Birthday pics and other rambles...

I did it again ladies!  I got up early. I made smoothies and waffles for the kids this morning!  The only problem is by this time now(its 1:30)  I'm feeling very tired,, and I still have a long day ahead of me.  Hopefully my body will just get used to it.  Honestly its only like 30 minutes sleep less than I would normally get,, you wouldn't think it should make that much of a difference.  It was very hard this morning,, every ounce of my body said"go back to bed"...but I didn't.  I know Jess for one really likes me being up and awake and more talkative to her in the morning.. she is a morning person.

Tonight I'm making homemade chicken pot pie for dinner!  This is a new recipe.  I'm excited about it.  I already have the chicken cooked up and as soon as I get off here I'm gonna go ahead and put it all together so at dinner time I can just pop it into the oven!  The recipe actually makes 2,, one to eat now and one to freeze for later.  I hope we like it!

I had these pic from the kid's birthdays a couple of weeks ago so I thought I'd post them..

The Birthday girl on her day

 And here's Gary on his special day
 Emma attacking Gary,, haha
Here they are at Toys R Us.  I think Gary enjoyed going to Ft. Wayne and getting to spend his money.. We ate at Fazolis that night, and instead of birthday cake,, since we still had leftovers from Emma's the day before,, he picked his own dessert there.. He picked strawberry cheesecake!  My favorite,, he was even nice enough to let me try a bite.. It sure was yummy!

Awesome updates Jill! Cute pics too. Hey if the chicken pot pie is the one I copied for you, you may want to make both of the pies tonight because there are 5 in your family. We usually can eat almost an entire pie with our family...it's so yummie.

April- it is that recipe. I was just getting ready to put it in the freezer. Guess I won't :) We'll see how much we have leftover so I will know what to do for next time. Thanks for the advice. I'm a little nearvous about the kids liking it due to all the veggies,,,,although they do like store bought pot pies. I really hope they like it!
