2nd Annual Cookie Party~Dec 15th!

I'm a bit behind on my blogging, but am trying to catch up a bit tonight. On Saturday, Dec 15th, my nieces hosted the 2nd annual cookie party at their family home in Vancouver. We were delighted to have all the cousins attend! Papa was so happy to have them all under one roof!

I had the BEST job of the day! Here I am with Ava and my great niece Isabelle! It was also Isabelle's 9th birthday, so she got a double treat! These two girls did an awesome job of rolling and cutting MANY pans of cookies! The three of us had so much fun. You can see Jenny in the background....she was in charge of the oven. Boy, did she have a lot of work to do!

Cute picture of my niece Anna and her husband Matt.

My beautiful daughters Gina and Angie. Gina drove down from Seattle for the event. The girls stayed overnight at our house after the party. A special time for us.

Three very special girls in my life~Angie, Gina and Miss Ava.

Chris and Angie. Chris was a good sport to come to a family function this large...he is still getting used to our large family.

Cookie decorators hard at work taking the job seriously!

Jimmy and Linda sure had a fun day. Thanks to the Cesnik family for hosting the cookie party again!
This year has been a very fun season for us with more
time spent with family and friends. I think we look pretty happy! I think after the school tragedy, we were just so glad to be together and feel safe. Lots of hugs were going around.
