49 - Christmas Rules

Week 49 - Monday 12/4 to Sunday 12/10

Saturday afternoon. The family is gathered for the annual lunch celebrating (the dog) Frankie’s birthday party. Family Christmas photos are taken and Jackie's mom is putting the finishing touches on fresh strawberry stuffed cupcakes, topped with her amazing whipped pastry cream. Fortunately for Jackie, mom was raised in a loving, practical environment that understands that there are basic rules of etiquette. One of the most important rules is that during the holidays, no utensil used to prepare, decorate or serve any seasonal pastry, pudding, cake, pie or other dessert can be put in the dishwasher before it is thoroughly licked by a child. Rules are rules.
