Christmas Cookies

I can no longer send a plate of Christmas cookies to my husband’s office because one of his colleagues will eat ALL the communal food before 10AM. Since I still want to send the rest of the people Christmas cookies, I decided to send everyone a personal cookie pack.

Everyone got a couple of sugar cookies (one with their initial), a couple of oatmeal cookies and a couple of chocolate chip cookies. The husband and I spent an hour wrapping all the packages.

I made slightly bigger packages for my assistants and some friends.

I may have baked a few hundred cookies. I definitely used 5lbs of butter.

Monster High Back to School

We headed back to the mid-west after 4 years and one week, for a conference and to meet up with friends still in the area. Two these friends are a couple of lovely blond ladies getting ready to get into the 1st (or 2nd) and 3rd (4th) grade. Their mom told me they like Monster High, so I went and got them all the Monster High back to school stuff that I could find!

I like being the aunt who pops up every five-ten years with lots of presents (think  bourgeois Auntie Mame).

Now, if some one could tell me what exactly Monster High is, I’ll go ahead and put my other foot in the grave and call it a day.
