The B&B Holiday Cookie Tour has once again been a tremendous success. For those of you unfamiliar with the tour, the local B&Bs open their doors to the public for an opportunity to view Christmas decorations and at each inn they also get a cookie and the recipe card for that cookie.
This year we had over 700 people through the Addison. Two of the many decorations really struck a note with the guests. The first was the heavily ornamented Christmas tree in the front room. No garland, no popcorn strings, just lights and ornaments. So many ornaments. Someone said there is 863 ornaments on the tree.
The second big attraction was the pirate sock monkey tucked into a sleigh on top of the breakfront by the kitchen. Sometimes in life you have to look in the back corners to find the treasures.
Shannon did a great job with the decorating this year. I do the heavy lifting (put up the tree, string the lights…) but it is her decorating sense that really makes the decorations stand out.
