Holiday Gatherings

On Sunday I had planned to host another ornament and cookie exchange for our group of girlfriends. Out of the 12 of us, only 3 were able to make it since everyone's holiday schedules are just pure insanity. 

It was actually really nice to have a small group. I made some caprese bites, and the most amazing "crack dip" that seriously lived up to its name.

 Since the group was a little more manageable, my friend Kristen brought all of the fixings for us to make our own Gingerbread houses - and she even hand made all of the pieces, which still blows my mind. 

It was really fun to sit at the table with girlfriends, keep our hands busy with our crafts, and catch up over champagne and snacks.

Once our houses were done, we swapped Christmas ornaments, filled bags of cookies and went on our merry way.
