My baking time has been interrupted by this monster who watches for us to leave the pantry cracked open and then runs in and gets as many cookies as she can. It hurts my feelings a little that she is smarter than us, and has been for several years.
As for dessert, this year I plan to bring it. More room = more desserts! There are several new desserts this year, along with some of the classic favorites. Thanks in advance to those of you bringing appetizers. It helps in more ways than you know.
