I’ve been to several parties this week. A party/reception, a cookie party, and tonight, a dirty santa/white elephant party. Then tomorrow I am going to a local Twitter party! I don’t know a lot of the Lex twitterites, but it will be nice to meet up and mingle, as well as hang out with my friend Chris. This week is going by sooooo fast. Christmas will be here before I know it. I actually am getting together with the fam this weekend, so that should be swell. I haven’t packed a single gift. I’m having a feeling it might be a gift bag Christmas! The sad thing is that I haven’t even gotten my decorations out period for the holidays. I’m just not in the mood this season. Maybe that’s a bah humbug on my part, but there’s been a lot going on! It’s hard to do everything. I live in an apartment and I never get visitors. So, the
lights would be for my enjoyment only. I think it does help put me in the mood, but it’s also another thing to do.
Well, I thought I would share a few quick photos from the cookie party I went to on Monday night!
This is my friend Donna Bush, who hosted the cookie party. She’s one of the craftiest and most talented ladies I know! At work, I call her Donna-Mom. She takes care of me and is so very thoughtful. She’s a very special friend in my life. I wanted to do something special for her, so I picked out the material and got my mom to embroider up Donna’s gingerbread men that she had designed for a project at work (as seen here). She was super excited! My mom also made cute little potholders, too. Donna can do just about anything crafty, so it was nice to have something made for her that she couldn’t do hersef!
Everyone presents their cookies in different ways…some turn out super elaborate. There’s a winner for best presentation, but without a doubt, it always ends up to someone who uses an animated stuffed animal!
Have you ever attended a cookie party or thought about hosting one? I’d love to hear what you did. We play a lot of different games (ornament pass, minister’s cat, etc) and Donna always tries to come up with something new each year. She puts a lot of work into it. It’s always such a blast!
Until next time Swellions!
