)
See ladies... I don't know why you get so stressed over your Holiday baking. It's very easy. Just get what Grandma has. It's very tasty!
Here is my son's contribution.
You'll need:
2 pepperoni
1 sausage
2 cheese
3 crust
Cook it 10 minutes. Put it out of the oven. Cook another pizza.
~Monkey (age 3)
He got it sort of right... we always make two homemade pizzas.... one sausage and one pepperoni...
Isn't this the cutest little project?
I hope the other Moms enjoyed it as much as I did.
Now get your fanny back in the kitchen!
