A Recipe for Thanksgiving

We're going to my in-laws for Thanksgiving and my MIL asked me to make my crock-pot corn recipe, so I thought I'd share it with you...

Slow-Cooker Creamy Corn

2 pkg. (16 oz. each) frozen corn
1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese, cubed
1/3 cup butter or margarine, cubed
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper

In slow-cooker, combine all ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours, or until heated through and cheese is melted. Stir well before serving.
Yield: 6 servings

I used this recipe last year & it was a big hit! If you try it, let me know how you liked it! :)


Starting my December Daily Album

I heard about the Dec. Daily album (Ali E.) just a few weeks ago & I'm really wanting to make one! So, yesterday, I gathered a whole bunch of papers & other stuff that I might possibly use, spread them all out on the office floor and... just stared at it for a while! I was stumped! LOL!
I think I've finally come up with a design for the cover, but now my baby is very fussy & I've been holding him all evening - can't scrap like that! I really would like to get it done before December starts! Guess I'll just have to sneak it in whenever I can. I'll post pics here when (or "if") I get it done...

New mini-book

My hubby has been away for several days & I miss him like crazy! I was going to work on my December Daily album, but my 3 yr. old kept on interupting me. So I get the bright idea to let him scrap (forgetting that every time I do this, I get nothing done!). I thought, wouldn't it be great to give him some pics of him & his daddy and let him make his own book! Well, I started picking out pics & got so excited about it that I wanted to do the album myself! :) Besides, my little guy was busy coloring a picture by that time! LOL! So here is the end result...

The cover... "You're my buddy""You teach me" and "You're silly""You take me places" and "You play with me" "You tell me about Jesus" and "You love me"
"You spend time with me" and "You guide my life"
The album is only 4x5" big and last page was a little note to his daddy & then a traced outline of his little hand. Thin…
