We’ve been on the road. Even Maggie. We flew to North Dakota for Alan and Lauri’s wedding reception and hung around for Thanksgiving. Jes and Andrew also made the trip from Brooklyn. Eight days of family fun! I did a few posts from there but since I only have my iPad when I travel, anything posted on the road is short and sweet!
Seemed only right to do some Christmas cookie baking while we were there–Cookie Day, North Dakota Style. Cookie Day has been a special annual event for me and a bunch of my friends and family for over 20 years. Here’s a link to cookie days past: http://ktgreendesign.com/cookieday.html Our Cookie Day is not just an exchange. The bakers actually bring the ingredients, mix up the cookies, and bake that day. Along with consuming many adult beverages and the most delicious appetizers ever, it’s the most wonderful day of the year!
Since Lauri had not yet been introduced to Cookie Day and Jes was AWOL last year and won’t make it to Florida the rest of this year, we decided to have two Cookie Days! One in ND, one in FL. (Florida Cookie Day is a few weeks away!) There can never be too many Cookie Days! We also invited the men to join us since it was too cold to throw them outside. That would just be mean! Besides, not too many golf courses are open in Mandan, ND in November!
