Guess what cookie I made 6 dozen of this year? Heather's winner! (click the photo to find out what I mean) A friend invites several ladies to the exchange. We each bake 6 dozen. When we exchange, each of us ends up with a variety of 6 dozen others to take home.
I love this not just for the practicality of it, but for the Relational aspect. It's always a time for catching up. Many of us don't see each other often throughout the year, so this is our chance to find out what has been going on since we last saw one another. We leave our kids with the husbands, and we laugh, & eat & chatter! So much fun! & Yummy!
My waistline is thankful it only rolls around once a year!
