What am I making for Thanksgiving????

I am making my Broccoli Cornbread as usual for Thanksgiving. I am making three batches. Two to take and one for home as per Duane's request! I promise you this is so goooood! Everyone absolutely loves it and it's super easy! If you try it, let me know what you think. I am also making a few pies but that's it this year.


2 boxes Jiffy corn muffin mix(a must I've tried it with other and it's gross)
4 eggs, beaten
1 sticks melted butter or margarine
1 pkg. (10 oz) chopped broccoli, thawed and drained
1 medium onion, chopped
1 small container cottage cheese

I usually saute the onion in the butter. Combine all ingredients and pour into greased 9- X 13-inch baking dish. Bake at 375° for 35 to 40 minutes, or until lightly browned.

This my friends.....

Is my new bestest friend ever! Those who know me, know I love me some beer. And I have the extra 14lbs of summer fun to prove it. After a depressing visit to the GYN, I drove my big booty to Weight Watchers and then to the gym! I just discovered this new brew and it has only 1 that's right 1 point value on the flex plan. That my friends means I can drink the whole six pack! However, I only drank three tonight! I must admit it taste pretty darn good for only 64 calories! I am hoping to shed the 14lbs by x-mas. Wish me luck! FYI, I bought the one and only 18 pack at the grocery store because thats all they had. Apparently, others are on to this too! The beer guy at Duane's store said he can't keep the stores stocked!

Our Humble Bumble Bee!

While am at it, here is our little bumble bee! She had a blast trick-or-treating and boy did she do it well! After a about 10 house we went back to my brother's neighbor for a fish fry! Good times! Karlee kept her little antennas on the entire night!

Being silly.

Enjoying her cupcake!

Just happened to notice that today marked 3 years since we submitted our paper work to China! WOW! We have been home one year and 3 months! Some days it feeks like just yesterday was Gotcha day and others seem like she's been with us forever! I can not for the life of me, imagine our lives with out her! She has been everything I could have expected and more. Here are picture from here birthday!! (I know I am only a month late!)

A True American Hero!

What an amazing man John McCain is. I strongly believe he would have made an excellent president, but that was not to be. I dissagree with most of the president elects policies. I hope and pray he will stand up to the promises he made to the country. Time will tell......
