Yesterday my good friend, Melissa, held her annual Christmas Cookie Festival.
We started out by playing games.
Guess the number of candies in the jar. Place a paper on top of your head and draw a snowman. Holiday word search (the only game I won). And the dice game where you roll a 1 or 6 and gift boxes are taken from the other players until time runs out (whoever is left with a gift gets to keep it).
There were appetizers and main dishes -- she always makes sure to have vegetarian/vegan dishes just for me.
And the finale.
A big container of homemade cookies for everyone to take home. She spends weeks doing all the baking herself.
A wonderful afternoon of festive fun, food and friendship.
She even made a separate batch of vegan cookies just for me which I enjoyed this morning for breakfast.
