We have had such a fabulous weekend.  My daughter was Baptized on Saturday.  All week she has been saying "I can't wait until my Bath-tism!"  Ha ha ha.. she is crazy!  Those in my family who did come all went to my in laws house for dinner afterwards.  We had Chili, Broccoli & Cheese soup, cookies, I made these, bread sticks, rolls, jello salad... it was YUMMY!  My Chili (well my good friend Michelle's recipe) was a big hit.  So big in fact that there was none left and my husband made me make it again today for dinner!

Michelle's Best Darn Chili ever....

1 lb extra lean ground Turkey
1 lb lean spicy ground turkey sausage (I squeezed it out of the casing)
1 can Chili beans, undrained
1 can Kidney beans, undrained
1 can black beans, drained
1 can diced tomatoes
1 package Chili seasoning
Medium onion, diced
Jalepeno, diced

I omitted the optional items this time around.  Not everyone likes that extra kick like me :)  Throw it all in the crock pot and cook on low for 4-6 hours.  Devour.  Its that good.

We got hit with our first snow fall over the weekend too.  I have to admit, waking up to a white world is a beautiful thing.  Walking out into it... not so much.  It is COLD.  Its going to be a really long winter for us.  Its been way too long since we have had to deal with an ENTIRE winter.  Not. Looking. Forward. To. It.

In other news, I had a job interview on Friday, and I have another tomorrow.  I am excited about both of them, they each have their pro's and con's like anything else but I am really really hoping that I get the one tomorrow.  I will tell you more about it when I know more!

So proud of her.  She is such a beautiful little girl inside and out.
