I made this last night and it was so good..My family loves it

2 lbs of hamburger meat (or meat of your choice)
taco seasoning (1or 2 packs)
1 can of diced tomatoes
2 cans of corn
2 cans of pinto beans
2 cans of kidney beans
1 pack of dry hidden valley ranch dressing mix

brown ground beef with or without the taco seasoning. drain grease. then add all ingredients (adding water if needed....if you like more broth) and bring to a boil. pretty much once it's hot you're good to go. served with shredded cheese, sour cream and tortilla chips. YUMMY

Yesterday I tore threw my kids rooms..I started at 9am and didn't get done until noon..I was so tried of telling them to clean there rooms and I told them when they left for school they will come home to something different and boy did they ever..They came home and went into there rooms and said mom where is all my toys and things..I took everything out of there except there beds and dressers..I told them when they can keep there rooms clean they can earn some of there things back..Then I went thru the game room and did the same thing..They are unable to play the Wii or there play station2 until I can see a difference in them..

Today we had an eye apt for Michael and he has to get glasses he is near sighted..he got to pick out his own glasses and he should get them next week and I will take a picture of him and you all can see him..I think he looks really cute..
