Yummy Dinner Tonight!

I wanted to do a little a post of Dinner tonight! I was so proud of myself. Last little while Mike as been complaining of having the same things every week. So I am trying so hard to switch the menu up a little and tonight I scored BIG with the family. I have to give credit to my sister Chris for the recipe she is such a good cook and I wish I could cook like her. I try and sometimes I succeed and other times I fail, but hey at least I try. Well tonight we had the Bacon Cheeseburger Roll-ups

Recipe from the Kraft Foods website...
1 lb. lean ground beef
4 slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, chopped
{I used the stuff already in the bag...not bacon bits though}
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 lb. (8 oz.) VELVEETA Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1 pkg. (13.8 oz.) refrigerated pizza crust
HEAT oven to 400°F.
Brown ground beef with bacon and onions in large skillet on medium-high heat; drain. Return meat mixture to skillet. Add VELVEETA; cook until melted, stirring frequently. Cool 10 min.
UNROLL dough onto baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Press into 15x8-inch rectangle; top with meat mixture. Roll up, starting at one of the long sides. Rearrange if necessary so roll is seam-side down.
BAKE 20 to 25 min. or until golden brown.
Serve with a litle ketchup, mustard, and green salad or fruit and you have a great meal.

Spread the Love!

I saw this on Adrienne's Blog and thought I would give it a try so here is how it works.

I thought this would be something fun to do.

{Lucky you!}
The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
2- What I create will be just for you.
3- It'll be done this year.
4- You have no clue what it's going to be.It may be a story. It may be a joke book, autographed picture of myself, handmade bag, or a little invention of my own! I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows?
5- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog.

Valentine's Day!

We had such a wonderful Valentine's Day! First we started out with a basketball game with Tanner and he did very well I was so proud of him. Then we headed home changed clothes and took the kids to Red Robin for lunch, they loved it. Jake was a little scared of the Red Robin bird that walks around, he wasn't really interested in eating just watching out for the bird to come around. After lunch we headed to pick up some heart pizzas for dinner and then came home and hung out for awhile. Every year we have a candle light dinner and the boys just love it. We had my parents up for dinner and we enjoyed having them up to spend Valentine's Day with us. After dinner we played some games and then settled down to watch a movie. I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day and now we can't wait till St. Patrick's day for our green dinner.

Our Trip to California

Last weekend we flew to Vacaville California to surprise Mike's sister Debbie. We went down with Mike's sister Suzie and her little family. We left early Saturday morning and meet over at the airport. Ryan is a pilot and got the chance to fly us down on the plan that he flies. We arrived in California got out rental cars and then headed over to surprise Debbie. She had no idea that we were coming. Suzie had told her oldest daughter and she then told her dad that morning so someone at least knew that we were coming. We had a tons of fun, the kids played with their cousins, went and grabbed some lunch at the In and Out(love that restaurant could eat like 3 of those hamburgers and fries) headed back to Debbie's her husband had to leave town so we hung out for a little while. Mike was supper excited to go to Vacaville this is where he served his mission. He took us around to see some of his mission. He could even remember where his apartment was. After that we headed to a fun little park and the kids played and played. The next day we got up and headed to the Jelly Belly Factory. It was pretty cool to see how they make the jelly beans. The kids loved it. We stayed for the Super Bowel and had a lot of yummy food and then headed home. We had a lot of fun and own Ryan and Suzie a big thanks for the fun airplane ride. And Debbie for letting us crash at her house unexpected. We love you guys.

The New and Improved!

So my dear husband has not cut his hair for months. He had a goal not to cut it until his parents came home which is in April. I can only imagine what it would look like if he really did that. I told he couldn't do that he would look like Grizzly Adams or worse. So then he decided that he wouldn't cut it until his parents came home in February for a baptism thinking that if he waited it would make his parents come home early and stay home. Well today I finally convinced him that whether he cuts his hair or not his parents are not going to come home until April. He really misses his parents being gone, but I think he finally realized they aren't going to come home just for him to cut his hair. So tonight we went clean and got a new look.
The before as if you can't tell

The after he looks so handsome

Happy Birthday Grandma!

I just want to wish my Grandma a very Happy Birthday! I love this lady more than anything. She is such a sweet and loving person. My children adore her and love their Grandma Fillmore. I honestly could not ask for a better grandma. She remembers every ones birthdays, willing to help anyone out, has enough love to share with the world, makes the best food, I love to hear her laugh and spend time with her, passed on the great trait of shopping, and has taught me so much throughout my life. I just want everyone to know how much I love her and much she means to me and my family and hope that when I am her age I am still going like she is and look as young as she looks. Love you Grandma! Happy Birthday!
