The kids came into the kitchen with me today to do a little cooking .  We made sugar cookies in a cup.


Sugar Cookie in a Cup

created by Melissa at No. 2 Pencil

1 Tablespoon of Butter

2 Tablespoon of Granulated White Sugar

1/4 Teaspoon of Pure Vanilla Extract

Small pinch of Kosher Salt

Yolk of one Egg

3 Tablespoons of All-Purpose Flour

Colored Sugar for sprinkling

Melt butter in microwave, then add sugar, vanilla and salt and stir together. Add one egg yolk and stir again. Add flour and stir a final time.  Sprinkle cookie dough with colored sugar, and heat in microwave for about 45 seconds. Start checking for doneness at 40 seconds.

Serve warm and enjoy!


Gage’s grandmother , Mary Jeffries, asked could she come today and share their German heritage of how they celebrate Christmas.  She taught the children some words in German like thank you , goodbye and hello.  She even brought a nativity set that they use at home  !   I had no idea Mary was German !  Thank you Mary for sharing with us why you celebrate Christmas.





















Some of you may see coloring sheets in your cubby today. No, I havent lost it !   Some of the kids were talking yesterday about what activities they would like available on the table and someone said ” color Santa.”  Coloring sheets are not evil and sometimes serve a good purpose . One reason I sometimes enjoy coloring sheets is the conversation that takes place when you do it with friends.




I think this was the first time a coloring sheet has been placed out this year in our setting .  Some of them are pros  already !





















Christmas program invitations are in your cubby !   You may invite whoever you would like !

Children will need to be at the Jones Recital Hall on the campus of John Brown University at 250 completely dressed and sitting with you in the audience !   Show starts at 3 pm !
