A Treat for Daycare!

A few weeks ago, I made the final transition at daycare into the Turtledoves Preschool class, where I will theoretically stay for the next two years until I am ready for daycare...

We've been so busy lately that we haven't had time to do our customary "Treat for the Old Class!" So Dad and I finally got it together, and made the class our famous Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese Bars...they have been passed down from Gramma Debbie, and we have made them a bunch of times...Mom, Dad and I signed a Thank You card for the Beanstalks teachers, and then together we made the treat!
First, I cut the cookie dough (while testing a piece or two, for quality's sake) and laid the pieces along the bottom of the pan...while the bottom layer was cooking, Dad and I made the cream cheese mixture...not only did I get to put all the stuff in the mixer bowl (I even cracked the eggs, with Dad's help into a separate bowl first, since he wanted to be able to catch any shell pieces....the first egg had a couple shells in there, but the second was perfect) I also got to turn the mixer on! It mixes stuff really well!
We poured the cream cheese mixture on the cooked bottom layer of cookie dough (taking a couple tastes for quality's sake)...
Then we laid another layer of dough, taking a couple tastes...oh the heck with it...we knew the quality was good, we just decided that we wanted a sweet treat!
And then we baked it all together....after saving a few for ourselves, we delivered it to the Turtledoves class, along with the Thank You card, and pictures of me helping to was a lot of fun, and they told me later just how much they loved it! Since we didn't take any "after" pictures of the treat, I snagged one off of a blog called "Kellie's Kitchen" Thanks, Kellie! They looked like this:

And they were AWESOME. I will miss the Beanstalks, but after a hard transition, ended up having a great time with them...thanks!!!
