Happy Thanksgiving

We went to Peter's parent's house for Thanksgiving and Katie and Hannah wanted to stay the night. So this is the project that I worked on while they were gone. I was trying to copy something I saw on the Pottery Barn website. You can check it out here-
I misplaced one of my boards so for now this will have to do.

I hate sickness

So we've been pretty non-existent from everywhere lately. It seems like someone has a fever, yucky nose, pink eye or needs a handful of trips to the bathroom each hour quite often for the past week. But we are hoping that we are on the mend. I was loving Colorado and how my kids seemed to be able to get better all on their own without a trip to the doctor. Well, we managed to not have to go to the doctor thanks to some eye drops from a friend and we are hoping to enjoy more friends and outings for the holiday break. My goal for my kids this week is for only one of them to wake me up one time in the middle of the night. One night this week I think I slept an hour-not in one session either. I have had less sleep than I do when I have an infant.

Chucky Kong Pie

Chucky Kong was Peter's least favorite missionary food. It was a little bit of everything and I mean everything a family could find to put in a dish for dinner-it was not limited to meat, bread, dairy, vegetables, fruit.
Well I made my own Chucky Kong Pot pie tonight and it turned out great-It must have been good because there was none left and Peter didn't use BBQ sauce on it.

Here is the recipe-all the ingredients were leftovers

2 pork chops cooked with season salt and cut into small pieces
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup evaporated milk
1/2 can corn
1/4 cup beans
1 can veg-all mixed vegetables
1 1/2 cups cooked white rice
1 pie shell(cooked)
1/2 cup red pepper chopped(only in half-the girls don't like them)

Mix all ingredients together and put in pie shell. Top with cheese and cook at 350 until hot.
