To catch-up we have had a fun fall/winter so far. Memphys turned 2. We did a constriction/Tractor party and he loved everything! Especially his Hulk hands and Mask from his aunt Misty. Needless to say, everyone got a punch before they left.
For Halloween Memphys dressed up as a Rooster, and My mom scared him with her face paint...
Brandon's Grandpa passed away, and they painted some flames on the casket for him...It turned out to be so cool!
We went to the Zoo and It was super fun, especially the polar bear, Bears and the Merry go round.
We also have had Many different sets of Family pictures taken this Fall....Way too many! But they are so cute! Thanks to Ashley Wright Photography for all the beautiful images.
One of my great friends Erin took these for Memphys B-day invitation.
Carli Firth took these Beauties...We love them!
And last but not least....our santa visit was a success! Noo tears and he told santa he wanted a Semi Truck (which of course he will open on christmas...Santa is cool at our house)
I will try to be better this coming year...yea right!

Forgotten Chicken

The ingredients: Boneless skinless chicken breasts, minute rice, 1 pkg. onion soup mix, can of cream of chicken soup, can of cream of celery soup, water. Mix together “cream of” soups, 1 can of water, and 2 cups of minute rice (uncooked.) Pour into a buttered casserole dish. Lay chicken breasts on top of rice mixture and sprinkle onion soup mix on top. Cover with tin foil. Don’t forget that important step! Here is where the name Forgotten Chicken comes in. Once you have it in the casserole dish you can put it in the oven and forget it! Put it in on a low temp. (around 250-275) for 3 hours at least, Or you can cook it at 350-375 (depending on your oven) for one to one and a half hours. It is hard to mess up so if you forget it is in there don’t worry, it is probably still okay! The rice on the outside edges should be slightly browned and crispy and the rice on the inside soft and moist. YUMMY!
