Sheila Fisher's 2nd
Cookie Exchange

Lexington North Carolina

Hi Robin,

This year I held my 2nd Annual Cookie Exchange on December 9th. What Fun it started a 4pm and didn't end until around 9pm! Thank you for having such a wonderful website and all the information is so very helpful.

This year I had 16 guests, word got out last year about the fun we had and so my party doubled, it was a perfect number however we can always squeeze one or two more in.

This year I improved my food & drink selections, I made a Winter Minestrone Soup and rolls, Marmalade Meatballs - everyone loved this. I had a Cherry Almond Goat Log w/ honey, Spinach Artichoke Dip, Veggie Tray, Hot Mulled Cider, Wine, Soda and the special drink of the evening were my "Mistletoe Martini's".

Games this year with gifts-

*Candy Cane Game-can't say the word "cookie"

The sad part about this years party is that I was having so much fun I forgot to take pictures. Theres always next year!

Last my not least, everyone walked away with a bag of Reindeer Food at the end of the night along with new friends and new memories.

So, thanks again for your inspiration and congratulation's on the "How to Host a Cookie Exchange Handbook". I love it.
