Enjoying November

With Madi home yesterday, we enjoyed together setting out the few Thanksgiving decorations we brought with us to Korea. Remember our thankful tree from last year...I do love it even more this year.

During my last few days in Georgia I found the most wonderful cross-stitch store. 2 or 3 days before flying out Steve's mom had taken Ben and Madi to the movies or to play and I went and spent like 2 hours daydreaming in that cute store. I did buy a few patterns and discovered all these new (new to me) dyed threads. Look at my pumpkin at the's a dyed orange and so is the brown. This little cross-stitch took was how I kept enjoying 4 nights a week of soccer and football practices.

Madi is home again today. She is even more stuffy. I feel so sad for her...the tissue stays held up to her nose. Our house smells like my pumpkin spice candle and Vicks.

Enchilada Soup
2 cups chicken broth
2 cans enchilada sauce
1 can chopped green chilies
4 chicken breasts
mix in crock-pot and cook on low 7 to 8 hours
Remove chicken and shred with fork then retun to cooker.
Stir in:
1 can black beans
12 oz frozen corn thawed
Cook on high for another 10 min.
We had this last night for dinner topped with shredded cheddar and served with blue tostitos that Ben and Madi think are funny. It was warm and really good.

Hi Jeni~

The enchilada soup looks so good! I will definitely be trying this out! I love crock pot meals. :)

I am so sorry to hear Madi has been feeling under the weather! And that totally cracked me up with the cheese puff/arm thing in the previous post! That is something my youngest would do. :)

Okay, and I am wondering if you have received the giveaway package you sent. I am very concerned because I sent it the day I said I was off to the post office, and it was only supposed to take about one week...I think it has been three weeks since it was sent. If you haven't received it, would you let me know?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! :)
