IT WAS THE SATURDAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS. MOTHER AND FATHER WERE SHOPPING. VIOLET WAS MAKING A NAPKIN HOLDER FOR MOTHER. ARTHUR WAS WATCHING THE SNOW FALL.
“WELL, I ONLY HAVE FIFTY-TWO CENTS,” SAID ARTHUR. “ I BOUGHT TWO SLIM JIMS FOR TWENTY CENTS AND A BIG BUDDY FOR A NICKLE. THEN I WAS THIRSTY, SO I GOT A TEN-CENT SODA. AFTER THAT, I GOT A LOLA FINOLA COMIC. THE LAST TWO PENNYS FELL OUT OF MY POCKET. THEN THEY ROLLED INTO A CRACK ON THE PORCH. AND NOW I CAN’T GET THEM OUT.”
“TWO CENTS IS NOT ENOUGH FOR PRESENTS ANYWAY,” SAID VIOLET. “I KNOW,” SAID ARTHUR. “I MADE FATHER A CLAY PAPERWEIGHT,” SAID VIOLET. “I DRIED IT IN MY BAKE-E-Z OVEN.” “MAYBE I SHOULD TRY TO MAKE SOMETHING ELSE,” SAID ARTHUR. “ IF YOU LET ME USE YOUR BAKE-E-Z OVEN,I COULD BAKE SOME COOKIES.”
ARTHUR AND VIOLET WORKED VERY HARD ON THEIR COOKIES.THEY FOUND ALL THE INGREIDIENTS THEN MIXED THEM TOGETHER IN A LARGE BOWL. AFTER THAT THEY PUT THEM IN VIOLET’S BAKE-E-Z OVEN. THEY WERE COOKED IN JUST ENOUGH TIME TO HIDE THEM FROM MOTHER AND FATHER.
ON THE MORNING OF CHRISTMAS ARTHUR GAVE THE COOKIES TO HIS PARENTS. THEIR FACES HAD A SOUR, DISCUSTED LOOK ON THEM. “ARTHUR!!!!WHAT DID YOU DO TO THESE COOKIES!” SAID HIS PARENTS. VIOLET PICKED UP A COOKIE AND TOOK A BITE. “EWE! ARTHUR, I THINK WE FORGOT THE SUGAR!” “I’M SO SORRY” SAID ARTHUR.HE RAN UP TO HIS ROOM AND SLAMMED THE DOOR.
AFTER A WHILE ARTHUR’S MOMMY WENT UP TO HIS ROOM HOLDING A COOKIE. “NOW NOW ARTHUR NO NEED TO CRY. I PUT FROSTING ON THESE COOKIES AN THEY TASTE AMAZING. COME TASTE SOME.”
ARTHUR LOVED THE COOKIES. HE THOUGHT IT WAS THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER! AFTER THAT ARTHUR NEVER FORGOT TO PUT THE SUGAR IN HIS COOKIES!
