Mind you, this ornament was opened by the 5th pic and I called it as soon as I saw it. Had to have it, coveted it in fact! I made it known to all attendees that this ornament was MINE. Mine, mine, mine, mine, mine.......... (seen Finding Nemo?) :)
After we have stuffed ourselves silly and everyone has an ornament, you grab your container and circle the tables to fill up with those yummy cookies! It is a lot of fun, and even though I am not a baker (visual of my cursing and wondering why I do this every year) in the end it is all worth it!
Here are some shots from the crowd:
Good time was had by all. Ate 1/2 the cookies I brought home, froze the other 1/2 so my mom can try them when she comes.
