A New Dish!

Since I am sick and only get to dream of food at this time, I thought it would be kind of fun to start sharing a favorite recipe once in a while. I'll see how everyone likes them and maybe this could be a once a week thing? So here goes recipe # 1, one of our favorites.

Swiss Chicken Casserole MMMMMM

6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (I use 3 breast and cut them in half)
6 slices of swiss cheese
1 (10 oz.) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1/4 c. milk
1 box of stove top stuffing (chicken or herb)
1/4 c. butter

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Arrange chicken side by side, overlapping just a little, in a greased baking dish. Top with Swiss Cheese slices.
3. Combine soup and milk and wisk together. Spoon mixture over chicken and sprinke with whole box of stuffing. Drizzle melted butter over stuffing.
4. Cover and bake at 350 for 50 min. and then Enjoy!

THREE !?!?!?!?!?!?!

Yes it is true, we are expecting baby #3! I think Avery is the most excited, when we told her she started jumping up and down asking if she could rock it and tell it stories! I have been sick, of course, but knock on wood have not thrown up yet. I have been supressing it to the max though, thinking that if I start I will not stop. Those of you who were not there for the first two, just know that I am usually hospitalized with I V's :( So this is a great thing to not have thrown up yet.
One thing that I am sooo excited about it that my amazing sister in-law Amber is due one month before me!!! Its allways nice to know they will have fun cousins to grow up with.
I'll post pictures as soon as the color of my face is something other than green!

So Proud Of You!

This is what I hate about living on what feels like the other side of the world, my awesome brother Sage graduated high school last month and I couldn't be there. I am so proud of him! When he and my other little brother, Creed, were little I would take them everywhere with me! They were more like my kids than my little brothers. I miss them everyday and I love the heck out of them!

The Pool Is OPEN!!!!!!!!!!

Anyone up for a game of "mermaid"? Ave and Linc can both show you how to play:) Poor Lincoln really needs either a brother or boy cousins to come over and play! Our pool opened up last weekend and the kids are in heaven! This year the pool is also a happy place for me as Lincoln is old enough to go in the kiddie pool with out me!!! woo hoo!!!!

Pre-School Graduation

Avery finished her first year of Pre-School. Four other brave mothers and I took turns each week teaching it. It was a good experience for Ave and Linc loved it when everyone would come over, but I think I'll just do home pre-school next year and Ave can have a lot of play dates. We all went to the park and had lunch and cupcakes! It was a lot of fun.
