This past Saturday evening was our Sunday School's Christmas party. I spent most of the day Friday baking for it and spent all day Saturday at Kelly's house (the host of the party) with a few friends cooking and putting everything together for the party. To say the least, I was ready to sit down and eat when 5:00 rolled around. I brought my camera with me but didn't take any pictures. :( I wish I would have taken a picture of all of the food. My goodness, there was a ton of food and it was all so good! The only 2 pictures I took were of the 2 things I made early on Friday in preparation of the party. I made Coffee Chocolate Chip Cookies and Reindeer Bites.
I also made Orange Cranberry Cookies on Friday to give to friends on Saturday and my Secret Sister on Sunday. This was a new recipe for me and is now my new favorite! I've been around so much chocolate lately that I'm kind of chocolated out - I know, crazy, right?? So these cookies were a great change for me. Plus, they are so good. The tartness of the cranberries blends beautifully with the sweetness of the orange. I will for sure be making this cookie again!
All in all, it's been a great weekend. Busy? Definitely yes but it was good. I love spending time with friends and family. I have been blessed with a wonderful church family who have become great friends. I hope you had a blessed, fun-filled weekend with family and friends as well!
