Cookie Exchange & Church Christmas Parties

On Monday Rylie & I attended our first cookie exchange! Have you ever been to one?
Well I had no idea what they were before this one & lemme tell ya I was missing out! Basically everybody bakes a yummy cookie recipe of their choice, packages the cookies by 2's, & makes copies of the recipe. Everybody there then grabs 1-2 bags of everybody's cookies & takes home a whole plate of yummy treats with new recipes!

All the kiddos got to play & have fun....

...while the Mommies got to chit chat & sip cocoa! Um, can we do this every week please? lol

Rylie of course happy to see baby Maggie! (She seriously talks about Maggie all the time & thinks every baby we come across is Maggie hehe!)

Quick picture with Mommy!

And a few of my friends who made it!
I'm sorry I didnt get a picture of Susan or Andi before they left!

Laurie, myself (ah bad pic!), & the hostest Tiffany (due with baby Ella in April!!!)

My tray I brought home. Of course I realized later on I shoulda take all the treats outta the bags before I took this picture. Sorry! And I didnt even take one of my own bags home. Was I supposed to?

Later that evening David & I attended a church Christmas party for the church he does side work for. David's mom watched Rylie for us (happily of course! hehe) while we attended. We got a quick picture by her tree before leaving. Rylie jumped in there too. She's like "Here I am! The best daughter in the world!" haha
