Merry Christmas to you and yours!
Your holiday baking looks well worth it. I did a cookie exchange with co-workers and ended up with 17 bags of 4 cookies each. Though we are four bags short now, we dipped into them a little over the weekend! Today I'm making chocolate cookies, which I think will go beautifully with the wine I intend to imbibe on Thursday. :0)
Have a great week.

I love the creativity that sparked the "paper doll" cookies. Brilliant, and so cute.

Safe travels to you too!

Merry Christmas!

Thanks, Sweet Pea--we made it safely!

We didn't participate in a cookie exchange this year, Omaha--I wish we had, though. And chocolate cookies and wine--Mmmmm!

Happy Holidays to you!

you are just bound and determined to make me log in over here, aren't you??? or maybe you're trying to shake me. but no... I've followed you ;)

I made xip, zero, zilch cookies and have been living off the kindness of friends and their plates of goodies. and i did miss it a little, but there was just NO TIME.

So good to see you here painted! And no, I am most certainly NOT trying to shake you. I sometimes wonder what it would be like to not bake at all on Christmas...

I loved those paper doll cookies too berrybird. We might just make them a new Christmas tradition!
