december daily 2014: week #3

Hello! Excuse me for disappearing for a few days. I'm sure you know the reason: I had a bajillion gifts to wrap. ;) If you celebrate, I hope you had a very merry Christmas! :)

I've been working hard to catch up with with my December Daily in my down time (which hasn't been often). I worked on it a bit last night. This is unstyled photo of the state of my dining table/house.

I'm finally ready to share week #3 with you. :D
december daily 2014: week no. 3
At the beginning of the week (day 14) we celebrated Jenna's 21st birthday. I blogged about the party here. I included a large spread in my December Daily book:

There was room on the previous spread for a picture. I included a picture of all of us in our masks on that spread:

At the end of the day 15, Jesse took the girls to get a Christmas tree. We weren't able to decorate it that day. I included a picture of me snuggling with Juli in the morning. (So sweet). On day 16, we went to Lani's concert at school. Then on day 17 we were finally able to decorate the Christmas tree. I included a spread with just pictures. I couldn't narrow them down.

The next layout includes days 18, 19, and 20:

On day 18, Addy got an award from school in the morning. In the evening, we went Christmas caroling with Lani's club from school. It was very fun. We all had a good time.  My birthday was on Dec. 19. On the 19th we celebrated with a simple dinner of sandwiches and salad. (We made these sandwiches with roasted jalapenos like this sandwich. My sister Jennifer made a delicious salad that I will be sharing soon). On day 20 we went to my mom's house for lunch. She made chiles rellenos. I made chocoflan. That evening we came home and watched Home Alone. We really enjoyed seeing it. My girls had the best reaction to it- especially Addy.

That's it! There's only a week and a half left of December to do!
