I saw the cutest little outfit the other day and just had to order it for Clayton! It's a little red long sleeve onesie with a reindeer that says "Baby's First Christmas", with a little hat to match and red and white striped pants.
I'm going to try to get some pictures of him in it - I'll post those later.
Merry Christmas Everyone!

We had a great weekend. D and I were so lazy on Saturday! It had been such a long time since we had any kind of down time that we completely took advantage of it! I stayed in my pjs all day long and D ran out and picked up some lunch and we watched the end of last season of 90210 and the beginning of this season that I had been recording and never had time to watch.
I think I got him addicted!
Sunday we got up and ran errands and did some Christmas shopping! Both of our families decided to draw names and exchange gifts that way so we really only have 2 people a piece that we have to buy for. But then we always by for our nephew and now we have a new nephew, so we had a few more stops to make.
We managed to get all of my baking supplies, wrapping paper, the kids done, and 2 of the 4 gifts that we needed to get, Coco's gift and stocking stuffers, everyone (except each other's stocking stuffers). By that time, we were tired and hungry and it was getting cold outside so we just headed home. All in all, I think we were pretty productive.
Now, we just have a few more things to pick up and a few more days to get it done. Wish us luck!
How is your Christmas shopping going?

Today, we're having a Christmas Potluck at work. I'll be roasting a turkey (provided by the office) and everyone will be responsible for bringing all of the sides and desserts.
It's a lot of fun in our office because everyone participates and we've got a lot of really great people in the office, so it's a joy to sit around the table with everyone and laugh and cut up.
This year, I have decided to bring Squash Casserole. Now, this doesn't sound that tasty to some, but fear not dear friends - you won't be turned off by this buttery, cheesey casserole. It's devine!
- 5 yellow squash
- 5 zucchini
- 1 medium onion (yellow or white)
- 2 sleeves of Saltine crackers
- 1 large Velveeta block
Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, fill a large pot with salted water and place on the stove over high heat. Wash the squash and zucchini and then cut into slices. Chop the onion and then put all of the squash, zucchini and onion into the water. Boil until everything is tender and falling apart.
Drain the squash and then mash with a potato masher. Break up the crackers until you have cracker crumbs. You can either put them in a ziploc (and then put them in another ziploc) and beat them on the counter, etc. or you can put them in a food proccessor and pulse.
Add the cracker crumbs to the squash. Then, cut half a block of the velveeta into small cubes and add to the cracker/squash mixture. Stir around until all of the cheese is melted. Pour into a greased 13 x 9 baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes.
Oh, and if you like hot/spicy things... You can seed a couple of jalapenos and dice them up and add to the mixture before you bake.
I promise you - you'll love it!
