Rufus's New Year Story

It's New Year's eve and I've had my bath but before I go to bed I've an important job to do. Time to make 'man'. Daddy calls them by a much longer name but that is too much for me.
First of all we must bash the spices, smells nice but tastes too strong.
then after mummy does lots of bits in the kitchen, she brings in the squishy squashy dough. Time to get rolling. "Nanny flour, more flour" sticky squishy squashy dough rolled out. I get the man shape and with Nanny & Mummy's help to push we cut out the shape and put them on the tray. Can't eat them until they have been in the oven and got hard.
Time to decorate. Dollop of Icing and lots of chocolate sprinkles and a few jelly beans. Must give him a face, Nanny cut some eyes from a black sweet and I pop them in place. Now to eat them. Mummy has one, Nanny has a Tree, Nana has a star. Must take one to Daddy.
YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY.

That's a lovely thing to do on New Year's Eve. I bet the smell lingered all through the night. The photographs really add to the story.
Wishing you a Happy New Year!

Your story warmed my heart - I can just her a little voice saying "squishy squashy dough."
Enjoy Rufus in 2012.

Oh baking biscuits with small people is always great fun - love the shots giving the process too. They tell the story but having it told from Rufus's point of view is wonderful too.
