We have a little over a week until Christmas. How did that happen? I'm mostly done with shopping - I just need to focus on getting my house in order! :) Of course, with four kiddos at home, that's a never-ending job!

Some of you may have heard that I recently participated in a blogger "Secret Santa." I was truly stumped as to what to send someone I really only know online. I was paired up with Britni from Play. Party. Pin. I mean, I know her, but I don't "KNOW" know her. Do you know what I mean?! I have no idea what she likes, what she has or what she may need/want. I'm a practical gifts kind of person. Of course, I stalked her blog for ideas, but I was totally at a loss. I really hope she likes what I sent! She actually received two packages from me - one being her actual present and another box that had a Christmas card and these cookies! She noted in the form that these cookies are her fave -  and I can do cookies! I'm sure you'll enjoy them too - which is why I'm sharing them with you! :)
