A boy and his....er...I mean his AUNT'S dog:

Last night for FHE we had a lesson on voting and politics. Daddy explained the voting process and what he liked and disliked about the candidates. Then we went around and talked about who we were going to vote for and why. When it was Gabe's turn and we said "who are you going to vote for Gabe?" he jumped up and shouted NIKKI!!!!! (or Nitt-ee in gabespeak) Then Sam said, GABE, you can't vote for a DOG for the PRESIDENT, so he thought about it for a few seconds and shouted OKAY THEN! AUNT SHAWWAAHH!!(Sharla) So funny! It is so nice of Aunt Sharla to have a dog for us that we can play with when we want to and then let her go back to her own house when we're done. :) She is SUCH a good dog, so good natured and sweet! Gabe just LOVES Nikki and includes her in almost ALL of his bedtime (and lately mealtime) prayers!

We love you Nikki!!

what's for dinner?

SOOOOoooooo..... I have nothing to cook for dinner tonight. I could make my friends' AWESOME Chicken Alfredo except that the chicken needs to bake in the crockpot for 3 hours and it is already 5pm. Upon checking the contents of my pantry I have come up with the following ingredients:

Halloween Candy
Halloween Candy
Halloween Candy
Can of Cream of Chicken Soup
Box of Cap'n Crunch

SO....I'm thinking about a "Cream of Snickers, Milky Way, 100 Grand, and twizzler casserole" with a side of steamed Cap'n Crunch. Should be awesome! OH, and did I mention we also have Halloween Candy? Maybe I should throw that in for dessert!

Hope you all have a wonderfully nutritious dinner, like ours. Go ahead and use my recipe, I don't mind sharing!
