I hosted my first cookie exchange this weekend. For those of you who aren't familiar, each person brings a different kind of cookies, and everyone shares cookies - that way each person will go home with the same number of cookies they brought, but all different kinds. Anyway, I only invited 6 people - this way it wouldn't be too out of control. It was still a ton of work, though! Since the cookies were for take away, I had to make all sorts of other apps to eat at the actual party part. It was a really great time, and a nice laid-back way to celebrate Christmas with friends. I've posted a few pictures, including a before photo. The girls who attended are Liana, Sarah, Sam, Erica, Beth and Nicole. Such fun! Now John has the hard job of eating all those cookies!
