If I ever...

If I ever see another Christmas cookie again before next Christmas, it will be too soon!

Cookie day 2010 was a success...and I still have a belly ache 3 days later.

On the list this year:
Glaser secret family recipe for spiced nuts
Heavenly chocolate balls
White chocolate dipped peppermint jo jos
Houck family recipe for Soda cracker toffee cookies

Julie and I baked and baked and baked while the kids were at school:

 Then, when the kids got home from school, we busted out the sugar cookies for them to decorate:

 We even made Brian decorate one since he was home. No one is left out on cookie day!

 Here are the adults creations:

 And I had to take a pic of Julie. She is the bestest ball roller in all of Orange County
(keep your perverted comments to yourself...ha ha)

And then at 10:00pm our packages were assembled. 
We could barely keep our eyes open! 
Packages took up every single square inch of counter top.

 The next day, tags were stamped and cookie packages were delivered to our loved ones.

We love this tradition and hope it brings great memories for our kids and friends.

And on a final note: Where is the alka seltzer???
