Cookie Exchange

This weekend has been so busy, but so much fun.  Yesterday, we had a birthday party for a friend's daughter, then ran a bunch of errands, and then went to hang out with some friends to watch the fight.  The wives spent the evening hanging out in another room and visiting.

Today, I had lunch with my friend Priscilla and her son.  Then I did some shopping.  I have three gifts left to get and a few stocking stuffers to be completely done!  And best of all, they are all wrapped and under the tree.

Then, this afternoon, I went to a cookie exchange with some friends from work.  I had never been to one and was really looking forward to it.  We were to all bring 6 dozen cookies.  I chose cranberry white chocolate oatmeal cookies.  I blended together a few recipes I had and then made a few changes.  I was really impressed with how they turned out.  Thanks Kimmie for the idea!

There were lots of different cookies there.  This is what I came home with:

(I ran out of room in my first tub)

There's pumkin chip cookies, cake balls, chocolate chip cookies, rasberry bars, graham toffee, lemon cookies, Lottie Moon cookies, Texas Ranger fudge cups, 7 layer cookies, biscotti, cranberry nut cookies, and more!  I brought home atleast six of each of atleast 12 cookies.  I haven't tried any yet, but I can't wait to dig in.  I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them.  Some people use them as gifts.  Some people freeze them and serve them at Christmas, and some people just eat them now.  I'm leaning towards the last.  

This week is full of lots of parties and then a weekend to rest and unwind.  I can't Christmas is approaching so quickly!
