Spontaneous Narration about a "Cookie Press"

C is coming over today to make cookies with the boys. She is going to bring her cookie press, so they can make wreaths and trees. They are pretty excited, though they really have no idea what a cookie press is. SA was thinking about it, though, and remembered a video he watched a couple days before. I captured his spontaneous narration:
"Opa has a cookie press in the bakery. He puts the cookies on trays, then they put another tray on top and put wood on it. They just slide it in the cookie press. They put the handle down, then the cookies are pressed flat. You have to be careful not to get them too pressed down."
JJ (as he realizes what SA is talking about): "Peter do that on the video!"
SA (knowing I've written this all down): "You should email that to Oma and Opa."

This is the video they watched on Monday:

So they still don't know what a cookie press is, but I guess they'll find out this afternoon.
