The 5 stages of holiday baking

1. Denial
I’ll just buzz around the kitchen and get this done in no time since I’m not baking anything complicated.

2. Anger
Miró, quit licking the counter! Alanis, get your nose out of the cupboard!

3. Bargaining
Here, take these chewies and go outside.

4. Depression
You're done already? Gurg.

5. Acceptance

You want to smear your nose all over the spice jars? Fine, they’re closed. If you get burned from hovering so close to the oven, I don’t care; it’s your own fault. Do what you want. I’m sure no one will notice a little dog hair in their cookies.

Resistance is futile.


  1. We are laughing, cuz that is the scene at our house every time the oven gets turned on..haha!
    We did the dog cookies a few days the human ones...always with Airedale assistance and persistence.

  2. Hmmm..wait until they have cooled! We did have a bit of success with cookies in our house the other day!LOL

  4. Hey, we always have lots of dog hair in evrything we cook here. It's a given. To get your award Sherry, go to my blog archives, click on Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner. Copy and paste the award. Then tell ten things about Alanis and Milo people might not know. Next pass on the award to 6 other bloggers letting them know they have gotten it. You can just follow my post. Easy peasy! Merry Christmas!
