cookie party

December 21, 2008

Last Thursday my friends and I got together at Jess’s house to decorate cookies.  I brought sugar cookies, Holly brought gingerbread men, and Jess wanted to make a gingerbread house.  We had a great time decorating all the cookies and drinking wine.  It was so much fun to get together and just relax and have a good time.  The cookies and the house turned out great and it was a good excuse to spend some time together since everyone has been so busy lately, we don’t get to see each other as much as we’d like.

Melissa has a real talent for decorating cookies.  Her’s came out so much better than mine, so most of the cookies I took pictures of were the ones she did.

I can’t believe how fast Jess got this house built.  By the time we finished half the cookies, she was almost done!  Not long after I took this picture, Baby Charlotte got hungry so I finished it for her.

We all decided this was way more fun than the cookie swaps we’ve done in years past, so I think we just started a new tradition.
