Okay, first off, today Carson seemed to be a little better so I was able to play catch up on every one's blogs and get some housework caught up. It was so refreshing that we were acting a little more like himself. Now don't get me wrong, he's not 100% yet but I'll take the small improvement that I did get.
Coltan and Cody were in a soccer tournament this weekend. It is actually Coltan's team and Cody guest played. Well needless to say the boys team took first! I'm so proud of you boys. My mom went to all but one game and said that both boys played great. Coltan plays as a defender (closest to his own goalie) and mom said he did great. Cody plays on top and he scored a couple of goals as well.
My dad, step dad, mom, and two nieces came over and my dad cooked his famous chili for dinner while we watched the Chiefs. WOW, 1-8. Just not looking so hot.
So anyways, I have noticed that a lot of people are already blogging about Christmas. So this is the deal, I know I have a lot of friends that read my blog as well as a lot of lurkers. So this is your chance to delurk and help me out as well. Every year my Aunt Mary has Thanksgiving. Now everyone in my family knows that Aunt Linda brings Pumpkin pie and a corn casserole. Aunt Mary makes a rice casserole and of course the turkey. My mother brings a 7 cup salad and another one that I can't think of the name of right now. My sister is in charge of the store bought rolls, dad is the Tippins pie and I always bring my cherry/pineapple salad and hash brown casserole. So this is my plan...... I would like to take with me a new side dish and/or dessert. So this is all you have to do, leave me your favorite recipe in my comment and you will receive a chance to win. If you have a couple of recipes to share, you will get one entry per recipe.Now if you post it on yours and send me your link so I can check it out, you get an extra chance. I really would like for you to put a tried and true recipe on my blog. If someone else already has a similar one, put it on anyways. If it is that popular, I should be trying it out. I will put everyone who participates name in a hat and have my boys draw one name out. If I choose you, you will receive a $25.00 gift card to Wal Mart.
