New do

Ombré is what I set out to have done to my hair.  I do love it!  From all appearances several feet away the hair color looks good but the hairdresser did make a few mistakes so I need to get them corrected but here is the look.  I do really really like!!

Whatcha think?

Answered Prayers

When God looked at me he knew what I needed in my life and that included this sweet little guy.  

He is my saving grace, sense of normalcy and such a blessing to me.  He doesn't try and see what he can get away with just because he can.  He is a normal kid and I love him so so much!  Thank you God for this sweet little boy.  My son.

Annual Christmas Pictures

In an effort to save money, I've started taking our annual Christmas picture and try to photoshop it.  So far it has worked out good and the pictures come out really good.

The top one is my fav but the bottom one looks like it would be good to send as Christmas cards.  

Merry Christmas!!

I'll post more pictures of Christmas destinations soon. We've had a busy couple of days.

Thanksgiving Memories

This is me first thing this morning.  Real party pooper.  Maybe it was because I got up so early but I wasn't ready to shine yet.  

Then the day brightened when I saw these two!


Special Moments.

Is it just me or did they add an extra gaming strategy with the fire and ice in Sorry?  I don't remember that from when I used to play when I was younger.

She is much braver than her momma. I could never hold a turtle like that. 

Check out that turkey.  It was so moist.  I used the brown paper bag method.  I had it drowning in chicken broth, Rosemary, Thyme and butter.  Perfect!

I found this and thought it was perfect for the day.

Hope your day was special.

Ill leave you with these two silly kids.  :-)

They wanted to talk to Santa yesterday at the mall.

Crockpot Sunday

Crockpot meals are the best!

I pulled out the recipe book today to come up with something tasty.  I ended up making Crockpot Chicken with Black Beans and cream cheese.  So good!  I'd definitely recommend but I'd also recommend using low fat cream cheese. It tasted really rich.  Here is a pic.

Ingredients: 1 can of black beans
                   1 can of corn
                   1 jar of salsa
                   4-5 frozen chicken breasts
                   1 bar of cream cheese

Chicken was cooked through thoroughly.

Would definitely make again.
