I did it! I survived another year of decorating cookies with a ton of teenagers! I’ve been hosting this cookie decorating party for years, and it’s fun to look back and see how it has evolved.
It started small with a few girls, moved into something massive with way too many girls, came back to just a handful of girls, and this year…..BOYS. Hello!
The conversation this year went something like this-
“Mom, you don’t have to, like, decorate that much this year.” Aka…”Mom, please don’t, like, decorate that much this year.”
“Oh ok, honey. I won’t.” Aka…”Girl! You better watch yo self! Mama is decorating! That’s what she do.”
We should probably work on our communication skills.
Sugar shakers for all the sprinkles. Whoa. That changed my life.
Pre-made cookies that I threw in the oven. Another life changer.
Aaaaand a hot cocoa bar. My fav.
And finally…the cookies were sent home. I love these foil containers and use them every year! I purchase them at Gordons Food Service (cheap), and they hold so many cookies!
And now I rest. And eat lots–and lots–of cookies!
