mmm mmm good!

well it's not Campbell's but I love it just the same!! I found this recipe for chicken taco stew. it's so yummy this time of year. throw it in the crockpot and forget about it. one bowl and you'll be craving more. just wanted to share the wealth!!

2 cans chicken breast meat
1 (medium) onion, chopped
1- 15 oz can, corn
1- 28 oz can diced tomatoes (i like the petite chopped)
1- 4 oz can diced chiles
1- 15 oz can pinto beans
1- 15 oz can great northern beans
1 packet McCormick Chicken Chili

Don't drain any of your liquids, add everything to the crockpot. Cook on high 2-3 hours or low 4-6 hours. If needed you can add 1/2-1 cup water throughout cooking. Serve in bowls and top with Fritos, shredded cheese and sour cream!!

We finally made it to the canyons for photos!! I have been wanting to do this since the beginning of the "color change." I think Autumn has become my favorite season. Not too hot, not too cold, and the colors are beautiful!! Taylorann is becomming such a beautiful young lady. She is a very happy person. She loves life and lives it to the fullest. She has really stepped up to the plate in helping and supporting me. She is very quick to help with the boys, help with housework, and just in general be my friend. I love you Taylorann!! Karson Ray is 100% boy!! He is so completely tender hearted. He wants to know that he is doing good and wants to do his best in everything!! He is trying hard to get himself ready for his baptism next month. He played flag football this year and absolutely loved it!! Karson loves having the chance to be a big brother. Wrestling with Jaxon is one of his most favorite things to do!! Karson, you're indeed a blessing in my life!!
Jaxon Kade!! Thank you so much for joining our family!! The gift of having Jaxon become a part of our family came as quite a surprise, but nonetheless, he has brought a feeling of completion!! Jaxon brings love, happiness and smiles to our family. It has been so fun watching taylorann and karson celebrate the accomplishments jaxon makes. From smiling to laughing. From sitting to crawling. They love seeing him grow!! Jaxon we love you!!
