I made Chili again on Sunday and remembered to snap an after pic. However I thought I had white beans, but nope none at all :( so I used some black beans. They worked fine!!! Here is the link to the recipe that I used. HERE
I changed just a few things. I made it all in the crockpot and only used half a can of chicken broth. Chicken was also left in breast and then shredded down after it was cooked. There was more chicken this time around, and I almost could have used more broth to this chili. Then I also added a jalapeno for some KICK(seeds and all)!!! Super yummy. Make sure to add the whipping cream and sour cream at the end. Like the recipe I waited to add when I wanted one more hour of cooking. It lasted in our house oh two days with the left overs. Nothing got wasted from this deliciousness!!!!!!
Halloween is a great holiday! I love it! We do a lot of celebrating because we don't just limit Halloween to October 31st! The school where the boys go always does a Fright Fest, it's their ONE fundraiser for the year. It's always fun and we love to go! This year, Brian was not feeling all that well, and had to work the night shift so I took our three goblins by myself. Hence we did not stay too long. But we still had some fun. This year we didn't do a family dress up theme. I hate it! I love a good theme! So Ashlyn wore a princess dress and I added a crown. Teagan wore an old ninja costume, and Rayle had gotten a Green Lantern suit for doing some work at my mom's. However there was a run in the back side so he added some cool PJ pants to cover that up!
Ninja's and Green Lantern can get along!
Ready to go!
I didn't get too many pics but here is a slide they all went on. It was HUGE and Ashlyn had to figure out how to climb without tripping up on her dress. She did it!
Dancing to some music!
On Tuesday Oct 30th we had our Ward Trunk or Treat. It was combined with another ward and lots of fun. We had chili, cornbread, mac and cheese. There was a few bounce houses, a cake walk, and fishing for the kids. Lots of treats, and then of course the trunk or treating from car to car to get candy!!! Costume changes AGAIN. Rayle put on some clothes to go as Harry Potter.
I painted Teagan's face and he was cactus man or something like that!
Ashlyn had preschool party that day and I meant to repaint her face but ran out of time. I found this cool mask on pinterest and made it up real quick the night before!
Here is Brian's shirt I made him for Halloween. He is excited to wear it for me.
Actual Halloween Rayle went as Batman! Thank goodness for lots of choices right!!!
We went to Chipotle for dinner! $2 burritos for costume dress ups. The kids hated it! It was too spicy for them!
After dinner we went over to Brian's mom's and then to the Red Mt. MCC campus for their free event. We went last year and it's lots of fun. We went again with the Perkins. After we finished up there it was late and the boys had school so we went home. Oh we did take all three through a Zombie Ward at MCC. They all freaked out and I think we deserve worst parent award for scaring them. Oh well!
Brian and I got married on March 30, 2002. We are happily married with 3 wonderful children. We were blessed with Teagan in May of 2004. In June of 2006 Rayle joined our family. The newset addition is Ashlyn who was born in August of 2009. We love our children and they mean everything to us.
