Some Days Ellie Needs Cookes.

Some days Ellie needs cookies. And on those days she lets me know by pulling the giant Costco-sized container of animal crackers off the pantry shelf and carrying it into whichever room I happen to be in.
Then she sits down near me, making sure that I can see her, and unscrews the lid, then reaches in and takes a cookie.
She shoves it into her mouth,

and makes an exaggerated "MMMMMM!" sound.

Usually she puts the lid on the cookie container until she wants another, then opens it up and the process starts over. It's pretty funny to watch. First because the container is half the size that she is, yet she can carry it all over the house. Second because she knows how to get them for herself, yet feels that she MUST eat them in my presence. And third because she has yet to make a mess in this whole cookie process. That's pretty much the only reason she gets away with it. That and because she so cute when she does it.

That face is too cute! Who can resist?!

Some days I just need a cookie, too, but I usually sneak them while my kids aren't looking so I don't have to share... They're not animal crackers, either... :-)

Great post. I love the pictures for each stage of the cookie process.

I love those pictures. Especially the last one with the grin. That just says it all.
