I MADE IT SAFELY . . .

In my last posting I was trying to decide if I should risk driving in the oncoming snow storm to my daughter's house (an hour away) for a Christmas Cookie Exchange!  Well I decided I would go but not stay long and get back before it got dark and the roads got any worse.

I'm so glad I went ... what a wonderful group of girls and look at all these awesome goodies!!  This is the best way to end up with 12 dozen various holiday cookies without ALL the work!


With the weather being bad, Carolyn decided to 'divi' up the goodies first then we could sit around the table ... sample all the goodies and chit-chat.  This worked out perfectly because for a couple of us who came the furthest, when we needed to leave everything was packaged & ready to go.

Here's the cookie makers ... 
Grandson, Jonathan was sweet enough to snap a few photos for us (thanks Jon!).  Yep, that's me on the right side of the photo in the 'Christmas Cookie Shirt' ... how appropriate, huh??

Thanks again to daughter, Carolyn for organizing this get together and for being such a wonderful, gracious hostess!  I hope we can do this again next year!!
