I'm a Genius!

I finally took the time to figure out how to add the blogs I follow! I've wanted to do this a long time as I notice on some of your blogs ones that catch my eye, and hey, I'll admitt, I enjoy snooping on what and who interests you!
For those of you interested, just click on Customize, and then I'm pretty sure you can figure it out. I did have to go to all my favorites and write down all the actual addresses of my bloggy friends as it dawned on me "their titles" were not the thing I needed typed in... Oh, I was born a year or two too late for this to come naturally my friends!
Now, maybe you all will get more "hits" as we can share our lives and love for our families and Christ with others!
If you prefer not to have your blog listed, please let me know and I will remove snooping rights immediately! :)

Jackpot Casserole

We hit the "Jackpot" tonight with this recipe from Jared's Mom! Thanks again!

1lb browned hamburger (drained)

1 bag egg noodles (cooked and drained)

2 cans tomato soup

1 can creamed corn

2 Tablespoons of Worcesire sauce ( Yes, I know that's spelled wrong, and I'm too lazy to look it up.)

2 cups shredded Monterery Jack cheese

Mix all ingredients together in 9 x 13 sprayed pan.

Bake for 30 minutes @ 350 and sprinkle more cheese on the last ten minutes of baking.

Scratch That!

Ya , I finally konked out yesterday around five to wake up with a jolt a bit before eight. Here we come big day! Thankfully, Jared had already loaded the car, so I began feeding the herd...

KG: "My throat hurts."

Me: "Yes dear..."

KG: "My throat hurts Mamma!" (More drawn out this time all pitifull sounding again.)

Me: Mmmm. "Let's take a look." (Pause) "Great, big white blisters."


So I called the dentist and cancelled the long awaited dentist appointments. Who wants to dig in our germy mouths anyways?

I made an appointment for KG to be seen before we left in case it was strep again. ( Lexie did get it twice.)



Ring - Ring!

Jared: "I have good news and bad news."

Me: "Yesssss........"

Jared: "I'm in town this week for the first time in 7 months??"

BIG FAT PAUSE!!

Me: "I hope Thyssen doesn't care that I'm staying in Bismark this week and swimming and eating out ALL WEEK LONG!" ( cause' I'm charging them.)

Needless to say, I'm at home updating my blog instead.

Oh, and Keilah Grace has a respritory infection, and an ear infection, and a cold in her eye.
Anyone wanna come over for lunch today? We could play clinic!

It's 4:30 am. I should be saying good morning, but I haven't been to bed, so goodnight sounds nicer.
We're off to Bismark today to spend the week with Jared and swim up a storm and explore some new waterslides. It's been 7 months since Jared's been working in town and we need to get away together!
I don't know how relaxing it will be to be stuffed in a hotel suite for four days, but we're looking forward to it nonetheless.
Of course, there's still schoolwork to be done, but other than a visit with good friends, "field trips" are out due to the cold.
Well, we do have to hit the dentist in 6 hours, so I should haul my 6 FULL clothes baskets, 1 rubbermaid of lifejackets, diaper bag, purse, snowgear, snack/bottle bag, and 4 toy bins, 1 bathroom bag, and a few odds and ends to the entryway for future loading. (Not to mentin the double stroller and 2 pack n' plays)
Enjoy your week my friends! I'm sure we will!
