ornament exchange

every year one of my friends in my neighborhood has an ornament/cookie exchange. everyone brings 12 homeade ornaments and 12 plates/bags of cookies with the recipe (the one's i made are above...you cant really see 'em but oh well).

at the end of the night we all came home with 12 different ornaments and 12 different plates of cookies! thanks for the yummy dinner and all the fun patti! everyone was so creative, the ornaments turned out really cute...p.s. so it's now official...i'm finally caught up on everything we've done lately that i've been wanting to blog about (again, this blog is my journal. if you don't want to read/look at all the long posts then it's fine with me :) ). we've been so busy. like i've said before though, i love this time of year & all the holiday activities.
oh, & anyone want some cookies?? i have a TON now!!
