Easy Chicken Stew

In this house, leftovers equals stew. And stew equals easy cooking night!!! Once a week we have either roast chicken or roast beef. On our mini rotisserie, it NEVER gets dull. Always delicious. But because we're a family of 3, we never finish a full roast. So, what do you do with the leftovers? The answer is almost always STEW!

Monopoly Junior Rocks!

Our family loves spending time playing games together. We play video games, card games, and believe it or not, even nowadays.....we still play LOTS of board games! So when we had the chance to change it up a bit and play Monopoly Junior, we were sooo excited!

What the heck is Elf on the Shelf?

It's November 10th which means every single store is loaded with Christmas stuff already. But I can't lie, I absolutely love it! The music, the ornaments, the warmth! Our family loves the holidays and we go all out! We sing, we bake cookies, host Christmas parties, decorate inside and out. This last week while out at the mall, I notice that every store we went into had a huge display of these Elf on the Shelf boxes. I've heard of it but it's probably the one tradition we've never taken part in. What's the deal with elf on the shelf?

Embarrass your hubby in 5 easy steps

Our family is fun. We always take joy in picking on each other. Whether it's making fun of one another or pointing and laughing when someone falls down, we are all on an even playing field and nobody is off limits. Today I took pride in setting up my hubby for a great embarrassment and I will leave step by step instructions on how I did it.

I don't make my kid eat

Ya I said it. I don't make my kid eat. I'm not that kind of mom. You will never see Cooper sitting by herself at the table for hours waiting for her to "eat her brussels sprouts." I never understood why parents do that.

I hear it all the time. "My dad used to make me sit at the table until I ate everything on my plate." Or, "my mom sent me right to bed after dinner if I didn't finish my meal."

My Yukon man

You're from THE YUKON??? This is the exact reaction he gets anytime anyone hears where he's from. Me included. When I met Jason and heard where he was from I think my face scrunched up looking all confused, my eyes got big, my jaw dropped a little.....the Yukon??? Really?! That's near outer space right?
