Progress and some Deliciousness!!

Well, to start, let me tell you about our SUPER yummy dinner! And, it was super easy! :) We had Chicken Taco soup.
It's a Crock Pot one so, that right there spells easy to me!! And, it's snowing out so, soup was perfect! :) Wanna make it?? Here's the recipe!! :)
1 can tomatoes, with or without peppers
1 can pinto beans
1 can black beans
1 can chicken broth
1 packet taco seasoning
1 small onion, chopped
1 can of corn
2-3 chicken breasts

Mix the first 7 ingredients on the crock opt, then add chicken on top. Cover and cook for 4 hours. Remove the chicken and shred, cook another 2 hours. Serve topped with cheese, sour cream and crushed tortilla chips.

Now, for some family related progress! We made the mistake of letting Kadyn sleep with us from day one and have been trying to work with him on getting into his own bed. So, a few months ago, we moved his bed into our room and tried getting him to sleep in it, with little luck. A coupe weeks ago, I was out, and the guys were home. Brian called to tell me that Kadyn was asleep in his own bed, entirely of his own accord! So, we're back on the quest! Every time we go into Toys R Us, he ooohs and aaaahhs over the Cars bed they have. Granted, he loved his Elmo one when we got it but, that's beyond my point! So, we have told him that if he starts sleeping in his own bed, we will get him the Cars one. And, he's allowed to have a drink at night, as long as he's in his bed. We let him climb in with us at 5 or 6 in the morning but, otherwise refuse. Once he's sleeping in his bed, we'll move it back into his room. And, once the tax return comes, we'll get the Cars set and Craigslist his Elmo set. Each night we remind him that if he wants his Cars bed, he has to show us he can sleep in his Elmo bed. So, fingers crossed, this works for us! It's nice to have our bed back! Brian hogs it now but, I can kick him!! LOL

Wll, I guess I should go and enjoy my nice, empty bed. Brian's playing Call og Duty so, I'm stakig the big claim!! LOL Night!
