We really haven't had much going on. I've been enjoying the finals-free December and trying to soak up as much Christmas as possible. Although, somehow I also managed to completely ignore all Christmas shopping to the last possible second, again. In the past, I've always blamed it on school but now I think it just may be a bad habit. So, Morgan and I continued our Mall-of-America-One-Day-Shopping-Extravaganza tradition - we're on year 4 now. Basically, we get up super early in the morning, go out to breakfast, head to the Mall of America, and force ourselves to stay there until ALL of our shopping is complete. We have actually come to kinda like this tradition. We expect ourselves to get kinda crabby by the end, but for the most part just go with the flow of the super busy mall. Thankfully, the Mall of America has everything and we never have to worry about not finding what we need. This year our trip was significantly shorter than normal because Morgan and I didn't need to purchase any gifts for one another. We did, however, finally stop at Best Buy that day and purchase our new camera (which as I think we have mentioned before was our Christmas gift to one another this year).

|I made some more cookies. I stayed away from Martha's and stuck with my mom's recipe. Now, tonight I have to decorate them all.|
