Cookie Day!!!

Today was a very busy & fun filled day! I got to spend the whole day with my best friend & sister Elyse. Elyse treated me to lunch this afternoon at McAlister's Deli! It was delicious & very nice just to get to spend some time with my sister!

My favorite part of McAlister's is diet Dr. Pepper :)

After lunch we headed to Walmart to get baking supplies for our cookie extravaganza! We were baking for Savannah's cookie swap party! We baked cookies all afternoon at Elyse's house, which was an adventure! I'm not sure how we would've done it alone and I am so thankful for my sister! We had the best time baking, laughing at one another and listening to Christmas music!

Elyse made Peanut Butter Pretzel Balls.. Isn't she cute?! :)
Elyse & Dixie
The peanut butter balls were very sticky & we had a hard time molding them into balls!

Dixie waiting for crumbs to drop!

I made (with the help of Elyse) Peppermint Kiss Cookies!

Ready to go into the oven!

Elyse & I mixed, dipped, sprinkled & baked for over four hours! Finally this little cutie arrived home!

The finished product!!

We arrived to Savannah's beautifully decorated home & to this spread of cookies... YUM!!!

All the guys watched basketball while the girls sat around the table chatting & eating all of the delicious treats! Alexander hung out with his favorite, Savannah!

Bubby also enjoyed Savannah's cake balls, which are the most amazing treats EVER!

All the girls: Ashley, Elyse, Savannah, Me & Megan

& the boys (minus Mike, he had to go to work): Alex, Bubby, Kevin, Kevin & Josh

I had a wonderful time, as always, with the girls & I really enjoy spending time & eating yummy food with them! Thanks again Savannah for hosting! I had a great time!!
