board games and cookies

It is officially the winter in Cleveland. We were hit a few inches of snow which always puts a damper on my going out mood. Do I really want to drive in crazy weather? Um, no, so our friends Lia and Jesse decided to have game night.

There really was little gaming and more drinking and eating, probably more drinking than anything. Like usual, right?

My friend Lia dresses her dogs. In Snuggies

a drunken game of apples to apples

And Jesse sharing the art of breaking a bag over your head

Oops on my part - party foul but you can't see it, right? Sorry Lia!

On Sunday, I headed west to my aunt's house to bake cookies with my three aunts and grandma. And by baking cookies, I mean I frosted, decorated and sampled several of the cookies. Someone had to test them, right?

I helped by eating and frosting

This is week is a short work week for me because I'm taking some well-deserved PTO to prepare for this holiday weekend. Between spending time with my family and driving back and forth between the BF's house, I will need a few days of preparation for drinking and eating tons of delicious food.

My mother seems intent on buying my dog a dog snuggie for Christmas. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

I love game night! The cookies look delish too.
