Cookie Exchanging

Mmmmmm. Cookie exchanging is fun and delicious.


















Carson and I had a wonderful day last Friday, when we baked and decorated and rearranged the house all day. And he almost snitched a cookie.




Our first time making fondue turned out wonderfully! I always enjoy offering lots of fruits and veggies.



Then, some of our favorite girls came over! We ate, chatted, and decorated tins to hold the cookies. Most of our husbands were just down the street at the school studying together. Cute, huh? This picture just may be when we were all listening intently as Holly described her encounter with the Dead Sea skincare salesman.




Holly loves holding babies, except when they spit up all over her.




The actual exchanging part of the party was SO fun. It was a Christmas-y frenzy with everyone giving and gifting and snatching cookies all over the place! I look like I am totally in charge here. And Rachel is the cookie counter... "if we each brought 4 dozen, that means 48 cookies, times 8 girls..." We had to really use our mental math skills here.






















And then the studying husbands all came in and crashed the party. Everyone went home happily carrying oodles of cookies.

Way to go!!! Sounds like a blast! I want to know which cookies you made...recipes, please?? :) Remember when we had a fondue party at Lib. Square...it was fun, except that Mitch totally scorched our fondue, and also broke my new Cuisinart fondue maker. :( No hard feelings though...
