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!

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?

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 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."

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?
