While I was making it my oldest was complaining that it had onions in it (of course if he had not seen me he wouldn't even know). I put it in the CrockPot for about 4 hours.
It was a hit!! I scooped some out and topped with cheddar cheese and sour cream with a few red pepper flakes.

Back in October our area finally was able to get DSL internet and of course since we have had to deal with the fun dial-up and then a internet data card we wanted to try it out. There was a write up in the local paper about DSL being available in our area with a phone number to call if we were interested. I called that number and talked to a guy named Andy, he explained everything to me and gave me the price of getting the service. I wrote down everything he told me (something I learned along time ago, if you cant record the information you NEED to write it down) and I told him I would think about it and call back. A few days later I called back and told him I would try it.
He explained that the package I will get included phone service, Caller ID, Call Waiting and 50 minutes of long distance plus the DSL service at 55.00 a month. I made sure I ask him if that price included taxes, he said YES.
OK on the first month the bill was very confusing because it had a bunch of pro-rated charges so I could not tell what was what but I did notice that I did not have 50 minutes of long distance so I called him and he told me that it should be on the next bill and it was that way because of the pro-rating.
WELL, this month I received what is suppose to be a "normal" bill and lets just say it is NOT 55.00. So I called the 1-800 number and talked to someone and they said they didnt know how he gave me that price. Of course the numbers she gave me did not add up either. So after I got the bill today I called Andy again and guess what his number that I called to get the service has been disconnected. Does that seem weird to anyone else?
Now my 30 days money back is over and I was lied to about what I was going to get and how much it was going to cost me. This is why I hate dealing with things over the phone because people can tell you anything and there is nothing you can really do about it. The other bad thing is CENTURY LINK is the ONLY land line phone service available in our area. Like I said I have been HAD!

After a long day of getting out boxes to Christmas decor I finally got our tree up. Now I have just got to keep the cat away from it. So far he has already slapped a ball off of it, chewed on the limbs, and pulled the lights (note the bottom of the tree) and its only been up a day. One year my youngest knocked the whole tree over so I guess worse things could happen. We just need some presents under it now!!
Here is a story about an art teacher and a group of children, all with different learning disabilities showing the world that they are capable of creating wonderful artwork. With help from a dedicated teacher these children work to collaborate their first professional art gallery exhibition. I would recommend this story to all parents, teachers, therapists, and people in the medical field. Its proof that people with disabilites in one area, exceed in others.
Go to "I'm A Artist" Website to purchase a download or DVD.
In closing I have gotten educated about store policies so if I missed out on an item today there is a good chance I will get another chance (plus I got to sleep in).
The craft I decided on was also from Family Fun website, it was called Dinnertime. It called for a paper bag, paper lunch bags, paper towels, scrap paper, tape, scissors, a staple and a willing child. I thought this was fun, but I did not have to wear it. I told them they had to wear them to Grandma's house tomorrow. I bet they won't do it. Hey, they were fun to make and made a good picture to show them when they are older.
Storytime. We read one Thanksgiving book and then one that wasn't. The first one was "Thelonius Turkey Lives" by Lynn Rowe Reed and the other was "Mouse Was Mad" by Linda Urban. I think me and the boys really enjoyed the Mouse book plus it had a good lesson about how you look to others when you get mad. A lesson is always a plus when reading to my kids.
I think now we are ready for Thanksgiving!!
