Cookie Extravaganza

 Middle school girls gathered together to bake up a storm.
8 sweethearts gathered to whip up some treats.

 Their fearless leader Mrs. Sandy organized the cookie bake.

 All of them anxious to get those Kitchen Aids whippin.

 Taste and see that the Lord is good!

 Chocolate chip, oatmeal, snickerdoodle, pumpkin, peanut butter blossoms, butterscotch and more...

 No troubles finding volunteers to unwrap the kisses!

 Make new friends but keep the old,
one is silver and the other gold!

 Sandy has been one of my dearest friends since the beginning of my motherhood.  She is always ready and rare'n to go!  "Hey you wanna help me make cookies with the girls on Saturday?" she asks.  Sure, I'll go just about anywhere with you girlfriend!

 I knocked this coffee cup over at least three times during our baking extravaganza.

 The music got louder as the kitchen heated up.  Then the dancing began.  Then they disappeared to the gym for more space to dance, dance, dance!

I want to take this shot in 20 years from now of these girls in this kitchen, dancing and baking cookies.

Pretty smiles

 Group shot
Silly faces

 Three ovens going at the same time.
Hurry with those kisses!

 So I gained 3 pounds today because I HAD to test every batch that came out of the oven.

 Robin wins the prize for persevering the longest.  She would hang out till the last cookie was cooked!

 Every one took home a tray of cookies.
Ours lasted about 6 days.
Okay so maybe I gained more than 3 pounds,
sugar is addicting, what can I say?

 Sprinkles, lots and lots of sprinkles

 Robin shared a little trick, sprinkle the top of the cookie with milk or water before putting on the sprinkles and they won't all roll off!

I love spending time with my girl, her girlfriends, and my girlfriend for the afternoon.  The next time I need to bake 9 different kinds of cookies I am gathering up the y chromosome sect and heading to the church kitchen!

Merry Christmas,
