Hello, it’s me, Lily!

Are you having a great weekend? We are! Next week we’re going on a vacation and I’m going to miss a whole week of school and part of my ELM project. Do you know what I’m doing for my ELM project? I have to research a certain animal from the assigned area my teacher gives me. She gave me the Arctic, and I got to pick the Arctic Fox. Guess what? I really do know what the fox says!! The regular fox and the arctic fox make the same sound I’m guessing. It’s like a high-pitched bark. It is really cool!

You know what else is really cool? These Frosted Cake Mix Lemon Cookies we made this week!!! They are scrumptious! I really like lemon and loved the frosting too. They are really easy also. I think you’ll love them just like we did.

Here is the recipe:

If you like lemon, make this recipe!

It has sour power!! But not really because they’re not sour. 😉

I hope you can come back again soon for more yummy treats from me.

Love, Lily
