Family Food Faves

I have a recipe for White Chicken Chili that has been a family favorite and crowd pleaser for years.  BUT, not as good as this one!  Just came across this YUMMY recipe at This was a HUGE hit in the Richardson household tonight and it will definitely be replacing my old recipe! 
Easy White Chicken Chili

Serves 12-14
1 T olive oil
1 1/2 medium onions, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 – 4 oz. cans of chopped mild green chilies
2 t ground cumin
1 1/2 t dried oregano
1/4 t cayenne pepper
2 – 16 oz. cans of Great Northern Beans, undrained
6 c of fresh chicken stock (or canned broth)
4 c of chopped cooked chicken (I used store-bought rotisserie chicken)
3 c of shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 – 15 oz can of Gold and White Corn
Tortilla Chips

1. Heat olive oil in a large stock pan over medium heat. Add onions and sauté until translucent (approximately 10 minutes).
2. Stir in garlic, chilies, cumin, oregano, and cayenne pepper. Sauté for 2 minutes.
3. Add undrained beans and chicken stock and bring to a boil.
4. Reduce heat and add chicken, cheese, and corn. Stir until cheese is melted and chicken is warmed through.
5. Serve with tortilla chips and get your Soup On!

First Day of Preschool

I ADORE my children.  I LOVE to spend time with them.  I consider them HUGE blessings.  BUT, I shed NO TEARS when I dropped them off for their first day of preschool today!  They are ready...I am ready!

They will be attending 4 days a week from 9-12.  Everyone is so welcoming and friendly at the school.  I feel like we made a good decision to send them here.

Bryce is standing on his tiptoes to be as tall as his brother!

New house.  New state.  New school.  And a huge backpacks!

YAY!  Daddy got to go with us on their 1st day!

Bryce and Drew have done so awesome with all of this transition.  Having our house on the market for 90 days, selling our house, movers packing up everything, 2 days of traveling and moving to a new home in a new state.  I am so proud of them!  I'm thankful that they are so adaptable!

I am also thankful that we had a moving crew pack us, move us and unload us...they were amazing!!!

The first night we moved in, I captured this precious moment...Bryce holding Drew's hand in bed!

Having a pool has definitely helped make this transition easier and more fun for the boys.  They are having a blast!

Bryce chilin' with Papa Jim...this is the life!

Our New Home

We arrived safely at our new home in Georgia a few days ago.  So far, we are loving it.

My favorite thing about our new house...

A beautiful pool and hot tub looking out to the golf course.

The boys' favorite thing (in addition to the pool)...

The doggy door!

Better get back to unpacking!

New Camera

Life has been crazy busy the past 6 months.  We are in the process of relocating to Georgia (more on that later.)  Thought I would get a few recent pics uploaded of the boys, per the Grandparents, before we got on the road!!!

Daddy's Lil' Helper

Bryce LOVES to help Jimmy mow the grass.  They both put on their protective gear (we're a very safety-conscious family!) and he will sit with Jimmy for several hours driving the John Deer! 

But, when this boy gets tired, nothing gets in the way of his nap!!!  Bryce fell asleep for 20 mintutes so Jimmy just kept on mowing!

On the actual day of Bryce & Drew's birthday we enjoyed a quiet day at home...just the 4 of us. They opened their presents from us and then we just played together.

We got the boys their first LEGO sets and surprisingly they sat for 1 1/2 hours putting all those little pieces together...with our help, of course! 

Nana, Papa & Teal were flying in the next week so we waited until they got here to do their birthday party.  The boys picked out the Curious George theme and we invited all of our friends to come "monkey around" with us at Happy Kids - a bounce house place.  We all had so much fun!  I brought coffee for all the adults so we could visit while the kids played.


Thank you Grayson, Andrus, Liam, Lakyn, Keenan, CJ & Cannon (and parents!) for celebrating our birthday with us.  We had so much fun with you and are so thankful you are our friends!
