Monday night a few of my friends and family met to have a Christmas Cookie Exchange.
I made sugar cookies with icing and sprinkles.
Other folks made Gingerbread cookies, Chocolate Covered Shortbread, Mudpies, Peanut Butter Filled Cookies, Biscotti, Chocolate Chip and Chocolava Cookies.
So much sweetness!
A little too much in fact, so we also cleared our palettes with tea of many varieties
(including tea such as Eggnogg'n Tea)
And cheeses and crackers.
So much cheese! Mmm!!
We play a game of Things. Everyone's favourite question was the very last one of the evening. It came from Irina who asked us to take one character from one book and put it into another. Some of the more intriguing ideas were Piglet in Lord of the Flies, Sauron in Winnie the Pooh, Frodo in 1984, and Jonah in Moby Dick.
We enjoyed some very good laughs ... and did I mention cheese?
By the end of the evening, everyone went home with a a beautiful variety
of yummy, yummy cookies to share
with their families over the Christmas holidays!
