The Most Delicious Party of the Year

This year was the 4th year of hosting my annual cookie party.  I look forward to hosting this party every year, and I think my friends look forward to coming, although they do give me a hard time about having to bake.  They all claim to not be bakers.  {Based on the cookies they brought, I might have to disagree with that!}

The party is  cookie decorating party and a cookie swap rolled into one.  It is a fair amount of work, but it is just too much fun!

Each year I pick a different cookie style to decorate and this year we used the ones from this HGTV cover to use as our inspiration.

Since it isn’t too likely that we will be here next year, I wonder if there will be a 5th annual cookie party. I have a feeling that even if they don’t get together for the cookie decorating part, they will get together for the cookie exchange part.

While we were playing with cookies, Allen took the boys to a Christmas concert by the Royal Bahamas Police Force Band. at Atlantis.  They loved it!

The guys looked so adorable before they left, I had to get a picture!

We have been having so much fun this year, but it is all flying by so fast!

  1. If you ship cookies to them I feel sure they will get together and decorate and exchange. That could be your exchange for the party....you just wouldn't get any back. :-)
