I would like to thank you for having this web site. It helped me sooo much!
I held my first Cookie Exchange on Dec. 8. There were 10 of us (plus 7 unexpected
children, who ended up being very well-behaved!).
We had so much fun that I forgot to get my camera and take pictures! Everyone
brought 11 doz. 1 doz to taste and 1 doz. for each guest. Each girl also
brought a package of store bought cookies to donate to the Personal Care
Home where my mother is a resident. We played the left-right game--what a
We also played a Christmas trivia game. It was 25 questions about Christmas
and was hilarious! I can't believe grown women could not know the right answer
to some of the easiest questions-- such as "Did Rudolph have antlers?" Someone
seriously said "No" And another stumper was "How many verses are there in
The 12 Days Of Christmas?" Someone said "13"! We had prizes for these
games and for first to arrive, best looking cookie, best presentation, and
one more I have forgotten already!
Our theme was Gingerbread men, so all the prizes had something to do with
gingerbread. I made everyone a gingerbread ornament with date on it for the
favors. We had mini wieners wrapped in crescent rolls, cocktail meatballs,
spinach artichoke bread bowls, a dip that tastes like Strawberry Pretzel
salad, sweets, coffee punch, slush and of course cookies to taste.
Before the party was over everyone was asking for me to please have one next
year. Of course I will! At least half have planned what cookie they are bringing
So, again, THANK YOU! Without your website, I could not have done this.
