We each brought 3 dozen cookies and took home about the same. Some highlights:
- Orange nut lace cookies dipped in chocolate
- Cranberry cookies with lemon zest icing
- 2 different kinds of gingerbread
- Praline Cookies
- Chocolate Chunk Cookies
- Potato Chip Cookies
- Cocoa Meringue Cookies
- Eggnog Cookies
And then there came the party favors (my favorite part):
Carolyn is quite the quilter so she made us each a Mug Rug - a coaster big enough for your mug of hot chocolate and a little snack to accompany it.
And Charity, being Charity, raided her extensive shawl closet and brought us each one to take home. This is an incredibly generous gift. Charity has a great eye for color and design. Each shawl is a one-of-a-kind work of art requiring hundreds of hours.

We each selected one and we all agreed that each shawl matched the recipient quite beautifully. Except Jamie somehow ended up with my shawl... Funny, that.
