CROCKPOT GREEN BEAN CASSEROLE

http://crystalandcomp.com/easy-recipes-crockpot-green-bean-casserole/

This is seriously good and easy. Leave your oven space for the turkey and pie... toss the side dishes in the slow cooker!

#thanksgivingrecipes #easyrecipes #greenbeans #crystalandcomp
I love an easy green bean casserole recipe and this one is perfect! To be able to make it in the crockpot makes it so flexible, especially during the holidays. Easy recipes like this are my favorite. Specifically for any holiday this makes preparation so much easier. Frees up the oven space too! T…

Take your homeschool reading time to an entirely new level..... with ice cream, a blanket and the outdoors. And your favorite book, of course.

#brioicecream #homeschool #kidsactivities #crystalandcomp
One of our favorite things to do lately is sit around reading together in the afternoon. Part of our homeschool day includes read aloud stories and poetry. I want my boys to grow up with an appreciation for words. Sometimes we read in the car, while we’re waiting on another brother doing baseball pr…

Two days before Christmas and shopping is hectic. Sometimes people can be easily frustrated. We drove from Hurst to Plano with four of our boys hoping to find a scooter one of our boys would like for Christmas. The drive was far but worth it. The service was excellent and the owners were super patient with my indecisive children (including a 2 year old who was totally over stimulated). We left with 4 scooters that will make perfect Christmas presents. They even did adjustments while we were there. Quality service is lacking today in our busy world. Kudos must be shared when service is awesome! Thanks guys, excellent job!

STEER CLEAR OF Jefferson Dental Clinics in HURST!!! I am so hurt and insulted right now. Our little Nick, who is 8, was up all night with a toothache. Apparently a cavity had developed in between two of his back molars and was causing him a great amount of pain. Being that this facility is so close to our house and they could get us in so quickly, we scheduled the appointment and my husband took him in this morning. Immediately they would not allow my husband to be with Nick while being examined or while x-rays were being done. All of this went against my husband's better judgement. But Nick was in pain and he wanted help for our son. Once a dental plan was established they began the work and told my husband it would take about 45 minutes and again no one could be in the room with him other than staff. This made my husband very uneasy. After that time passed my husband asked if he could see Nick. At this time is when Lenny found out they had left Nick in a room all alone CRYING and had not even started the work. They said he was uncooperative because of his anxiety. Who does this to a child?!?!?! I have called their offices to complain and express my concerns and there is ZERO accountability or empathy on their part. Immediately the office manager (Rosie) dismisses the situation blaming my son for being uncooperative! I asked how was he uncooperative and she said he has anxiety. Her opinion was also of the mindset that we did not have to seek services at their facility. On top of this, as parents we have been made to feel like we are a problem to this office. Please guys, this is the last place I would take a child for dental care here in the HEB area. Of course I will continue to make phone calls to express my concerns to their headquarters but local folks please give great consideration before ever taking a child to this establishment. In my years of raising kids this is the first place I have ever experienced that does not encourage parents being involved. Well, except for the payment. They happily accepted parental involvement there, of course. Please share with any Facebook friends who have kids here in the area!
