  • Did somone say cookies?

    Margaret Glasford hosted her 15th annual Christmas party just prior to the holiday season.
    “It’s a fun family tradition,” Glasford said. “Everyone either bakes their cookies at home and brings them to share, or they bake cookies at the party.”
    Sugar cookies are the favorite, so the group baked and decorated over 200 of them. This year, many of the sugar cookies were baked ahead of time, she said, “so the little ones could start decorating as soon as they arrived at the party.”
