2015 Annual Christmas Cookie Swap

My sweet neighbor and friend, Jeannine, always hosts an annual Christmas cookie swap. She is the most wonderful host and I have been honored to be included in her tradition for the last 10 years. She announced at the party that this would be the last year. Even though I am sad to see this annual tradition come to a close, I completely understand. ┬áThank you Jeannine for always making this a fun time for everyone. I meant to get more pictures but when you are having so much fun with friends, new and old, time seems to slip away and I was hustling at the end trying to document what I could. I even borrowed a couple from Jeannine’s FB page so I apologize for the quality in advance.

One of the ladies baked some of the Pioneer Woman’s oatmeal bars. They were delicious. But how can you go wrong with a Pioneer Woman recipe!

One of the photos I borrowed from Jeannine. We all loved the Pumpkin Spice Lattes and Cranberry Mimosa Punch.

A picture of almost everyone at the party. One of the ladies had already left before we snapped this selfie. Such a wonderful group of ladies.

Thank you Jeannine for 10 years of fun and sweet memories.

Do you have a love of cookie swaps? I am thinking of picking up the torch from Jeannine for next year’s cookie swap. However, those shoes will be impossible to fill! I would love to hear your ideas.
