Yep, she’s a Boo! baby!
We’ll be celebrating all day today and with a party this weekend. I can’t wait to show you all the fun stuff we’ve worked up for that!!
It’s hard to believe that I was birthing my first child on this day in 2003. She brings so much joy to our lives on a daily basis!!! She is a HUGE help to me and the best big sister ever! She will make a wonderful mom someday….although she has said in the past that being mom looks like too hard of a job for her. 😉 She’d also be a GREAT actress ’cause ol’ girl LOVES her some drama!! She is our resident drama queen. Some of her favorite things are: reading, crafting, and singing. The hair band she’s wearing in this picture is her all time favorite possession. Her daddy brought it to her from Turkey in 2008 (yep, 3 years ago) and it rarely leaves her head.
Her name means ‘friend’ and she definitely lives up to that. She doesn’t meet a stranger. She is extremely kind and loving. She loves hugs and cuddles. I can’t wait to see how God works in her life in the years to come.
Today’s main dish, chicken tortilla soup, is another crock pot recipe. I LOVE my crock pot!! It just makes things so much easier for me and it will for you as well! I use it a lot on Sunday mornings. Most of the time, I do as much as I can of the prep work before hand. Cut 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breasts into bite sized pieces. Dice 1 onion and 1 clove of garlic.
Put it in your crock pot along with 1 can of corn (drained), 1 can of black beans rinsed and drained, 1 can of diced tomatoes, 1 box of chicken stock, 1 4.5 oz can of diced green chiles, cumin, chili powder, and salt and pepper.
