The Ninth Day of Christmas

On the ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...

9 different cookies
8 Muppet carols
7 fresh tortillas
6 chumps surviving
5 macaronis with cheese!
4 extra lunch mates
3 loaves of pumpkin
2 paid for dinners
And an off-limits box from Amazon!

The Geneva, the Pirouette, the Brussels (my favorite of the bunch), the Milano, the Orleans, the Lido, the Bordeaux (runner-up), the Chessmen (honorable mention), and the Lisbon.
It was eight o'clock at night, we were in Park City, and I had no idea of what to do for the ninth day of Christmas.  Lewis' parents needed to stop by Walmart to get some supplies for breakfast tomorrow, so we decided to see what we could see.

There are lots of food items that come in quantities of eight or twelve or even ten.  Tim Tams come in quantities of eleven (which you might already know, especially if you have followed my blog for an extended period of time).  But nine?  Not so much.

Thanks to my mother-in-law's keen eye, we discovered that Pepperidge Farm sells a box of cookies that includes nine different varieties.

Perfect!  Thanks, Pepperidge Farm.

Another day of Christmas fulfilled in the nick of time.
