sugar cookie extravaganza number 44

a farewell to california means a farewell to the monthly sugar cookie making, baking, decorating and eating extravaganza that has been going strong since october 2007. when i invited kristen and lindsey over to my house to make halloween cookies 3.5 years ago, i never imagined what it would lead to. in that time, we only missed one month, bringing the grand total to 44. with an average of 40 cookies {probably more} each time, that's a whopping 1,760 cookies. yum. and we also only almost burned the house down once. those were some hard cookies.

we have it down to a science. from the rolling to the baking {even though we never hear the oven timer} to coloring and bagging the frosting, to choosing the decorating tips to actually decorating and consuming the cookies. we really have that last part down pat.

and now we've all made a pact to never make sugar cookies again unless we are all together. right?
i'm not sure who is going to miss it more - the moms or the chubby-cheeked kids. or maybe ryan. he has a thing for frosting...

Seriously the coolest monthly tradition ever.

Such a fun idea! You should do a blog of the progression of the cookies - I would imagine they got more creative with time?
