We have had a great halloween in New Mexico. It is about 70 degrees tonight and the kids actually had quite a bit of stamina and managed to fill their bags full of candy. Of course I will have to make sure all the candy is safe, like dad always did for us.

This is the bee hive that we had in our backyard this summer.

We feel kind of like blog losers because we really don't do this often enough. So I'm trying to think of something to post. Janey has decided that she is NOT New Mexican, despite the fact that she really is. She does NOT like Green Chile. I am having withdrawals so I decided I am going to write about Green Chile since I can not eat it. So here is my "ODE TO GREEN CHILE."
This is my favorite soup right now and I'm dieing to make it. Sunni, did you ever find vegetables? I hope so. P.S. Green Chile is a vegetable:) P.P.S.Janey does not mind chocolate so life is still good, I'm pretty sure Gavin told me that chocolate is actually a vegetable too:)
Green Chile Chicken Soup
2 chicken breasts (cooked and chopped bitesize) or a can of cooked chicken
1 large onion (chopped and sauted until clear)
14 oz. can chicken broth
10 oz. can cream of chicken soup
8 oz. sour cream
1 cup green chile
1 can corn
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes or crockpot it. Serve with spinach (or whatever flavor you can find) tortillas. Roll the tortillas tight and dip in soup. YUMMY.

This is what we see when we chat with Sunni using Skype. It is AWESOME - just like being there with her except we can't hug:(
The time difference is a little tricky - she is 8 hours later for us and for the ABQ Gees, 7 for Carson and Deena and 6 for the NC Gees. Means we can only call on Saturday or Sunday in the morning. I hope you will all have as much fun chatting with her as we do.
Love you lots and love to hear from and "see" you all.
Love, Mom

Today I went to the parade for the 'hispanidad' (I know it's a HUGE holiday for all of you too...) I had to google it and see what we were celebrating. Any way all the military groups parade for the king to review his troops, including the king's calvary (who still wear chest armour and ride horses) and some kind of ski patrol that carries machine guns...(we need that, don't you think). I have no idea what the goat is about (we called this group the 'tight pants' brigade, who also think its 1970 and it's a good idea to show off your chest hair..hehe) There's also a few pictures from Retiro park (the big city central park) from a few weekends ago. Hope you all are well, un beso, Sunni
