Cookie Party!

12/27/2011 marks a very special date...our very first annual Cookie Decorating/Swap Party! We decided to make it a yearly tradition, as eating massive amounts of sugar and having hours of silly girl talk seemed the perfect combination. Throw a little Christmas Bingo in the mix and it's almost more than we could handle. But we did handle it...and everyone left with smiles on their faces and tons of cookies in tow. If you're looking for a fun Valentine's party idea, this would be wonderful!

p.s. Big thanks to my Momma and Dad for letting us use your house for the night. Next year we'll leave you more cookies!
p.p.s. Sorry for the 14,038 pictures! It's amazing how many pictures you take when you're crazy hyper on a sugar-high.

Frosty's not flippin' you the bird, I promise. I think an icicle got stuck to his hand. Isn't that right, Frosty?
We shared recipes along with many, many laughs.
Two of my sister-in-laws brought red velvet and lemon cake mix cookies...they were amazing. Recipe coming soon!

Did you attend/host a cookie party this year? Do you have any ideas for our future gatherings? Would love to hear about them!
