December Daily 2013 {Day 13 + Day 14 + Day 15}

Wednesday is finally here!

It seems like its been a long week, and I'm not sure why. I was just thinking that when I was a kid, December moved so slooooowly, and as a grown up, it goes by too fast. That's when December decided to slam on the brakes. I'm grateful, because it gives me more time to enjoy every moment of this awesome season.

And this weekend was the perfect time for time to slow down a bit. We held our {now annual} Cookie Exchange Party! I so love this party, and was so glad we held it again!

Since we were hosting our cookie party on Saturday, we spent all of Friday cleaning up around the house. Well, AJ did most of the cleaning Friday while I was at work (although I did help out by making sure all of the clutter and things were put away so he could do the more heavy duty things, like scrubbing floors and such!)

Saturday was party day! I decided to make my extra special Santa Cupcakes this year. Normally these are treat that my family saves for Christmas Eve, but I thought it would be fun to add them to our cookie table!

Can you believe how many cookies and treats we had left over? And that is after everyone packed up cookies to bring home! Our tummies + freezer are full of cookies now. And I even brought two big containers into work!
The day after a party is always a day to relax in our house. I was still pretty wide awake after everyone left, so AJ and I cleaned up from the party (leaving out only those cookies in the picture above!) so when we woke up Sunday, we had absolutely nothing to do! Well, AJ had to work, and I had to do some paperwork + run an errand. But aside from that, we had nothing to do! I spent the afternoon scrapping and drinking tea from my Spode mugs.

Do you feel like time has slowed down yet this month? Or is it still flying by for you? I really really hope it stays slowed down - especially when we are spending time with our family!

Fun pages!
Sounds like the cookie exchange is a lot of fun :)

Honestly, things are a little crazy here. I am looking forward to Christmas day and the week after when I know things will slow down and we can all relax!

Great pages and I love your cookie exchange party! I felt like this week was going by so slowly since it's the last week before our break but now it feels like it's flying!
