our day in iPhone pics

this little chica is back into the school rhythm.

she got up this morning sassy as ever.  so i took her picture as she did her sassy poses.

Potato Cheese Soup

5 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 small onion chopped
1 small carrot, chopped
2 stalks chopped celery
14 oz chicken broth
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
3 cups milk
1 tablespoon minced parsley
salt and pepper
1 cup cheddar cheese
In a large saucepan, combine potatoes, onion, carrot, celery and broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover, simmer for 15 minutes, lightly mash.

In a small saucepan, melt butter; stir in flour until smooth. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir into potato mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Add parsley, salt and pepper. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese until melted.

Sadly this is an iPhone pic...the soup is wonderful and totally deserved better pics. But I was busy and this is all I got! But Gary and I ate all of it and I will be making it again soo.  So I will get more pics in the future!

Hayden played with his olives today as usual. My kids love olives.  If they don't eat olives I know I should call the doctor...something is wrong.

Tonight my silly daughter told us she could breath through a macaroni.
We were informed it has a hole in in and therefore she can breath through it.  Cool! Now you know!

This is my life with a 2 year old and a 5 year old.
I wouldn't trade this for anything.  I love my job :))

Gary and I's nephew Rob, had is first baby tonight!  She is 9 lbs and she was born just a bit ago. 
We are so excited for him and can't wait to meet her!!

She shares a birthday with my Mom...Happy Birthday girls!!

Thanks for the recipe. You had me at potato and cheese so it doesn't matter what the pix look like.
I love miss Sassy's poses too.

Layla is so cute -- when you're that cute it's ok to have a little sass fest now and then! :)
