Today we hosted a brunch/cookie exchange. The weather outside was not exactly frightful, but not good either -- new snow and a forecast of more heavy snow. Some didn't venture out, but we had a good time with those who made it. (My camera was lying on the counter, but I didn't think to take any pictures.) It was a beautiful morning, with snow falling outside the window, french vanilla coffee and scents of orange and cinnamon in the house. We played a game related to the story of The Gingerbread Man, and guests ended up with a gingerbread man item to take home with them - a magnet, cookie cutter, hand towel, or serving plate. After a leisurely breakfast, we walked round and round the cookie table, filling our trays with samples of all the cookie varieties: oatmeal chocolate chip, cut-out decorated sugar cookies, chocolate macadamias, Mexican wedding cookies, and others. Each one left with a gingerbread man or woman ornament for their own tree, and we will enjoy the memories of a nice morning with friends.
For fun on today's holiday post, What kind of reindeer are you?
You Are Prancer
You are the perfect reindeer, with perfect hooves and perfect flying form.
Why You're Naughty: Because you're Santa's pet, and you won't let anyone show you up.
Why You're Nice: You have the softest fur and the sweetest carrot breath.
