Project Santa CAUSE Cookie Update

I just wanted to give everyone an update on how well our 1st Project Santa Cause went.  Drum roll please...............we raised $1,000 for these women in Ethiopia!!!  I was supershocked that we sold this many cookies but so amazed that we were able to support 2 women with this money.  I want to thank everyone for spreading the word about this fundraiser and all of those who helped by buying cookies.  This project would not have been successful without you!  Also I want to thank my mom, who helped me for countless hours making and sprinkling the cookies, and Grant who was on kitchen clean up duty and in charge of making sure Denver stayed out of the kitchen.  I think he had the hardest task of all.   For those who are interested in the breakdown of everything, here it is. 

We sold 37 dozen which boils down to about:

Well over 24 hours but I stopped counting (no, this is not all at once.  I require about 9 hrs of sleep)
17 eggs
22 sticks of butter
17 lbs of flour
7 lbs of sugar
12 lbs of icing
I didn't keep track of spinkle amounts or flavoring. 

Thank you, Thank you and Thank you!!!

I will leave you with some pics of the cookies.

Hope you all had a very blessed and merry Christmas.  Wishing you a wonderful new year!!!

Much Love
