Who Said Giving is Better Than Receiving?

* Updated below.

I have been reminded what sweet friends I have the last couple of days.

Today I put Cakes down her for her nap after which I checked my email and found this delightful Christmas banner from Christine. Don’t you love it!

Saturday, no sooner had I blogged about forsaking baking than my neighbour dropped by bearing homemade chocolate cookies with mint icing, drizzled with dark chocolate, and topped with crushed candy canes. Fucking-A!

Yesterday Penelope came by for coffee, and what did she bring? Homemade shortbread cookies with chocolate chips. Score!

I must have been good this year, ‘cause Santa’s come early.

sweet!

Update

Her Bad AuctionGiving is really better than receiving. I'm pleased to report Her Bad Auction raised over $3,000 for MD Canada. Thanks to all of you for your generosity.

When you're full, I'll totally take the rest of those cookies off your hands.

I was hoping that karma trick would work for me. Other than a chocolate dreidel, (I'm not Jewish)I really haven't been blessed with the cookies this year. Lucky you!
