Emily's Cookie Party

2:12 PM Thursday, December 09, 2010

Each year I do a Cookie Party for my friends and for those who come to my crafters group. Since Emily is out of school for the month we decided to do one for her friends in her class. She invited 8 friends and asked them to bring a new piece of jewelry wrapped for an exchange and then 2 dozen cookies to exchange as well. The girls ate dinner and giggled, then they did the jewelry exchange and giggled before 2 of her friends left for an hour. All the girls got what they wanted and got to go home with something new from a friend. While her 2 friends were gone they went caroling to some of our neighbors. I think the whole neighborhood heard them they were so loud. I'm sure you can imagine 9 10 year olds singing and yelling while going from house to house. Once they finished that, they came back and played in the dark basement hiding from one another. Their friends came back and that's when the cookie exchange started. The girls brought some really yummy treats like dipped pretzel rods, sugar cookies with jam and glaze, chocolate chip, peanut butter, and even gluten free cookies that were super yummy. Once the cookies were gone the girls sat at the table and ate their treats while they waited for their moms to come pick them up. I think the party was a success, no hurt feelings or fights and they all left with smiles.


  1. It looks like Emily and her friends had a wonderful time. She is lucky to have a mom who does things like that for her and with her. Actually, all your children are lucky to have you as a mom - you are spectacular!


  2. Sounds like such a fun party!!! We did one a few years ago and it was a blast. We talked about doing one this year but it isn't going to happen since we don't have a functioning kitchen ...
