Holiday Cookie Exchange

On December 14th we gathered for our annual holiday party. This year we celebrated with a cookie exchange! The cookies ranged from traditional family recipes to fun unexpected twists on recipes (who knew you could put pretzels in with chocolate chip cookies?? Sweet, Salty & Crunchy!) At the end each cookie received a special award. We even played a few holiday games - Guess the Holiday Song & Draw a Gingerbread House with your eyes closed!! I think it's safe to say we all had a wonderful time and left with FAR too many cookies.

                                                                    Crystal's dogs were a big hit!!
