Chicken Enchilada Ring
2 cups cooked chicken
1/4 cup chopped black olives
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 small can chopped chilies, undrained
1/2 cup sour cream
1 package taco seasoning
2 rolls of crescent rolls
1 small chopped tomato
1 lime (juice)
2/3 cup finely crushed tortilla chips
1. Chop chicken and add olives, cheese, chilies, sour cream and taco mix. Seed and chop 1 tomato and add 2 tablespoons lime juice; add to chicken mixture. Reserve 2 Tbl. crushed chips and add remaining chips to mixture.
2.Unroll crescent dough and separate triangles. Arrange on round baking stone or cookie sheet making a circle with wide ends OVERLAPPING in the center and points toward outside. ( I did lightly spray oil on the cookie sheet I used). There should be a 5 inch diameter opening in the center.
3. Spread chicken mixture evenly onto widest end of each triangle.
4. Bring points of triangles up and over filling and tuck under wide ends of dough at the center of the ring.
Sprinkle with 2 Tblsp. crushed chips. ( I put shredded cheese all on top!)
5. Bake @ 375 for 20-25 minutes. Garnish with tomato and serve with salsa and sour cream.

I can't believe how quickly Eli is catching on to things that Chris and I say and do. This month his vocab has increased like crazy and he is watching every move we make. I mean, he can't even speak in sentences and yet is storing up all these little things he sees Chris and I say and do....scary.
Last week Callie, our first-born, (the dog) was really excited to see daddy when he got home and wouldn't stop barking. Chris used his leg to move her out of the way so she wouldn't knock over Eli. I saw him tap her with his leg and said "Don't let Eli see you kick her!" Two seconds later, Eli walks up to Callie and kicks her...ooops.
Today at lunch Chris started singing a song on the radio..."With our hands held high, we're sing'n" and then Eli in his highchair finished the lyrics with "Whoa, whoa oh". I was doubting his ability to pull something like that off, so I tested him later and he did it again. I am amazed.
It really has me thinking about the words and tone that I use every day. I see parenting as the biggest, hardest, most important job that I will ever have. It floors me just how quickly kiddos start picking up on those things. Thankfully, we listen to Christian radio pretty much all the time, so hopefully we don't have to worry about that too much. But, I personally really need to watch how negative I am in my speech in front of Eli. I really don't want to talk negative all the time to him or about other people in front of him. It is soooo hard, but I can only imagine the difference it makes in a family atmosphere.
Eeeekkkk! I have a lot to work on!

Here is just a taste of the cuteness from our "fire-drill" photo shoot with Eli while we were away for the long weekend. It is all that I can do to only allow myself to edit these and get back to the things I should be doing!
Hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday weekend!
