blurb from Toni's blog .....
"Starting on January 1st and lasting 21 days (except on Sundays)... Every morning I will post a daily challenge for you to do. You will then have until the next day to complete the challenge (or longer if you need), and then check back here and link up your post to my blog for everyone to see (lots of pictures are a plus). Thats it! Simple eh? I promise they will be easy challenges. It's only 3 weeks... you can do it! You will be so happy you did."
feel free to head on over to Toni's blog and take the challenge too!
Sorry, I know I have been missing. We were home visiting family this past weekend and we have been spending time together and getting ready for Christmas. I have lots of stories and pictures to share and will probally be back next week. I miss you all.
I hope everyone has a very merry Christmas!
I am leaving you all with some Christmas cheer....
Last night was the awards banquet for the Jr. Lego League.
The boys enjoyed Lego League so much and are sad that it is over.
They also can't wait till next year to do it again!
Here is their team, minus 2 kids.
the team and their coach
Van and his trophy.
Petey and his trophy.
The boys had lots of fun. A police detective fingerprinted all of them and showed the team how to dust for fingerprints. ( I think that was their favorite night.) The team used microscopes. Their theme was simple machines and how they help the human body. The team learned all about simple machines and they made them out of legos. It was very interesting, and amazing all that you can do with legos.
I think that I have posted this before, but I made it last night and was asked for the recipe, so I thought that I would share it again.
Baked Potato Soup
~3 cans of cream of potato
~3 cans of cheddar soup (Campbell's makes it)
~1 cup of sour cream
~6 baked potatoes cut up in to bite size pieces
~ shredded Cheddar Cheese
Mix soups, sour cream, and potatoes and cook in crock pot until heated through (maybe 2 hours). Top with bacon, shredded cheese, and scallions and serve.
Tip: fork stab the potatoes and wrap in foil. Cook in crock pot over night and they will be ready to use for the soup in the morning. (You can also do that during the day for baked potatoes for dinner). You could also boil them on the stove. Also, I found it way too thick so I thinned it out with milk.
