Giving can be sweet!

28 Nov

Here is a simple tradition for everyone to start! The parties are called Drop In and Decorate parties.

It is very simple. Make cookies including sugar cookies and drop them off at a single house.

Then make lots of royal icing in fun colors!

Let all the lil kids and the big kids run free and decorate all the sugar cookies!

Let the sugar cookies dry so they are perfect to create smiles! Then, bag up the 90 dozen cookies that show up at your house!(Seriously, that is how many showed up! Amazing!)

Staple an adorable thanksgiving card to each bag and get ready to bring lots of hungry people some delicious treats. We donated ours to the Minot Area Homeless Coalition, Salvation Army and the Domestic Violence Crisis Center.

75 bags of more then a dozen yummy cookies made many more happy holidays. ❤

      She truely has! I was amazed at the amount that appeared. Minot AFB is a very generous group of Airman. It is a pleasure to see them help out when asked. They really show up! The Minot Area Homeless Coalition and Domestic Violence Crisis Center each received bags of the cookies. The cookies also made it to the Thanksgving dinner at the Salvation Army!
