Sunday night I baked a large patch of gingerbread cookies, a really large batch.  I used the cookies for three different reasons.  

#1- Elf on the Shelf Gingerbread Houses-Some of the kindergarten teachers at school have Elf on the Shelfs. I wish the Elf had been around when my girls were little.  I love the creativity of it and the magic.  I have seen the posts on Pinterest about the Elf.  I had all this gingerbread,but  I needed bake lots of cookies, wash clothes, clean the house, get ready for Christmas, but no I spent over an hour making Elf on the Shelf houses.  I had sooo much fun!  It was a truly creative for no good reason, my favorite kind of creative.  I took them to school and gave them to good Elf homes.

 #2 -Cookie Party- Another reason I made such a large batch of cookies is that we were having a cookie decorating party as school.  It was fun to see how creative everyone was.  It was also a relaxed atmosphere and a good time to get to know everyone better.

#3- Fund raiser for Relay For Life. Lisa (my co-counselor) and I believe in the work done by Relay for Life.  If you don’t know about Relay check this link out: www.relayforlife.org/. I can’t say enough good things about Relay for Life, not only does it raise money for cancer research and prevention, it empowers survivors, grieving families and gives the community a voice in this awful fight.  It is a tangible way to support those who are suffering from and because of this awful disease. Relay also unites communities in a shared purpose which is very powerful.
