Secret Helpers!

Tonight, while I was working on a project in my room, Madison and her friend Brianna asked to bake a cake. Since Madison has done this several times, I said it was fine and stayed in my room, just listening. After a little while, I began to realize that I didn't smell the cake yet. Instead I was smelling something else. Although I was hesitant to ask, I called Madison in my room to ask if she needed help. She assured me that everything was "under control" and that the cake was almost done. About an hour after this venture began, both girls returned to my room with a scarf to cover my eyes.

Apparently the "cake" was a surprise. When I was walked into the kitchen (blindfolded) they uncovered my eyes to show me a clean kitchen with a special treat. They made Rice Krispy Treats.

The message read, "I (heart) love U. There was a #1 on the Rice Krispy Treat but it was written with food coloring so it accidentally smeared.

Both girls worked really hard and I am very proud of their willingness to provide an act of love without being asked! It was very sweet and they did a great job cleaning the kitchen!

**Big points for Madison and Brianna!
