the truth is written all over her face

On Friday morning soon after I woke up, I baked four dozen chocolate chip cookies for our local MOPS Rummage & Bake Sale that was happening the next day. While the cookies cooled on the cooling racks, and I had set up a video for the kiddos, I jumped in the shower. While putting on my makeup, Mikayla walked in and it was then that I noticed a tiny (but still noticeable) hint of chocolate on her face...


When I asked her if she had eaten a cookie, she stopped, grinned, tried to lick it off her face, said no, and ran away. Hmmm...seems a bit guilty to me.

Throughout the morning, I tried to get the real truth out of her, just for curiosity sake. I thought it was more comical than anything, but she continued to say that she hadn't eaten one, but every time I asked, she hid her face and said no.

Still a bit suspicious.

At nap time, after our usual routine of reading a book, singing our songs, and kisses, I decided to try one more time and I asked her if she had eaten a cookie. She looked at me with a little glimmer in her eye and said, "I don't think so?"

At least we're getting closer to the truth...

************************************************

And, speaking of chocolate...Austin decided to partake in some generic Cocoa Puffs the other morning after a trip to the Dollar Tree. (Mikayla insisted on choosing this for a snack and passed up on a princess coloring book. Seriously!?)

Note to self: Not a good idea. Way too much of a mess. You should have seen his hands.

Gotta love those kids. Maybe she only had a bite of the cookie.

Cute! I made cookies around Christmas and left them on the counter to cool. I walked through the kitchen and noticed one cookie with a big bite out of it sitting on the cooling rack! I knew from the messy face which boy had swiped a bite...and he wouldn't fess up either!

Hmmmm, maybe she will always give it away by hiding her face!!

I cracked up when I saw Austin's face! I thought he had got into the cookies too and went to town with them!

In Mikayla's defense who can really resist the smell of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies? I'm a fully grown person and I know I would not have been able to resist!

The "I don't think so?" answer was pretty creative! Gotta give her that!

Those are some chocolate lovers aren't they! Mine will say things like, "No mama I think maybe yes," when I catch her in the act.
