Teriyaki Chicken - Slow Cooker Meal

I found this awesome recipe for Teriyaki Chicken over at The Test Kitchen of Melissa Fallis she has incredible recipes for Pre-Prepped Freezer Meals for your Slow Cooker.  I changed it up just a little bit.  Might I add that the house smelled sooo good!  YUMMY!

Teriyaki Chicken
One Small Bag of Baby Carrots
1/2 Red Onion cut in large chunks
1 Can of Pineapple Chunks
1 Red Bell Pepper
4 Garlic Cloves chopped
1 cup of Teriyaki Sauce
I set my slow cooker on high for 3 hours and on low for 2 hours.

Doesn't this look DELICIOUS!!!

  I served this awesome dish with some brown rice and my kids LOVED it!

Halloween Games

I've been looking for some great Halloween games to play at Emma's Halloween Birthday Party and I've found some great ones.  I did purchase some at Target that looked like fun including Web Splat, Pumpkin Bean Bag Toss, and Halloween Bingo:
I'm definitley going to try some of these I found on Pinterest:

My husband and I took the kids to the pumpkin patch today and I got these great progression shots of my son helping his little sister up the great HAY PYRAMID.  It's little things like this that make life so sweet!

Monster High Party Theme

My daughter is obsessed with Monster High.  She will be turning 5 in late October and I'm gearing up for her Monster High/Halloween Birthday Party.  Since Monster High is a bit creepy I think it will mesh perfectly with the Halloween theme....don't ya think?  She wants to dress similar to Clawdeen Wolf, but she says she wants to keep her blond hair. This is good because when I put the Clawdeen wig on her it looked as if she had no eyebrows and I don't think I could successfully draw on brown eyebrows without her looking something like MOMMY DEAREST!  Ha!  Some of the costumes are a bit in-appropriate for a 5 year old so we're going with our 'little girl' friendly version that I found online at Children's Place and my daughter LOVES it.  I did end up removing the sparkly top of the outfit because it was a bit Christmasy so I bought a black shirt instead.  She really looks cute in it!  Happy October all!!!
