cornhole, corndog casserole and teacher's gift

just answering a few questions from a loooooong time ago.......

corn hole.
this is a game we never heard of until we moved to the middle of ohio.

the corn hole boards are set a certain amount apart. you take turns throwing the 'corn bags' (like little bean bags, but filled with corn, dried corn) in attempt to get them in the hole.


(i can't believe there is an american cornhole association.)
i am so not that into it.

in fact...
im not so good at this game.
unless im holding a kid on my hip.
then i have better balance.
or something.

here is one of dave's homemade boards.
(kindly modeled after a friend's set) and cohen's mock cornhole game.
back in august.
(which is when rorie asked me what cornhole was)


corndog casserole.
an easy fun recipe that the kids like.
i do too.

Pour one large can of Bush's baked beans in an 8x8 pan.
Cut up some hotdogs (you decide how many...) and mix them up in the beans.
In a separate bowl, mix a box of cornbread as directed on the package.
Add some cheddar cheese (you choose how much...) to the cornbread mix.
Spread the cornbread mix over the beans and hotdogs.
Bake in oven as stated on the cornbread box, or until cornbread is baked through.
(I brought that to this party back in september... when rorie asked what corndog casserole was)

teacher's gifts.
this year, lilly only has 1 teacher.
(the past 2 years we had 3 teachers!)

(and i don't think her teacher reads here... so i can share.)
but.. if you are reading, Mrs. H... please stop here :)

I already made up a medium monogrammed tote.
With her favorite color.
green.
(I've also made a handful of these for customers to gift to their kids' teachers. It's fun to fill them up with goodies!)

I am also planning to make another one of these cozies (this one was for my friend Ali's bday)....
...displayed on a cup and filled up with a small giftcard to Starbucks and some candy.
if there is any candy left in this house.

I normally do monogrammed handtowels and bath & body works soap.
but im not sure if that goes well with the whole coffee idea.

I do love the LBE totes, because they make such nice re-usable bags!!
and im not just saying that ;)
i do love them.

(hope that helps denise! even though christmas is just days away now....)

p.s. I will try to be much more prompt in answering my reader questions from here on.

Thank you! I feel so much smarter now. ;)
And that casserole sounds yummy. Sadly, it has meat and beans in it so my kids would shun it. How did I end up with such picky kids?

Corndog casserole. Who knew?! Sounds like something we'd make in the Sawyer house. And I LOVE your ideas for teacher gifts. So cute! Emma's teachers are both Disney fans so I ordered them cute Disney aprons. Mason's teacher is a football coach (crazy huh?!) who likes the NY Jets so we got him some stuff during our trip to NY last month. I'm also doing the caramel dipped/then chocolate dipped pretzel rods for everyone. We do the bus driver too. SO much fun coming up with gift ideas!!
