Christmas Cookie Exchange Party

  Last Friday afternoon I hosted our first Ladies 9-Hole es Golf League Christmas cookie exchange party at my place.  There were a total of 9 ladies who actually signed up to bake cookies for the exchange (including me).  For those ladies that are not bakers or didn't need to bake, were more than welcome to come and join the fun!  We ended up with a total of 13 fun loving and cheery ladies!
I made a total of 18 dozen Melting Moments cookies.

  This picture was taken right after we all did the cookie exchange.
All loaded up and ready to go home and take a nap, and others on their way to the next Christmas party!!!

BOY did we have FUN ... as you can see!
 All the ladies arrived on the dot, and 
 we started off with cocktails and visiting.

We all sat down for a luncheon.  The ladies had a choice of Loaded Baked Potato Soup and Quick & Easy Chicken Noodle Soup or both.  I also served a very easy to make Holiday Champagne Punch and for dessert a taste of our home baked Christmas cookies.
I had no time to take pictures of the decorated dinner table and food 😞

Jack and Daphne were able to come and join us after we sat down for coffee in the family room.  Jack is such a loving baby and was so happy to meet everyone.  Daphne ... not so much.  She was happy to be in mommy's arms the whole time.

So blessed to have fun and loving friends!

Dear Santa,
I was good at being naughty!  Does that count?
