How's that for a catchy title? I need to back up a few days. ANNOUNCEMENT!!! My great blog friend, Kurt aka KrippledWarrior at Some Things I Have Learned is the winner of my giveaway. Congratulations Kurt. So glad you won. He was notified last week, I just hadn't posted it yet.
My daughter and I baked about 15 dozen cookies. Yes, you read that right. 15 dozen. Why so many? My annual cookie exchange was Saturday. I needed six dozen for the exchange. A couple people had to back out at the last minute so I wanted to contribute an extra six dozen. We made Snickerdoodles and Walnut-Maple Drops for the exchange. We also made chocolate chip to eat. Yeah. We're crazy like that.
The cookie exchange was a great success. Seven of my closest friends came over. We shared laughs. Played Christmas trivia. Answered Christmas song questions. They won gift baskets. One lucky person won the cookie jar. We ate appetizers. We drank mulled apple cider. We played the Dirty Santa Gift Exchange. It was a lot of fun.
I was so busy hosting, I didn't take a single picture. Not one! Ugh.
Today was to be cookie baking day with the grand-boy. He wants to make chocolate crinkle cookies. But the weather turned crazy. Yesterday it was in the mid-40s and raining. Today it barely reached 20. It snowed. And snowed. Then it snowed some more. On top of that the wind was kicking. Not a very pleasant day. Definitely a day for staying indoors. Baking cookies with the grand-boy is rescheduled for next weekend.
Now my way behind is caught up with the rest of me. Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting. Have a fabulous week.
Peace and Joy,
