New Year's resolution--become a better blogger. I am so bad at updating this thing.
Anyway--wanted to share some pictures from my annual cookie swap. This should have been the sixth annual, but last year I just didn't think that I knew enough girls who would be interested in participating. This year was a different story. It was a great swap, as swaps go...ten total in attendance (or 9.5? I'm not sure if Rebecca's non-cookie-eating nine-week-old counts for a full attendee or not...) and more than enough delicious cookies to go around.
So here's how Kate's Cookie Swap works, for those of you who aren't familiar:
Everyone brings at least five dozen homemade cookies. First the cookies are displayed in all their caloric glory...
Soon the table is groaning with its delicious, sugar-studded bounty...
Then we circle the table until the platters are empty
and our boxes are full.
Throughout the process there is plenty of time given to cookie-related debate and reflection.
In preparation for the cookie swap, we make sure the house looks extra festive...with a Christmas tree
and no holiday gathering is complete without a visit from Manny Claus.
He knows if you've been naughty or nice...
