A Christmas Brunch
I've been having so much fun visiting family here in Texas! Tonight, my family is going to celebrate my birthday early (it's actually December 10th), I get to eat at my favorite Mexican restaurant (Chuy's), and have cake and ice cream.
Tomorrow, I'm excited to be the speaker at the ladies' Christmas Brunch at my family's church, Faith Baptist in Round Rock.
I'm also going to be making this wonderful casserole. It couldn't be easier to make, and it turns out absolutely delicious!
