What Happened at the Cookie Party Stays at the Cookie Party!

At least until those with cameras and much film in them post their snaps... But, I will give a few highlights.
  1. MommaBean took Mazen at his word and he had a supa dupa snowman waiting on his arrival (with snowfamily in tow, predicting fine things for him in the coming days...)
  2. Jad ate all of his creations, being super efficient so no effort was required to take home cookies
  3. Salam made one awesome cookie then retired. However once Kinzi's cookies arrived, she was inspired into series of classic, beautiful trees
  4. Hayat's Mom demonstrated that the talent runs throughout the family. And, then her little brother totally outdid them (but no one out did Mom's spring rolls)
  5. BamBam proved his worth (more than his weight in gold) on the marriage mart by not only being a decorator extraordinaire, but also baking a treat to bring with him (that's right ladies a man who can cook, I'll start taking bids at... oh wait, no...that's another reality show)

Okay, so that's all I'm going to tell. For those who didn't join us, you really missed out. For those who did, well you know what happened, so keep it under your hats. No embarrassing moments will pass my lips. Those are saved for the ones who came. Here's hoping you'll come next time!

Happy cookie eating!

T - You were sorely missed. But, we'll do a make-up cookie party early next year. oh, and if your kids are atthe same schools as ours, ahlan was sahlan (we already have ALL of those germs!).

Salam, as always it was wonderful to see you and I spoke to your other half after and poked him about not coming. He would have been such an awesome addition. Maybe we'll do a Konouz, Beans, and Salams party to get him to know some others and fell more at home with us crazy gals!

Hey, Lina, I missed it too (but not b/c I was working -- I'm doing that today -- but b/c I couldn't figure out which house it was).

 
At 4:16 AM , Blogger MommaBean said...

How embarassing for we beans. Couldn't bring Lina out of her proofreading stupor and Umm Zaid missed the candy cane welcome sign and bean-made paper chains... Well, we'll be sure next time! Missed you both and hope to see you soon.
