I have been "a little" busy... :)

Yes, I have been just a little busy these past couple of weeks. Fourteen different kinds of cookies, double batches of each kind- baked more than 1,400 cookies all total in less than 10 days. My family does think I am nuts. And i do admit it, I am nuts- especially for nuts (11 out of the 14 kinds of cookies I made have nuts in them- almonds, walnuts, pecans, peanuts, pignoli, you name it). Here are a few pictures:
