- Justin got a Shake Weight at his company's White Elephant exchange. It is hilarious. Even more hilarious? It's actually a killer workout!

- We're doing a cookie exchange tomorrow at Mom's group, and I honestly have no idea what I'm going to make. I was going to make brownies and top them with this cream cheese and caramel fruit dip that I make, but then I realized that the dip/frosting really needs to be refrigerated, and that's just a pain in the butt. So, I'd love suggestions for an easy but unique, nut-free cookie recipe. I need two dozen, and probably won't be able to start making them until 8pm. So, basically, I need something unique and delicious, but also easy. Tall order, no?

-I made Justin's Christmas present yesterday, and I really want to blog about it, but he reads this blog sometimes, so I can't just yet. But remind me to blog about it after Christmas--Lisa and Kait, I'm talking to you!

- Lizzy has been *so cute* lately. She's becoming more coordinated, and constantly does the "round and round" from Wheels on the Bus. I love that she'll do the motion once or twice and then applaud herself and say "Yay!". Also, she adores all her cousins, but she is especially enamored with Payton right now, and constantly walks over to the side of our fridge where Payton's school picture is, grins, and yells "PAY-PAY!!"  Lizzy doesn't know it yet, but I'm taking her to watch Payton and the school kids sing Christmas carols later today. She's going to be so excited :)

- I cannot believe that Christmas is next week. Ridiculous.
