Thankful for the Large Amount of Sugar Consumed!

Attention all ladies and your lady friends - if you're looking for a creative idea for a Christmas party, a cookie exchange is the way to go! The ladies from my church had a cookie and gift exchange party last night which ended up being tons of fun. Each of us was instructed to bring 2-4 dozen of the same cookie, and then at the party we got to mix and match from the cookies everyone else brought.
The result? An assortment of 36 cookies for me to take home!

We also had a gift exchange, and there was plenty of stealing going on since there were so many great ones to choose from. There were a lot of laughs at the gift I ended up with - one of the ladies actually forgot her gift, so when she arrived, she rummaged through her baby bag for something. Well, when I opened my gift, there was a $10 Target gift card with a note written in pencil that said, "Pretend like this card says Merry Christmas rather than New Baby!"





Me with our sweet pastor's wife, also my scarf buddy (aka, the cold-natured ones at the party)

I've said it before and I'll say it again - I love the ladies at my church and I'm so thankful for them!!! Whether engaging in a serious conversation or attending a get-together with enough cookies to last until March, I am continually grateful for how encouraging they are~

Yum! I think snickerdoodles are my new favorite cookies. Have any of those the other night?

Those cookies look delicious!!! I should put together one of those ladies' gatherings next year since I don't live close enough to participate with you! ;P
