Mother's Day 2011

We celebrated Mother's Day in a simple way and we celebrated it at home ~ baked cookies with my kids! What makes it more special? I heard my kids talking bout their plans for Mother's Day and that is to bake cookies as a surprise gift for me but the problem is that they don't know how to do it! I was laughing out loud but Wakaba and Haruka melts my heart! It may no longer a surprise gift for me by lending a hand but baking delicious treats with them brings joy and happiness! And the most important of it all, they enjoyed what they do~ from cracking the eggs into the bowl, sifting the flour, mixing the batter and the dough. Believe it or not, they did it themselves~ I only supervised them on what to do, did the cutting of the cookie dough and of course, cleaning the MESS. Lol ! They wanted to wrap the cookies beautifully just like they did to their Dad's gift last Valentine' Day but it ended up as our afternoon snack for the day ^_^
Wakaba says to her sissy Haruka: ' Wait for your turn, Haruka chan! ' while sifting the flour
Haruka says to her big sissy: ' Oneechan, don't lick it! It's still a powder! ' LOL!
Mom says: ' Be careful not to overmix the dough, Wakaba chan '

Haruka chan, doing her part

The vanilla dough and cocoa dough is being ' smooshed ' to make the marble effect

..... and rolled into a log, wrapped into a plastic and chilled for hours

Messy hands and joyful faces
The cookies may not be in a perfect circle, they did a lovely present for me!
Marble cookies~ made with love of my kids fresh from the oven ^_^

Awwww... making those marble cookies looked like a lot of fun. I remember when my nanay used to let me and my bro help her in the kitchen. I guess that's why we're both into food and cooking now. :)

Yes, what can be more endearing for a mother than to see her kids do something for her, in this case, bake cookies. Just to see your kids really try hard to please you would be heaven itself. Your kids are very loving and thoughtful. You were able to raise them well Clarissa. Thanks for the touching post. God bless you all always.
