today was my families annual cookie exchange, it was nothing short of wonderful!! we had such a great time with the exception that hannah, bethany, christa and shalene couldn't be there. my mom made the most amazing lunch: pear vinigaeratte salad (lori this might be your new death row) veal with some cherry sauce (i didn't like the cherry sauce but everyone else raved over it), aunt lauries delicious rice, and some carrot and asparagus thingy. my mom said she officially has a new found respect for aunt laurie for putting it on every year. we had tons of fun and got tons of cookies. here are a few pics, nothing amazing but hannah wanted to see pics.
