Christmas is here!! Carols are playing, lights are out, and trees are getting decorated. I love, love, LOVE Christmas. Black Friday hits and my house is playing nothing but Christmas music until January 15th. So my mom, sister and I all got together with the kiddos for a super fun CHRISTMAS CRAFT DAY! (You can imagine my crazy excitement). We did about 3 or 4 crafts total, making everything from Santa's house in the North Pole, to yummy delicious colored chocolates, to the kids making glitter snowmen. We had a blast! I took photos of one of our crafts, a Christmas Card Wreath, to post a little DIY so you can all try at home... they all turned out so cute! Hope you give them a try! :) Check out the Pinterest Christmas board for more ideas and DIY for the holidays... Pinterest Christmas Board

Officially back in Arizona now, but had a WONDERFUL break for a couple weeks in Maine with my husband's amazing mom and stepdad! We had the privilege of spending Halloween with family along the gorgeous streets of Freeport, Maine and our cute little kitty cat looked adorable as she trick-or-treated for her very first time!!! The architecture and scenery in Maine and pretty much all of New England is traditional and beautiful (as well as a nice break from stucco and adobe). We were lucky enough to stumble upon gorgeous weather while we were there as well as a freak one-day snow storm just before Halloween. All said and done, it was a fantastic trip, memorable and family-oriented, and couldn't have gone better. I'm already missing Maine, but it's always good to be home. :)

I've been in crazy casserole mode and I'm running out of new casseroles to try! Sunday is my new casserole day. I make them big and fresh so my family has leftovers for lunches during the week! I love how simple casseroles are, whether they are a side dish for the evening or a complete meal! They may get a bad rap sometimes but I'm thinking they are pretty delicious ;) Any special casserole (or one-dish) recipes, books, or web site faves? Let me know // I'll post the ones I try! Below are some photos of my favorite one-dish or casserole recipes! I'm getting hhhhuuuunnnnggggrrryyy!
