My Idea: Spend time laughing with a friend. Many of my most stressful times were made easier by spending time talking and laughing with a friend. Mary would probably say she spent the afternoon working....but still we know how to have fun together. The cookies last a long time and get better with age. Just like our friendship.
Mary and I have been friends for over 30 years. We went to nursing school together. (That was truly a bonding experience!) Mary continues in the Nursing profession, while I retired from mine. (Although, I do miss Labor and Delivery. My job was a pleasure. Always interesting and fun to see the new ones and be a part of the joy.)
Mary brought her tree mold. These molds are all from House on the Hill. Check out their web-site for molds and other information about these wonderful cookies.
The Santa above was a favorite of ours this year as well as the deer below.
A cellophane bag and a bit of ribbon are the perfect finish.
Barb's Idea: Meet for a glass of wine. Much more relaxing and less work!
You have to check out Barb and Mary's blog. You won't want to miss their fun day!
And stockings from Nina. Click on her name for her blog.
