Christmas Collab Day 1: The Un-pear-able Treat

Hello, people of the earth!

Today is day 1 of the collaboration with the fabulous EnniMorgan! Her post will be up later this evening. I’ll be posting tomorrow, then she’ll be posting the next day, then I’ll be posting the day after that, and so on.

So, let’s get started, shall we?

Please ignore the fact that Alexandra is not wearing underpants…

“What’s that?” Maryellen asked, pointing to the foam cut-out in Lexie’s lap as she and Isabel walked in to the kitchen/living room.

“It’s an advent calendar. Emmie made it for us.” Alexandra propped the “advent calendar” on the couch.

Isabel shot Ellie a confused look. “What’s that?” She mouthed. Ellie shrugged in reply.

“It’s how we’re gonna countdown until Christmas. Each day, we’ll open a flap and do an activity that the flap reads.”

Alexandra flipped open Flap #1. “What does it say?” Maryellen asked eagerly.

“Make a pear-related treat.” Alexandra read aloud.

“What’s that supposed to mean?”

“ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO MEEEEE, A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREEEE,” Isabel sung loudly.

“Oh, I get it. Let’s look up some recipes.”Maryellen said. Alexandra flipped open the laptop and browsed through recipes.

“This one looks good,” Maryellen said.

“I’ll preheat the oven!”

“I’ll gather the ingredients!”

“I guess I’ll do the baking,” Alexandra ran off to the counter.

«1 Hour Later»

Maryellen pulled the tray out of the oven, expecting to find rows of perfectly browned apple-and-pear crisps. Instead, she found a single lump of stringy, burnt pears.

“What’s that?” Alexandra asked.

“Ummm….our pear crisps.” Maryellen hesitantly took bite, which she immediately spit out. It tasted Terrible with a capital T!

“Wait, how high did you set the oven too?”

Sorry this is blurry!

“Uh, 3,760 degrees, like the recipe said.”

“No, the recipe said 376 with a degrees sign! That little O at the top means degrees!”

“Oh.”

Alexandra facepalmed.
