baking for the holidays

we had our annual family christmas cookie exhange.
its a tradition for the girls in the family.
my grandma, aunts, cousins, sister-n-law and nieces.
it was amazballs, just like always.
brette missed out on most of it because she
s  l  e  p  t
pretty much the whole day,
which gave me plenty of time to help with all the baking.
everyone brings cookies they bake ahead of time:
sugar cookies
caramel drops
peanut butter cookies
chocolate covered cherry cookies
chocolate peppermint cookies
cowboy cookies
dream bars
no bake
and fudge
(i'm sure i'm missing some)
and those are just the ones we exchange.
but then...
we spend the rest of the day making more:
peanut clusters
dipped pretzels
oreo balls
peppermint bark
peanut brittle
peanut butter blossoms
pretzel kiss bites
chocolate chip cookies
it is a crazy sweet chocolaty gooey awesome family fun day.
but it just wasn't the same without mickie. (sad face)

here's to another christmas!
