Labor day!

As a 21st Century girl I commit a certain "sin" that I really need to work on:

I am horrible at taking pictures.

I never have my camera on me. And I always forget that I can just use my phone.

With that said, I have no pictures of this weekend even though it was an absolute blast!

Steven's sister Kina and her husband Kyle came up from Houston to visit us for the weekend.

(It is so fun that they live relatively close to us now!)

We went to the rodeo Saturday night.

Went to church, played lots of games and ate yummy food on Sunday. (speaking of yummy food, I tried out a new recipe for chicken and dumplings for the crock pot and it was a huge hit! I shall post the recipe later!)

And on Monday we attempted to go to the waterpark, but ended up leaving after and hour and a half because it was FREEZING! Texas has been ridiculously hot this summer, and then we get this "cold front" the day we want to play in the water. Figures. Oh well, we came home and played Settlers of Catan out by our pool and then went to a yummy burger joint.

The weekend came and went too fast, but it was oh so fun. Now were back to the grind of homework and studying-hooray.

-Crew of Two

Chicken and Dumplings

3 cans of canned chicken (I actually didn't like this too much and I think I'm going to use chicken breasts next time and then shred it)

2 cans of cream of chicken soup

2 cans of chicken broth (or you can make your own with chicken bullion)

1 bag of frozen carrots (I used the little circle crinkle cut carrots because thats what I had in my freezer-it was great)

1 bag of frozen peas (I omitted this ingredient because Steven doesn't like peas)

1 and 1/2 tube of Grand's flakey biscuits. (I purchased a normal tube and one of those half-sized tubes.)

Throw all of the ingredients except the biscuits into a crock pot and cook on high for 4 hours. Cut the biscuits into fourths and throw them in. Cook for an additional 40 min on high.

So easy. So yummy. I think I might be making it next Sunday again! Enjoy!
