All I Want for Christmas is Cookies: Cookie Swap Bounty

Last night the ladies of the IFA had a cookie swap. Here’s a picture of the full cookie bounty. By my reckoning, we had the following cookies (starting in the top left):

On Friday, the New America Foundation released a new report I wrote about early childhood education in New Jersey, so of course I had to take a picture with this New Jersey-shaped cookie my friend Laura made (and, yes, we realize New Jersey is backwards! It looked right to me standing behind it!):

  1. Sara, I just read the report – and I have to say, it was at least 14% more exciting picturing New Jersey cookies while reading it.

    But seriously, great report. Thanks!
