December LAC: Cookie Exchange

The December Ladies Activity Club party was last night and we had our first ever cookie exchange. I forgot my camera in the rush to bundle up for my walk over in this 40 degree cold snap, so no photos.

We had lemon shortbread, peanut butter kiss cookies, chocolate chip meringues, turtle bars, almond peppermint cookies, butterscotch bars, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and chocolate fudge along with my pretzel contribution. Yum! It was hard to stick to packing the boxes and not sampling each different kind.

Jill made a big pot of turkey chili to serve for our dinner and also had artichoke dip and lemon drops to drink. We sat by her giant Christmas tree and had all sorts of boxes, tissue paper and decorations to choose from.

I always giggle when I hear about how "cold" it is in California -- it was 20 degrees below zero last night here in Minneapolis! That, my friend, is a cold snap!

The cookie exchange is such a great idea. I never thought of wrapping the gifts with everybody, but that makes so much sense.

Such a great blog - I can't get enough!

Yeah, we're huge wimps. The local news shows are treating this "artic storm" and chance of ice as a major disaster.
