I'll talk about it tomorrow (and post a picture of Eberlin), but for right now I'm sitting on the couch.  I just need to note a few more things for future reference:

For the acorn cookies - each cookie takes about 2 tablespoons of dough, and bakes for 20 minutes.  Remember that the mold doesn't contain equal numbers of right-handed and left-handed cookies.

For the boar's head:

Next year, try building the ears separately and baking them onto bamboo skewers, then inserting them on site.  I could build the inner shape out of foil, draping the crust over them, and then I would just have to lift the finished piece off.  Note - insert bamboo skewers into the main head during baking in order to form a hole for the ear skewers.  vynehorn  tells me that she suggested this to me last year and I said it didn't work, but I honestly have no recollection of it.  I'm sure she did, but I just don't remember.

There was something else, but I've forgotten.

EDIT: I remember!  I mentioned to jofglastingburi  that maybe next year someone else will do the boar's head.  She just laughed at me...
