Planning and Preparations

That's what I've been doing this last week. TODAY IS COOKIE DAY! The day that I open my house to all my Wisconsin cousins (I'd love the SD cousins to make it, too, but that's so far to come for a full day of work!) and we make cookies and candies....ALL DAY LONG. It's a long, tiring day but also tons of fun! This year, I get two new cousins that joined our family in 2008. Since this is the first time I've done this in 3 or 4 years, it's hard to remember what we did and how much we can get done. This year we are making Peppermint Meltaways, Broken Glass Candy, Peanut Butter Balls, Cornflake Wreaths, Peanut Blossoms (with Kisses instead of those nasty stars), and decorating the kajillion sugar cookies that Grandma in the Woods and I have been making.

Wish me luck. I'll be back Monday with pictures and battle stories!


  1. SO I should e-mail you my addy for the cookie delivery? ;) Sounds like a good time will be had and some DELISH cookies will be made! Can't wait for pics (Much less fattening than the real thing anyway).

  2. Sounds like a fun day! I think I need to stop by your house! ;)

  3. Now that you'll be all practiced up, you're invited to my house on Wednesday for SD Cookie Baking Day! Wish we could have been there!!
