This was so easy to make and it was rather yummy...at least I liked it and so did most of the family. The 2 little ones only like hamburgers, hot dogs and peanut butter and jelly, so they don't really count.
1lb. lean ground beef (or ground turkey)
1 onion chopped
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 (28 oz)can crushed tomatoes, undrained then fill the can with water twice for the soup
2 cans corn
Garnish with sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese.
In large sauce pan brown ground meat until cooked. Drain. Add onions and taco seasoning and mix cook 1 minute.
Stir in tomatoes,corn and water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
place in bowl top with cheese and sour cream.
It was quite yummy. Try it, it'll warm ya up on those cold days...not that we know much about that down here in the south!

in just three short months.....
I had my blood checked again yesterday and the doctor called and gave me the results....
Total cholesterol went from 220 to 170!!!!
LDL (bad cholesterol) went from 126 to.....92!!!!
Triglycerides they are improving still not in the normal range but I'm getting there they went from 300 to 250
Doctor said to keep up what ever it is that I am doing and I could come back for more blood in 6 months!!
I've lost 20 pounds since September, but I'm mostly glad I don't need to be put on any medicine for my cholesterol!!

He took the walk down the isle.....
NO NOT THAT one...
For months now he has been talking about accepting Christ into his heart and life and wanting to be baptized. Well yesterday at church he decided he was ready and made the walk down the isle to the front of the church to tell our pastor that he was ready. This is a big step for him, just walking down the isle to publicly profess this is big for him as he is an extremely shy person and always thinks everyone is laughing at him. Our pastor told him he was so very proud of him...our pastor and church have been with us every step of Marshall's journey so it was a wonderful day indeed!!!

Below are some that I attempted to take and see what I can do with them. Most of them are straight out of the camera...I have a trial version of photoshop and have yet to figure out how to do anything with it......I'm very un computer savvy.
(I'll put up the Christmas card later, we are at Marshall's infusion and I have no way to scan it to put on here and I'm too
This one would have been cute, but I didn't realize that the flower was in Amelia's face....
So I tried to photoshop it out and this is what I came up with.....
Not sure I like Amelia's face, she looks like a chipmunk.
Amelia being silly
