December is an important month in our house. Hundreds of cookies are baked for a yearly "cookie party". For the second year, I've taken the whole kit and kaboodle on the road; cookies, dozens of bags of icing, sprinkles, and festive tablecloths to the Parry Center.We usually host a party for 40 children on the site, from grade school to high school age, where they can decorate a plate of cookies for themselves or to give as gifts. Along with the cookies, neighbors, friends and family donate an assortment of new pajamas. Much joy and sugar is had by all.
