Cookie Exchange

I went to my first cookie exchange yesterday.  Not sure what to expect, I went with a huge question mark over my head.  I heard rumors of possibly dinner and games after the exchange.  Due to schedules, I had my son with me, and he wasn’t excited about spending any more time there than necessary. …

Toxins
