12th Annual Cookie and Ornament Exchange

Well, I think it was another successful Cookie and Ornament Exchange.  So many delicious cookies and candies... our baking skills seem to improve every year!  Thank you to everyone who was able to make it and we missed the few that weren't able to be there... next year!  I love seeing all my friends and I think this is such a fun way of starting out the Christmas Season!

Tammy's cookie.... so delicious, they truly tasted just like a Snickers Bar!

Lisa's Andes mint cookie... loved these!

Dorothy's Pizzelles... her family recipe!

Gina's Lemon Quarters... poor Gigi... 2nd place yet again!

Tammy has been our official ballot counter for years!

Ugly Christmas Sweater Contestants... Anna, Megan, Kathy, and Shannon.  I think everyone got a vote, but Shannon ended up winning.  Her sweater just had a little more bling than the other ladies' sweaters.  Thanks for the fun suggestion Megan... this will definitely be an added tradition to this party!  I'm going to be out at the thrift stores right after Christmas looking for my sweater for next year!  :)

Dorothy opening up her ornament... I think this was stolen from her a few minutes after she opened it!  :)

Anna, me and Alison

Kathy Sanchez won AGAIN!  Second year in a row and, I believe, her third time total!  She made some delicious Pumpkin cookies!  Here she is opening her prize... as I'm typing this I am just now noticing Stacey in the background howling!  :0 

Group shot of all the ladies! 
Thanks for coming everyone... Merry Christmas!
