Two cousins from Maryland wrote President Donald Trump a letter asking to bake him cookies and he invited them to come to the White House to bake with Melania Trump.
“A big thank you to Celia and her big sister Natalie from Clarksburg, MD for traveling to the @WhiteHouse to visit! I had a wonderful time watching you bake cookies! #ChocolateChipCookies,” the first lady captioned her Friday post on Instagram, along with photos capturing all the fun.
The two girls, 9-year old Celia Sheehan and 12-year old Natalie Elder Dalton, got the chance to bake chocolate chip cookies on Friday at the White House.
A short time later, the cousins delivered cookies to Trump in the Oval Office.
Judging by the photos, the girls definitely enjoyed their visit and getting to bake with the first lady and WH pastry chefs.

Earlier in the day, the first lady spoke at the presentation of the International Women of Courage Award at the State Department.
“As we recognize these incredible women, let us think for a moment about what courage truly is,” Trump shared, according to a White House release. “Courage is the quality most needed in this world, yet it is often the hardest to find. Courage sets apart those who believe in higher calling and those who act on it. It takes courage not only to see wrong, but strive to right it. Courage is what sets apart the heroes from the rest. It is equal parts bravery and nobility. The women of courage we honor here today are heroes. They’re heroes in the countries they call home. They’re heroes for the entire world.”
