Dear Grandpa Lanier, Happy (belated) birthday!
We LOVE celebrating birthdays, especially yours! You asked for cookies, right?
Cookies it is! Actually, Grandpa, we LOVE cookies, so we were really glad you asked for them. We set out to make you the best cookies we could manage, all by ourselves (mostly).
And while we baked, we learned.
We were really focused for a record amount of time.
The best part, of course, was adding the chocolate chips.
We might have tasted a few white chocolate chips -- just to make sure they were good for you, Grandpa.
Yep, they're good.
So we entered the final stages of our multi-step cookie project, thinking about how much we wished we could be there to see you taste one.
But we'll have to wait for that. And in the meantime, we'll keep baking. Because we can. And because, really, we think we're good bakers.
We even helped clean up.
