Life Is Precious

Late last week I was sitting at the computer reading the discussion about Magic Mike.  Yep, the movie.  It has been a pretty heated debate about why or why not people should or should not see it.

Then.

Then I was reminded that it really does not matter.  MM is fake, it is make believe.  Who cares!

I was reminded of something much, MUCH, more precious than some silly movie.

Life.

Life Is Precious.

We never know when our time will come.

We never know if something is going to happen.

We never know.

Last Friday a friend of mine posted that a daughter and cousin of one of her friends went missing.

The girls are 8 and 10 (or 11, reports vary).

Their names are Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook.
Iowa, Missing Girls,
  I ask that you stop, STOP RIGHT NOW!  I don't care where you are, I don't care what you are doing.  Just STOP!  Now, please PRAY for these precious children.  Pray for their safety, for their strength, for the courage that they may need.  Pray for their safe return.  Pray for their parents, family and friends.  Pray for every single person that is helping to find these girls.  PRAY!

I do not know these girls, we actually live states away.  I do know one of their friends and I do know that one of the girls is close to my daughters age.  I have been sick all weekend thinking about what the poor parents must be going through.  I just can't imagine.

If  you are close to the area the girls went missing from, help if you can.  If you are not close, you can still pray, you can pass info on, you can look in your area.  The girls could be anywhere by now and I just pray they are OK.  Let's bring these girls home!

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
