We all stayed up trying to find the gingerbread man. All of got so tired we all fell asleep. When we were asleep the gingerbread man all came out and hide from us. Gingy hid in my mansion gingerbread house, Cinnamon hid in the oven and Oreo he hid in the garbage disposal. We could not find them, it took us 5 days to find the gingerbread men. When I was at grandma's I got so hungry so I decided to eat the gingerbread house I ate and ate and ate until I was stuffed. I took one more bit into one of the walls and found Gingy. Gingy almost got away but I snached him and put him in a ziplock baggy. That night grandma was going to make brownies for after supper. I helped with everything, when we got done with making it we stuck it in the oven. When grandma opened the oven Cinnamon jumped clear out of the oven. He jumped off grandma's shoulder and into my arms. So we stuck Cinnamon in a different ziplock baggy so Gingy wouldn't get out. Me and grandma made a big dinner for the family. I was done and I was putting my food into the garbage disposal and I heard “HELP ME,” said

    My dad has this motto “Never Give Up” and I've always thought that mottoes are just something people say to make themselves sound cool and smart, until I had my own experience that taught me I should “Never Give Up” on things. I loved baking since I was young, so when I turned ten, my mother bought me a professional oven. I was extremely happy so I decided to bake a cake, which is something I've never tried before. I went to buy the ingredients with my mother at the supermarket. I tried my best to follow the steps on the recipe, but I accidentally burnt the cake.…

    She also bought an average-sized freezer to store even more food. The freezer is always full of the old and new meats. (It seems like all the food markets will be closing tomorrow.) It is always hard for me to find a way to put a small bag of bacon into the freezer; I have to arrange everything in the freezer to find the appropriate small space for a mere bag. After two or three days, I sometimes cannot find the bag, and it turns out that the day before that, my great-aunt put the bacon in the Walmart recycle bag at the bottom of the freezer to save more space for her new meats.…

    In the morning we would take our glass containers to the little store to get milk and sour cream. The sour cream was very dense that we could have made butter out of it. I remember that it would take my mom almost all day to prepare a meal. Then she would stay up late at night to wait for the water to come since the water came sporadically only at night, and only for couple of hours. My mom would wash the dishes, wash the floors and filled containers with water for the next day.…

    After we were tired again and it was around 4:30 we headed back to our rooms with our candy so no one else could take some out of ours to eat it. I soon fell into a light sleep after the sugar high went away, me and my brother would wait until we heard our parents start to wake up or my dads alarm go off, since it was christmas my dad wouldn’t have to go to work until 8 o’clock. We heard Nate get up to go get his stocking, he always woke up later than me and Owen we usually kidnap something small out of his stocking to eat like a chocolate santa or some peeps. He went back to his room we could tell the difference between him and our parents, is he was much light his footsteps were also quieter. We finally heard my mom get up to go make coffee, we all hopped out of bed to go pester her if we could open…

    My mother makes her cupcakes differently and for some reason, my little cousins would love it. I believe most people used cake batter but mother would mix both cornbread mix and cake batter together. Then she would add these sort of like rainbow colored sprinkles into the then batter then add the eggs. After this, she would then put them in the oven for like an hour, and she would cover them in pink icing. I thought this was the nastiest thing ever until I tried them one time.…

    My Emotions Of Childhood

    We visited and had family over and I watched my mom prepare dinner for a small during Thanksgiving. I hated that during Thanksgiving I would watch my mother would put this ginormous turkey in the oven at night and then I would go to bed expecting that I could help, or at least watch when she resumed, only for me to wake up and find that the entire dinner was just about complete. I don’t know if she prepared dishes during the week or if she only pretended to go to bed so that I could get out of her way, probably the latter, but she prepared it all with no help. The tradition was that my mom would slave for hours, sleep for minutes, and serve everyone at dinner time; I definitely inherited that from her. Christmas was smaller, the siblings would come by to collect gifts and grab something to eat but there was still a tremendous sense of family, those were the best times of the year.…
