Daddy & Mia admire the decorations

Santa talks to "A" while "E" thinks :)
No one cried, but Mia seemed perplexed while sitting on
Santa's lap. She kept turning around to look at him, as I
jumped and waved behind the camera man!

Wow, all my children on Santa's lap! It still amazes me that
she is here!
We had our annual cookie exchange party ~ where we sampled about 15 cookies! Then, we had to vote on the best tasting cookie and also the best displayed cookie plate. It was such a fun and delicious night. Afterwards, we each took home a HUGE bag with about 6-8 samples of each person's cookie along with their recipe:

Display of cookies!
Best Display: Congrat's Kim!
Best Tasting Cookie: Hooray Barb!
